Legendary cult filmmaker
Bruno Mattei (SNUFF
JAIL: WOMEN'S HELL, the CANNIBAL
HOLOCAUST sequels, and HELL
OF THE LIVING DEAD) delivered this exceptionally sleazy version
of the Caligula legend in 1989. It was obviously inspired by the International
success of Tinto
Brass' CALIGULA (1979) but - while this story travels some of
the same ground - it also adds the character of Messalina, an ambitious
equally-depraved protagonist, to the heady mix.
While Bruno Mattei's
CALIGULA doesn't have the hardcore inserts of the
Brass production, it is notoriously sleazy, beyond the Euro Trash norm.
For that reason, it has seldom been seen uncut (most prints run 92 minutes).
From Greece comes this rare 109 minute version. Besides the numerous orgies,
unconventional sex acts and torture sequences, Mattei's story also introduces
a threesome with a dwarf, a noblewoman searching for the world's biggest
penis (she finds it attached to a dirty slum ogre), a bisexual bridal
night rape, and (hardcore) donkey and horse sex.
Italian film; widescreen, totally uncut version (109 min.), in English
language (with removable Greek subtitles), DVD encoded for ALL REGION
NTSC, playable on any American machine. Extras include numerous trailers.
