Storyline

While doing undercover work in a mental hospital, Emanuelle discovers a girl who seems to have been raised by a tribe of amazonian cannibals. Intrigued, Emanuelle and friends travel deep into the Amazon jungle, where they find that the supposedly extinct tribe of cannibals is still very much alive, and Emanuelle and her party are not welcome visitors.

Goofs

The "monkey" smoking as it watches the two women bathe near a waterfall is not a monkey. It's a chimpanzee - and chimpanzees are African animals, not to be found in South America. Besides, how would a wild chimp/monkey know how to smoke? See more »

Alternate Versions

The 2002 UK DVD issue was cut by 1 min 58 secs by the BBFC to edit a rape scene, a naked woman being gutted, and a close up of the cannibals slicing off a woman's breast. See more »

Sex, gore, sex, violence, sex, cannibals, and even more sex...what more can you ask for?
28 March 1999 | by UnratedXSee all my reviews

Also known as "Emmanuelle and the Last Cannibals," as well as in the USA, "Trap Them and Kill Them," this is a gory sexcapade through the amazon. Two "friends" (who seem to have sex every 5 minutes) take a trip to the jungles to study a last clan of cannibals deemed to exist. It is there that they run into a bunch of different people (who also love to have sex, I might add) who join their expedition and in turn, get a not so friendly greeting from the cannibals. It is then that the buckets full of gore come in, and the sex stops. Pretty good for its day, especially the acting and gore effects, but director Joe D'Amato could have done without all of those cheap excuses to show so much sex. It's almost like watching a gory porn. UnratedX
