If you want a turn-on, turn-off Caligula. Stay home and read Robert Graves' I, Claudius, it's much sexier.

More infamous for its widespread ineptitude than for its artistic innovation... [Blu-ray]
April 10, 2008
Sublimely ridiculous thesp-filled porno-togarama.

Such established names as John Gielgud and Peter O'Toole will have to be seen to be believed.
December 8, 2007
Unpleasantly violent, often dull, and only intermittently sexy.

Caligula is sickening, utterly worthless, shameful trash. If it is not the worst film I have ever seen, that makes it all the more shameful: People with talent allowed themselves to participate in this travesty.

It ended up almost as infamous and notorious as its subject... and that's not a compliment.

I suppose certain college fraternities could make screening it part of their hazing rituals.

Simply a curiosity, a laughable relic of a failed effort to bring explicit sex movies to the masses.

Despite the movie, the highlight of this three-disc set is the often hilarious commentary.

Excess for excess sake, or just bad taste: Caligula is a messy, bloody film that fails on any level, even as porn and camp.

All in all it's a dreary shambles.

Direo de arte e figurinos corretos; atuaes intensas e uma direo corajosa. Pena que o roteiro pouco coeso comprometa estes esforos.

Caligula turns the Julian dynasty's most violent chapter into a sleazy snoozefest. Even the Penthouse Pets look pained to be decorating this historic bomb.
September 15, 2002
professes to be an honest depiction of ancient Roman excesses, but it succeeds only in being alternately boring and offensive

Hokey doesn't even begin to describe it.

For sheer camp RBI, this Tinto Brass-Bob Guccione freak is the World Series played, won, and paraded.
January 1, 2000
Guccione, in his pursuit of historical accuracy has instead made a film that is such a painstaking, arduous task to watch in its entirety that I doubt anyone can sit through an hour of it without irreversible psychological damage.
