cult director Roberto Bianchi Montero (of THE
SLASHER IS A SEX MANIAC fame) turns his sites on ancient Rome
and a cockeyed vision of emperor Caligula. Iinspired by the
European success of Guido Malatesta's EROTIC NIGHTS OF POPPEA,
this one makes no attempt at preserving the dignity of the Roman tradition.
Instead, Mr Bianchi is interested in delivering only an outrageous - albeit
sleazy - comedy.
Rome, emperor Caligula has a serious problem: he is having trouble attaining
and maintaining an erection. Worse, the Feast of Priapus is coming [Priapus
was god of masculinity and virility]. And on that day, it is expected
that the leader show his manhood coram populo [to his people].
Caligula seeks help from professor Barnardus who attempts to cure the
ruler, first through rather traditional methods but then resorting to
more kinky solutions.
