Product Description:

A reputedly faithful cinematic depiction of the historical events of Caligula's Rome, including the decadence and debauchery that marked his reign. This notorious release has faced rather hysterical hostility from would-be censors. Financed by Penthouse Magazine magnate Bob Guccione, who was accused of inserting hardcore sex scenes after completing photography with the impressive and esteemed cast of British actors. Contains graphic sex and violence. The R-rated version is shorter by 53 minutes!

Description by Image Entertainment:

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 will startle and amaze you like no other film ever made! 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.

Plot Synopsis:

"Caligula" is Bob Guccione's star-studded pornographic look into the world of Ancient Rome. It depicts the lusty and demented Caesar Caligula during his short-lived stint as Emperor of the mighty Roman Empire. While in power, Caligula had an affair with his sister and forced senators' wives to prostitute themselves. Caligula was finally assassinated by his own officers and replaced with his dim-witted cousin Claudius.
