Sexy young journalist Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) is at it again, investigating whatever there is to investigate, using primarily her hot body to get out of many a tough spot, and if she's not investigating she photographs nude women.

And exactly nude photography is what gets Tony (Giulio Bianchi), the boyfriend of one of her models (Stefania Nocilli) so mad at her that he eventually threatens to kill Emanuelle with a pistol. But Emanuelle just treats him to a blowjob, and all of a sudden, he is a changed man.

Then Emanuelle enters the harem of millionaire Van Darren (Lars Bloch) as one of his concubines, but not before she seduces his bodyguard (Salvatore Baccaro), and teaches the rich man who thinks he can buy everything with his money a lesson or two - all the while gathering enough prof that he is actually an illegal arms dealer. She gets out of his harem only withthe help of Count Elvize (Gabriele Tinit), who soon enough invites her to Venice, where she seduces both him and his wife (Paola Senatore) to save their marriage.

Later, at an orgy the Count and Countess have, Emanuelle picks up the lead of a stud-farm in Miami, which she visits under the pretense of wanting to have her deviant sexual fantasies fulfilled. But actually she seems to have come solely to secretly take sleazy pictures ... until she stumbles over a snuff movie.

Now there is some lead she wants to follow up on, and soon enough she lands in bed with a senator (Roger Browne) who is secretly also part of a snuff ring, and who feeds her LSD before flying her to a live snuff performance (where Emanuelle of course secretly takes pics). But the material she has gathered is so explosive that her editor refuses to publish it.

Enraged, Emanuelle quits her job, and, with her on-and-off boyfriend Bill (Riccardo Salvino), flies off to an African island paradise - where Bill promptly sells her to the natives' chief - but the next day Emanuelle and Bill have to realise everything was just a movie set and they run off into the jungle.


Definitely the most explicit (this one features fake snuff footage, hardcore sex and a horse masturbation - Laura Gemser performing in neither of these scenes) and therefore the most notorious and probably best-known of the Black Emanuelle-series, Emanuelle in America is actually rather poor on story and instead seems to veer off into a differnet direction in any other scene. However, Laura Gemser, who gets naked quite frequently, does a wonderful job holding the film together nevertheless, and as long as she's on-screen once tends to forget what a piece of sleaze the film actually is.

So no, it's not a good movie, it's not even the best entry into the Black Emanuelle-series, but if you like 1970's style sexploitation and/or Laura Gemser, you might still find yourself being greatly entertained.
