Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (Emanuelle E Gli Ultimi Cannibali; a.k.a. Trap Them and Kill Them) is a 1977 Italian sexploitation film by Joe D'Amato. When a nurse is savagely bitten by a female patient in a mental hospital, Emanuelle, still working as an undercover journalist, travels into the Amazon jungle to investigate the girl's claims that she was brought up by a hidden cannibal tribe.

The film is notable for its scenes of gore, which include rape, castration, cannibalism and disembowelment, and for being a mix of erotic and horror, something on which D'Amato would later focus with his films Porno Holocaust and Erotic Nights of the Living Dead.
