Description The rise and fall of the notorious Roman Emperor Caligula, showing the violent methods that he employs to gain the throne, and the subsequent insanity of his reign - he gives his horse political office and humiliates and executes anyone who even slightly displeases him. He also sleeps with his sister, organises elaborate orgies and embarks on a fruitless invasion of Britain before meeting an appropriate end. There are various versions of the film, ranging from the heavily truncated 90-minute version to the legendary 160-minute hardcore version which leaves nothing to the imagination (though the hardcore scenes were inserted later and do not involve the main cast members).

    Film could be vastly improved by replacing the musical score with Nino Rota's score for "8-½."

    I viewed this a while back and said to myself this was a masterpiece in film. Good musical score: dance of the knights.

    @FastJohnnyNardGard i was only saying that most people think this is the most twisted movie ever and i thought Tokyo Gore police was more twisted. i've never heard of Satyricon, i just checked out the trailer. it looks really cool thanks for the suggestion, i will check it out, it does look more similar to Caligula and more twisted. give me some other recommendations if you like. :)
  • FastJohnnyNardGard 2012-01-23 09:58:35
    @joeeeeeeeeeeeee66666 It's not really comparable dude. I mean, I guess I agree in the sense that I did also like Tokyo Gore Police, but a better recommendation for people who liked this film would probably be something like Satyricon.
  • Chainless Yo 2012-01-21 13:37:53
    if you like this, try Tokyo Gore Police, it's even crazier!

    "Password." "Scrotum." "So be it." (kills Caligula) This is a horrible film (everyone who starred in it hated it, and Tinto Brass, the director, disowned it), and yet there are so many hilarious scenes. Plus the music is good.
