Not for the faint of heart....

by Poe on 11/28/2007

Ive seen several versions of Caligula, This is by far the best. I'd forgotten how many huge stars are in it. tons of violence and nudity, but after a lil while all you really see is th movie for what it is, a very sick minded Ruler.

Product Overview

Before Rome. Before Gladiator. The most controversial film of all time as you've never experienced it before! Combining lavish spectacle and top award-winning stars, this landmark production was shrouded in secrecy since its first day of filming. Now, this unprecedented special edition presents a bolder and more revealing Caligula than ever before, with a beautiful new high-definition transfer from recently uncovered negative elements and hours of never-before-seen bonus material! From the moment he ascends to the throne as Emperor, Caligula enforces a reign like no other as power and corruption transform him into a deranged beast whose deeds still live on as some of the most depraved in history.

Reviews
ReviewSource Mondo Digital
Review The standard against which cinematic sleaze must be measured, Caligula has something for everybody: top notch British actors for dramatic weight, a fact-laden script by Gore Vidal, opulent visual design and flashy colors for European film addicts, graphic and plentiful bloodshed for gorehounds, and hardcore sex of every conceivable bent for the raincoat crowd. Obviously this isn't the most comfortable mix, but Caligula still manages to retain a bizarre, shocking fascination two decades after its release...Designed to compete with the fledgling film efforts of Playboy Productions (who financed Roman Polanski's Macbeth), Caligula was Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione's attempt to break into the movie market with an utterly excessive slap to viewers' sensibilities...Remarkable, dangerous, mind-damaging stuff, and definitely not for the faint of heart.
