Emanuelle (Laura Gemsar) hires a hit-man to kill her abusive husband. Killing her husband was only part of her revenge. She also wants to kill his two business partners who held him Sodomize her. The hit-man not satisfied with his payment decides to blackmail Emanuelle into paying him even more money. Will Emanuelle get her revenge before the hit-man she hired exposes her involvement in her husbands’ murder?
Emanuelle’s Daughter Queen of Sados is not what I would call an official black Emanuelle film and one has to wonder if they only named the lead character Emanuelle because of Laura Gemsar’s involvement in the film. The film makes good use of the exotic Greek locations and the director’s uses a voyeuristic like camera style that suits the feel of the film. The story is your standard abused wife wants to get revenge type story and despite a really flimsy storyline the film does have a few solid moments especially the flashback scenes where Emanuelle is being sodomized and the films finale at a deserted ancient Greek amphitheatre.
The sex scenes are all well done and at times genuinely erotic. The films disco score firmly places the film forever in the late 1970’s. If it wasn’t for Laura Gemsar being is this film then this film would really be a waste of time. Gemsar steals every scene she is ion and she looks stunning though out. Actress Livia Russo plays Emanuelle’s step daughter and the scene in which she is raped by the hit-man is very difficult to watch as it at times looks a tad to real in its execution. Livia Russo does a wonderful job overall in the film and it is too bad this film appears to be the only one she ever made. The films anticlimactic ending leaves a lot to be desired and it doesn’t help that is film end rather abruptly. Emanuelle’s Daughter Queen of Sados is a mediocre film that has plenty of sleaze and just the right amount of plot twists to keep things entertaining for the most part.
Emanuelle’s Daughter Queen of Sados is presented in a full frame aspect ratio that looks like it is an open matte transfer of the film since there is plenty of space on top and bottom and the image never looks or feels cramped. The box art says that this title in anamorphic widescreen which it is not and this is most likely just a typo. Colors look nicely saturated, details look clear and sharp and print damage is minimal.
This release comes with one audio option a English language audio mix which is presented in a Dolby Digital mono. Dialog is clear and there are no problems with any distortion or any other sound defects. This audio mix while limited at times more then gets the job done.
Extras for this release include two trailers for Emanuelle’s Daughter Queen of Sados one with text and one without. Other trailers include Divine Emanuelle Love Cult, Porno Holocaust, SS Experiment Love Camp and Yellow Emanuelle. Rounding out the extras is an extensive photo gallery with 64 stills and 4 ½ minutes of outtakes which are silent and without any sound.
Emanuelle’s Daughter Queen of Sados is an average film that gets an above average DVD release. Fans of Laura Gemsar will want to pick this one up while everyone else might as well skip it.
