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 - ouch.


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.
