Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals

Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals, also known as Trap Them and Kill Them, is a 1977 Italian sexploitation cannibal film directed by Joe D'Amato. The film involves photojournalist Emanuelle (Laura Gemser), who encounters a cannibalistic woman bearing a tattoo of an Amazonian tribe in a mental hospital. Along with Professor Mark Lester (Gabriele Tinti), the two travel to the Amazon with a team to discover the source of the long-thought-extinct tribe that still practices cannibalism today.


In a New York City psychiatric ward, photojournalist Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) learns about a girl there who was found in the Amazon rainforest. Emanuelle discovers that she appears to have been raised by the Apiacá, a tribe of cannibals thought to be lost. She contacts Professor Mark Lester (Gabriele Tinti), the curator at the American Museum of Natural History, and persuades him to come with her to the Amazon.
