In a gripping tale of courage resourcefulness and determination the consequences of a plane crash strip bare the morals of the survivors. The pilot of the doomed aircraft Frank Towns (James Stewart) is an aviator of the old school used to seat-of-the-pants flying distrustful of new technology. With his navigator Lew Moran (Richard Attenborough) he is piloting a cargo-cum-passenger plane high above the Arabian desert when a powerful sandstorm rises from below. Trusting his instincts Frank decides to fly through and above the storm; a risky move which leads to the starboard engine overheating and catching fire shortly followed by the demise of the port engine. Without power the plane begins a long dive towards the ground a sequence memorably intercut with the opening credits before impacting messily. Staggering from the wreckage the living find themselves deep within the Arabian desert far off their original flight plan and with little hope of rescue. Two of their number were killed instantly while a third (a young oil-worker) has been gravely wounded - right from this beginning the crosses of the dead loom over those left alive. Frank blames himself bitterly for this tragedy (correctly so from an objective perspective) but still tries to exert some authority over the rabble and provide reassurance. Since they have enough water for about ten days according to Dr.Renaud (Christian Marquand) and plenty of dates as food Frank and Lew spin the yarn that they will surely be found by search aircraft. Meanwhile a pecking order emerges among the men (a mix of oil-workers soldiers technical personnel and the aircrew) with the more learned/respected exerting control over the manual workers. As time passes the situation becomes increasingly bleak and Captain Harris (Peter Finch) decides to march to the nearest oasis with Sgt.Watson (Ronald Fraser) who is less than keen on the idea. In fact Sgt.Watson manages to fake a sprained ankle just to get out of the desert trip (a move symptomatic of his hatred of the military) and his superior leaves with another passenger. Unfortunately another survivor Trucker Cobb (Ernest Borgnine) is so deranged that he staggers after the departed pair. Frank is still so wracked with guilt that he goes after Cobb risking his own life in the brutal midday heat and fails once again in his task. Just when the situation looks irretrievably lost Heinrich Dorfmann (Hardy Kruger) comes up with an audacious idea - why not build a smaller plane from the debris of the first? Initially he is ridiculed both for being German and for having such a crackpot scheme but attitudes change slightly when he reveals that he is actually an aircraft designer. Once again there is hope no matter how slim that they won't become vulture food - just as long as the struggle for control between Frank and Heinrich doesn't destroy the entire enterprise...
With EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS that the late great splatter genius made his most mesmerising flesh n' fear masterpiece. Spinning a similar story to the later genre trendsetter CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, D'Amato begins his horror-shocker in Manhattan, wherein an undercover journalist (essayed by the legendary sex symbol Laura Gemser) comes across some found footage of native practises. Further indicating its influence on the movies that followed, D'Amato sends his raven-haired reporter all the way to South America although even she cannot be prepared for the native nastiness that is about entrap her in the Amazon jungle! Packing in plenty of exposed skin, and corporeal craziness, EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS has finally arrived in the UK nearly 40 years after its theatrical debut thanks to the daring of 88 Films, who present this gruelling gore-fest re-mastered and fully uncut and uncensored!

Shot back to back with 'Emanuelle In Prison' 'Violence In A Woman's Prison' is along the lines of 'The Concrete Jungle' and such other caged delights. Laura Gemser plays yet another Emanuelle a reporter who goes to prison undercover on trumped up charges to expose the corruption within the prison and to secure a scoop about the bad conditions run by sadistic warden Lorraine De Selle. Naturally the place is a hellhole. Gemser bares her fabulous body has sex with Gabrielle Tinti dumps a bucket of faeces on a guard and spends time in the hole where she is devoured and chewed on by hungry rats! Extremely kinky as expected with Mattei managing to stage a somewhat bizarre art rape-scene which looks like something from a Tinto Brass movie where the warden and her lover gets horny while watching a girl being raped and beaten up by male inmates (oh yes there are male inmates here too!). Lorraine De Selle is great as the evil warden and there's another loud great soundtrack by Luigi Ceccaralli.
Investigative reporter Emanuelle finds herself locked up in an all women penitentiary run by a ruthless warden and her brutally sadistic guards.
