EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS (aka Trap Them and Kill Them) (1977)
Joe D’Amato’s cannibal epic is also a soft-core erotic epic. This Emanuelle (aka Black Emanuelle) underwent a slight name change as a disconnect from her literary namesake and its related franchise with Emanuelle in America (also D’Amato’s). The outrageously hot Laura Gesmer is the black Em, a reporter who sets off to investigate cannibal killings in the deep deep jungle. Soft-core sex and nudity is offset by gut-munching gore. Like all European sleaze, there is a tendency towards some talky stretches – but at 90 minutes it’s tighter than Emanuelle in America (which has its own fair share of zoological shocks!). As is the case with most movies in the cannibal genre, the gore is pretty devastating and definitely not for the squeamish. But hey — boobs!
