Wow, my first encounter with Laura Gemser! What a radiant presence she is on-screen. Hubba hubba hubba!! Oh yeah, the movie: if your tastes run to the 'schlocky horror' or the 'good bad-movie' then this one might interest you. I presume this version is censored somewhat as there is not much to offend in its content. Even so, there is still some gore and mutilation, not to mention Gemser carrying on splendidly in the buff (as one does when one is beautiful and in the Amazon).
The story starts out in New York where our reporter Emanuelle is investigating a mental hospital. There she comes across a feral girl found in the Amazon. Feral girl taks a bite out of one of the nurses- cue a trip to brazil to find out more about the tribe of cannibals. Madcap adventures ensue- including snake attack (very Freudian), inter-racial dating, a nun, communal bathing, fertility rites and disembowlment.
The acting is not too bad, in a 70s laid back kind of way, and the plot moves along at a tolerable pace. The soundtrack is quite good, again in a very 70s kind of way. The real attraction of this film is the mesmerising beauty of Laura Gemser, along with the fact that, maybe for the only time in your life, you will get to see a monkey smoking. Presumably he couldn't read the health warning on the pack.

Avoid this one - i have seen a lot of the 70's italian cannibal movies and this is abosolutely the worst one ive seen. Its boring - long segments of soft, soft sex scenes and of a bunch of middle class idiots trekking through the jungle and when the gore happens its not that great either. Avoid this even if youre a fan of these movies as there is basically nothing much to recommend it.

This is one of Italian director Joe D'Amato's best movies. A wonderful combination of sleaze & Cannibals. It stars the wonderful Laura Gemser as Emanuelle. Check out IMDB for more. This Danish, Another World dvd is without question the edition to buy. Picture quality is excellent. I already own the US Severn dvd but its nowhere near as good. If you have any interest in Italian exploitation, sex/horror movies then this is a must buy.

This is not a good film. Probably the worst Italian 'cannibal' film due to the non-existent cannibal action and atrocious 'special' effects . It probably has more appeal to fans of the softcore Emanuelle films starring Laura Gemser due to the copious amount os simulated 'love' scenes, but even those would be disappointed I think. It does also have Nieves Navarro which is a plus. But overall approach with caution.

Balderdash, with weird translated speech.. The dialogue sounded as if it was being read from a book, and ruined the whole film. Come back S. Kristal, all is foregiven.
