Another "official" Black Emanuelle entry, from Bruno Mattei.
Dark, brutal, and a little bloody. Fairly typical of the WIP genre of Women Who Both Hate & Love Women.
It's interesting to watch how the Emanuelle films went from light, carefree, soft-porn travelogues to violent tales of misanthropy.
Luigi Ceccarelli's first soundtrack is great (though repetitive), and easily recalls Morricone's The Thing of the same year. Quite possibly a lift, as Mattei's film came out over five months later.
Taking place mostly in a small prison, it's visually limited, but there's dark, moody lighting throughout that reminded me of Giallo, and even a scene that recalls the set design of Suspira.
It doesn't really feel like an Emanuelle flick, and for the genre, it's boilerplate and uneven, but there are enough well-crafted scenes to make this a worthwhile watch.
