Because she foiled the schemes of crooked DA Robinson (Jacques Stany) a
few times too often, Robinson has investigative reporter Emanuelle (Laura
Gemser) thrown into jail on trumped up drug charges ... where she for some
reason tries her hands on writing a play (?), which ultimately the warden
forbids her to perform.
Inside the slammer, Emanuelle also butts heads with the queen bully
Albina (Ursula Flores) and a few corrupt guards, but somehow, Emanuelle
always comes out on top, even when Albina - in DA Robinson's employ -
tries to kill her with a switchblade knife.
Then though a quartet of male convicts - O'Hara (Robert Mura), Geronimo
(Raul Cabrera), Blade (Pierangelo Pozzato) and their leader Crazy Boy
(Gabriele Tinti) - are transferred to the women's prison to wait their
final transfer to death row ... and soon enough they have taken over the
prison, killing and raping like nobody's business, holding the whole
prison hostage and demanding a safe getaway ... and none other than DA
Robinson conducts the negotiations with them ... and does everything in
his power to have Emanuelle killed in the process. Of course, in the end
everything blows up in his face when Robinson tries to shoot Emanuelle
himself but is instead shot by the convicts, the quartet of convicts is
also killed and Emanuelle's case is reopened by Robinson's successor as
DA, especially since she saved the life of a police officer (Carlo De
Mejo) during the proceedings.
Before all that happens though, Emanuelle is raped by Crazy Boy (who in
real life is her husband) and forced to play Russian Roulette against
Albina (Albina loses). And Blade (called so because of his trademark
razorblade) is emasculated by his own razorblade, which one of the female
convicts (MAria Romano) has placed inside her vagina before seducing him -
Emanuelle's Escape from Hell, the last film of the Black
Emanuelle series, is typical Bruno Mattei-fare: He shows little
sympathy or respect to any of his characters, instead kills them off at
will, not even caring about narrative conventions, and his main focus is
never on storytelling but always on violence, sleaze and degradation. This
film is quite a long way from the Black Emanuelle-films from
the mid- to late-1970's by Joe D'Amato, which were good-natured
softsexfilms in which the lead character (always Laura Gemser) uses her
beautiful naked body to get what she wants ... a long way in more ways
than one, as Laura Gemser doesn't even have one single nude scene here
(even during her rape scene she remains fully clothed) - what a pity.
