Sleezy pornography first and foremost and a cannibal film secondly. Emanuelle was apparently raised by cannibals in the jungle and is working undercover in a hospital (you'd think she'd keep a lower sexual profile there but heck what do I know?). Anyhow, when she's sexing up (or so it seems) one of the patients she discovers a tattoo which represents a cannibal tribe. Anyhow, she takes some friends into the jungle to investigate and the cannibals aren't exactly happy about this. Considering the story here there is plenty of opportunity for disgusting typical Eurogore but most of the time we aren't rewarded with such. Instead we get extra sex and a smoking monkey (don't ask), yet still I did sit through the entire thing. There is a bit of a sense of humour which saves this in some ways and some of the bizarre visuals must be seen. Still there should have been more done with this, and since the sex bits disinterest me there isn't a ton of film left after you deduct that. Add a star if you are a male I suppose!
