Caligula (David Brandon), the new emperor of Rome, is a sick bastard: He likes to torture and kill even those close to him, he likes to fuck the wives of his friends, his own sisters and relatives, and even little kids, he likes to turn the Vestal Virgins into prostitutes to entertain the guests at his orgies, and every now and again, he likes to do a little rape as well. Then though he goes one step too far when he rapes and then kills Christian girl Livia (Fabiola Toledo), because Livia's best friend is Miriam (Laura Gemser), a Nubian priestess who will stop at nothing to get her revenge, she even goes so far as to sacrifice her own virginity and become a whore, just to get close to Caligula - and she succeeds too, because at one of his orgies she catches his eye, and soon they spend a night of sin together.

Then though, the unexpected happens: Miriam and Caligula actually fall in love, and Miriam even goes so far as to betray those who she's in league with and kill Caligula's would-be assassin with her own hands to save the emperor.

Caligula however is quite mad, and after weeks and weeks of being in love, his mind snaps and in a fit of rage, he brutally stabs Miriam to death for no reason at all - and now his underlings are really shocked and decide they have to do away with Caligula.

In the end, on a beach, all those serving under Caligula gather for an execution and confront him, and the man who actually shoots the emperor dead with an arrow is Ulmar (Sasha D'Arc), his own trusted bodyguard.

A film about Caligula, done by Joe D'Amato - well, this obviously is not some kind of a history lesson but rather a sleazefest made to cash in on Tinto Brass' notorious art/porn-blend Caligula from 1979. D'Amato however does away with the art and fills the story with scene after scene of gratuitous nudity and (in its uncut form) hardcore sex (Laura Gemser not performing any hardcore scenes in case you were wondering), a little bit of sensationalistic decadence (which of course is in a way true to historical facts) and some violence, plus a scene of a woman masturbating a horse. The outcome is your typical Joe D'Amato piece of sleaze, maybe technically on a higher level than some of his other films but not as entertaining and as funny (if you can laugh about things like this) as his best films, but entertaining enough if you know what you're in for ...
