This is one of the more bizarre entries in the series, playing more like a sex-themed giallo thriller from five years earlier. Emanuelle (Rosemarie Lindt) is out to avenge her sister (Patrizia Gori), who committed suicide after escaping from her sadistic lover Carlo (Luigi Montefiore of Antropophagus fame). So she chains him up in her basement, drugs him, and forces him to watch her having sex. It doesn't sound like such a terrible fate, but Carlo starts hallucinating all kinds of bloody horrors and cannibalistic doings, so he decides he has to break free and kill Emanuelle. The ending must be seen to be believed, and if this one doesn't rank quite up there with director Aristide Massaccesi's notorious Emanuella Nera in America or Emanuelle e gli Ultimi Cannibali among the gross-out champs, it's still a far cry from the soft-focus eroticism of the French entries in the series. But what else can one expect from a film co-written by Massaccesi (aka "Joe D'Amato") and Bruno Mattei (Inferno dei Morti-Viventi, Zombi 3)? The German version (Die Lady Mit der Pussycat) contains added sex scenes with Brigitte Lahaie.
