Euro-sleaze merchant Joe D'Amato probably thought he was bringing something new to the exploitation field by fusing elements of the long-running softcore Emmanuelle series with the cannibal subgenre foisted on the viewing public by such directors as D'Amato and Umberto Lenzi, among others. The end product is merely excruciating tedium punctuated by occasional kinky sex in the first half of the film and cheap, gag-inducing special effects in the second. The threadbare plot involves the investigations of a glamorous journalist (Laura Gemser, then-current star of the Emmanuelle series, though not actually playing that character here) into the cannibal proclivities of a certain Amazon tribe. After viewing documentary footage of cannibals torturing, executing and devouring their enemies, she apparently still wants to learn about such behavior firsthand and journeys down the Amazon with a research team to find the tribe in question. Naturally, the entire group falls into the cannibals' clutches, leading to endless messy scenes of people being carved up, impaled, disemboweled, split in half and (of course) eaten. Too gory for softcore fans and too dull for gorehounds, this is basically a film with no target audience whatsoever. ~ Cavett Binion, All Movie Guide

Unless you are into bad movies I think you could find something better to do with your time. Two of the girls are cute but passionless. The sex scenes have 0 chemistry. The most enthusiasm shown in the movie is for cutting off nipples and other sexual parts (shown in graphic detail).

The whole movie is boring to distraction. An awful lot of time is spend showing people moving from one place to another. Scenes of cars driving on the road, airplanes flying, boats going down or up river, people walking down a path. Use your fast forward liberally if you rent this. The only reason I can of think to rent this is if, for some reason, you like making fun of bad movies. If that turns you on, then you will find much to make fun of here.

While not as great as D'amato's Emanuelle in America, this bizarre movie is still cheesy, sleazy, and fascinating enough to warrant viewing. The beautiful Laura Gemsar shows signs of life in her portrayal of lady reporter Emanuelle. What's really great about this movie is the blending of leering softcore romping and grossout gore. And i mean gross-out. On view here is graphic castration, nipple slicing, abdomen-gutting...The gore and sex are never explicitly intercut together, and director D'Amato was a tried and true hand at combining succsesful genres to increase the odds of box office bounty, but there seems to be some gleefully sadistic correlation between the two. Add to the fact that the progression of graphic scenes goes from sex to gory body mutilation, and there is something more than soft focus groping going on here. an added plus is the soundtrack is great. And the transfer is great. Give in!
