Storyline

The deranged Roman emperor Gainus 'Caligula' (Little Boots) Caesar (12-41 A.D.) rules Rome with an iron fist and has anyone tortured and executed for even the slightest insubordination. Mostly set during the last year of his reign, as Caligula loses support due to his brutal and crazed excess, a young Moor woman, named Miriam, becomes his lover while plotting to kill him to avenge the murder of a friend which Caligula was responsible for. But Miriam is torn between her personal vendetta against Caligula and her own personal feelings towards him despite his madness and debauched lifestyle of orgies and bloody torture murders.

Did You Know?

Alternate Versions

The British Board of Film Classification granted an 18 certificate to 'Caligola: La storia mai raccontata' for theatrical release in 1984 in a version that had been pre-cut by the distributors to remove 14 minutes of hardcore footage and a bestiality scene featuring a horse, and then cut by a further 8m 42 secs by the BBFC. These included all footage of dildos, Caligula raping a virgin in a forest, a wife and child being slaughtered, a man's tongue being removed and closeups of sex scenes. The Board, however, rejected the same cut version for video 3 years later. See more »

Fans of Black Emanuelle might enjoy this...
26 May 2000 | by drkdrknihtSee all my reviews

If you are a serious film fan or you just like seeing a lot of T&A THEN WATCH OUT BECAUSE THIS MOVIE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU PLUS A WHOLE LOT MORE!!! This movie had some of the most disgusting scenes in it and just to think none of this was exagerated. From what I heard about Caligola he was a pretty insane ruler. The only problem I had about the movie is that there was no real story to it, it was just all about sex, rape, and orgys.

If you rent this movie, rent it strictly for the outrageous nudity and historical info it gives about Caligola's perverted twisted mind. However don't expect to get a good story out of this movie. Oh yeah I might mention Laura Gemser (Black Emanuelle) has a pretty intense love scene with Caligola.
