Alternate Versions

There is a cut Italian print (approx 93 minutes in length). Instead of simply dubbing over the English dialogue. The English dialogue is translated and dubbed immediately after the English lines are spoken, so dialogue in both languages is present. See more »

The sickiest of sick!
20 May 1999 | by Jens-28See all my reviews

The late smutpeddler, Joe D'amato, has released hundreds of disgustin' sleaze epics but the 100 min. uncut version of "Emanuelle In America" takes the cake. Horsemasturbation, hardcore porn, castrations and the most vile "snuff" images you ever will see on film. Canadian maverick David Cronenberg was actually inspired by this flick to make his masterpiece, "Videodrome". Forget "Salo", "Caligula", "Man Bites Dog", "Man Behind The Sun" and "Cannibal Holocust" cuz this one will eat your mind!
