Did You Know?


The production recycled virtually all of the $20 million worth of sets, costumes, props, and extras from Caligula (1979), when it was feared that the latter would never be released due to numerous pending lawsuits. In the opening credits, there is a legal statement acknowledging this: "Certain elements of the sets and decorations created for the film Caligula by Danilo Donati have been used in the production of this film without his consent."

When the fly is buzzing around in front of the Roman guard's face (just before he eats it), if you look carefully, as it flies in front of his face, you can barely see the string holding up the fake fly being dangled in front of the actor's face. See more »

Oh woe is me!
2 April 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I like 1970s sexploitation like the best of them. Nudity, violence, an historic setting, a baseline plot ....all supposed to be here. The boxing and the reviews therefore led me to rip open the DVD box "Messalina" and "Messalina 2" with some excitement.

Sadly this flick just flatlines. It is a series of poorly connected scenes with an occasional soft-core pop up thrown in. The nudity is actually very modest. There is no violence (contextural or gratuitous)- only a jarring comical edge. There has been reasonable expenditure on sets for this sort of flick- but this is no Malcolm McDowell's Caligula. It is an historical and cinematic rag n' bone sale.

Frankly my dears I would give this a wide berth......
