While undercover in an insane asylum, reporter Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) witnesses a nurse having her breast bitten off by a patient - and she immediately realizes there is a story there, so she tries to make the patient talk by the only way Emanuelle can ... sex. It's not that she learns much from her, but she does find out that our breastbiting patient has spent some time with a cannibal tribe in the Amazon region - a tribe that was thought extinct some 50 years ago !

So Emanuelle hooks up with professor Mark (Gabriele Tinti, Laura Gemser's real life husband), and not only does she soon start having sex with him, she also persuades him to come to the Amazon with her - expenses paid by her newspaper - to find the cannibal tribe ... (Now why do I think trying to fina a cannibal tribe is not that good an idea ?)

Down at the Amazon, even before they reach the starting point of their expedition though, they stumble upon a mission that was attacked by cannibals and everybody was brutally massacred. And suddenly Emanuelle and Mark, along with teenage Isabelle (Mónica Zanchi), nun Sister Angela (Annamaria Clementi), porter Salvadore (Percy Hogan), shady and impotent hunter Donald (Donald O'Brien) and his alcoholic wife Maggie (Susan Scott) find themselves threatened by cannibals, who just can't be far behind ... and soon enough, Sister Angela is eaten up, and Donald and Maggie are starting to act weird - 'cause you know, the two of them have an agenda all of their own, they want to find a plane that has crashed somewhere in the region, and that was carrying a fortune in diamonds. Eventually Donald and Maggie leave the others and find the plane and the diamonds - but stupidly enough, they don't just fetch the diamonds and return to the others, but - because Donald suddenly realizes he has overcome his impotence - they have sex right there on the spot - and thus are easy prey for the cannibals, who put a spear into his body (which doesn't kill him though) and drag her off ...

Now, to free Maggie, our remaining group decide to launch an attack on the cannibal village, Donald, Salvadore and Isabelle from one side, Mark and Emanuelle from the other - but Salvadore is killed by the cannibals and Donald and Isabelle are captured soon enough, and not only do they have to watch Maggie being brutally killed, but also Donald is cut in two and Isabelle gangraped ...

Then Emanuelle has an idea to save the day - she will disguise as the cannibals' water goddess (which mainly means she will be all naked with one of the cannibals' holy symbols painted on her chest) and emerge from the water to a firework provided by Mark's flaregun, and fetch the girl before the cannibals realize what's happens to them ... and wouldn't you know it, and Emanuelle, Isabelle and Mark make good their getaway, if only just.

 


Just in case you wondered, yes, this is a sleazy and violent jungle adventure, just as sleazy as all films from the Black Emanuelle-series and nearly as violent as all cannibal movies - but at least there are no real killings of animals in this one. It's not a good film, at times it's really stupid (I liked the scene where Donald and Maggie start shagging after finding the diamonds even though the cannibals are just a few steps away best) and the finale is somewhat underwhelming. On the other hand, the film is not too bad either, provided sleazy cannibal films are your cup of tea, it has its moments and is at times pretty tense ... and of course it's got Laura Gemser who gets naked a lot.
