SEVERIN FILMS BRINGS TWO ITALIAN EXPLOITATION CLASSICS TO BLU-RAY DISC!
Laura Gemser portrays "Black Emanuelle" in Severin Films' Standard & Limited editions of Joe D'Amato's EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS, and Bruno Mattei's VIOLENCE IN A WOMEN'S PRISON!
I've never seen either film, but out of the two, I (quite shockingly) would rather watch Joe D'Amato's cannibal flick! While I would typically approach any D'Amato production with some trepidation (mostly because I haven't seen a film of his that I haven't groaned and grumbled through), I have to admit that the trailer for EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS makes it look pretty damned entertaining!
These definitely seem like a pair of must-owns for fans of exploitation cinema, so if the titles (and directors) alone have caught your eye, be sure to continue reading for the full specs & extras on both Severin releases!
EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS (1977 - LIMITED & STANDARD EDITIONS)
Synopsis: While doing undercover work in a mental hospital, Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) 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.
