Investigative reporter Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) goes into prison undercover to expose the unbearable conditions for Amnesty International. Of course, she soon has to face these unbearable conditions herself, but finds a friend in prison-doctor Gabriele Tinti, who is actually an inmate of the neighbouring man's prison himself. Soon, Emanuelle is put into solitary confinement by the sadistic warden (Lorraine de Selle) - who by the way likes to watch her female prisoners being raped & beaten up -, where the poor girl is lmost torn to pieces by rats. Almost dying from that, the doctor comes to her rescue - even if it means he has to go against his moral principles in another case -, & soon, when Emanuelle's fellow inmates stage a prison revolt, she & the doctor escape. Instead of really going through with the escape though, they decide to have sex on the way (!), & are of course caught & brought back to prison. But once there, they learn that the law has finally taken over prison matters due to Emanuelle's report & a letter sent by the doctor, now turning the wardens into prisoners themselves but freeing Emanuelle.


Bruno Mattei has the reputation of being a master of sleaze for the sake of sleaze, & this movie illustrates that quite clearly. He never lets pity for his characters or actual storytelling stand in the way of showing sex, rapes, violence or degradations, & what better genre could there be to do so but a women in prison-movie. But whereas other sleazemasters like Jess Franco always tried to push genre conventions to the limits, to go ever more over the top to keep the genre alive, Mattei seems to be content to just work as much depravity as possible into the standard plot. Also, his treatment of the Emanuelle character is rather dull - while in Joe D'Amato's movies (& he made most of the Black Emanuelle-movies) she was a lively, self-assured, strong & independent, but also horny girl who did often use her sexuality as a weapon, she here (as in Mattei's other Black Emanuelle movie, Emanuelle fuga dall'inferno/Emanuelle's Escape from Hell) is more of a passive, even up-tight spectator of the proceedings, who lets happen to her what may, be it good or bad.
