It is the only feature film produced by the men's magazine Penthouse. Producer Bob Guccione , the magazine's founder, intended to produce an explicit pornographic film with a feature film narrative and high production values.
He cast Penthouse Pets as extras in unsimulated sex scenes filmed during post-production by himself and Giancarlo Lui.
Guccione hired screenwriter Gore Vidal to draft the film's script and Tinto Brass to direct the film. Brass extensively altered Vidal's original screenplay, leading Vidal to disavow the film.
The final screenplay focuses on the idea that "absolute power corrupts absolutely". However, both Brass and Vidal disagreed with Guccione's use of unsimulated sexual content, which Brass refused to film.
As a result, Brass also disavowed the film. Caligula ' s release was met with legal issues and controversies over its violent and sexual content.
Its uncut form remains banned in several countries. The script was later adapted into a novelization written by William Johnston under the pseudonym William Howard.
In , Penthouse announced that a new Director's Cut of the film was being edited by Alexander Tuschinski , with the approval of Brass's family.
In , another version of the film was announced to be released in the fall of that year, edited by E.
Caligula is the young heir to the throne of his great uncle , the Emperor Tiberius. One morning, a blackbird flies into his room; Caligula considers this a bad omen.
Fearing assassination, Caligula is afraid to leave but his sister and lover Drusilla persuades him to go.
At Capri, Caligula finds that Tiberius has become depraved, showing signs of advanced venereal diseases , and embittered with Rome and politics.
Tiberius enjoys swimming with naked youths and watching degrading sex shows that include deformed people and animals.
Caligula observes with fascination and horror. Tensions rise when Tiberius tries to poison Caligula in front of Gemellus.
Nerva commits suicide and Caligula tries to kill Tiberius but loses his nerve. Proving his loyalty to Caligula, Macro kills Tiberius instead with Gemellus as a witness.
After Tiberius' death and burial, Caligula is proclaimed the new Emperor, then proclaims Drusilla as his equal, to the apparent disgust of the Roman Senate.
Drusilla, fearful of Macro's influence, persuades Caligula to get rid of him. Caligula sets up a mock trial in which Gemellus is intimidated into testifying that Macro murdered Tiberius, then has Macro's wife Ennia banished from Rome.
After Macro is executed in a gruesome public game , Caligula appoints Tiberius' former adviser Longinus as his personal assistant while pronouncing the docile Senator Chaerea as the new head of the Praetorian Guard.
Drusilla tries to find Caligula a wife among the priestesses of the goddess Isis , the cult they secretly practice.
Caligula wants to marry Drusilla, but she insists they cannot marry because she is his sister. Instead, Caligula marries Caesonia , a priestess and notorious courtesan , after she bears him an heir.
Drusilla reluctantly supports their marriage. Meanwhile, despite Caligula's popularity with the masses, the Senate expresses disapproval for what initially seem to be light eccentricities.
Darker aspects of Caligula's personality emerge when he rapes a bride and groom on their wedding day in a minor fit of jealousy and orders Gemellus's execution to provoke a reaction from Drusilla.
After discovering that Caesonia is pregnant, Caligula suffers severe fever. Drusilla nurses him back to health. Just as he fully recovers, Caesonia bears him a daughter, Julia Drusilla.
During the celebration, Drusilla collapses with the same fever he suffered. Soon afterward, Caligula receives another ill omen in the form of a blackbird.
Despite his praying to Isis out of desperation, Drusilla dies from her fever. Initially unable to accept her death, Caligula suffers a nervous breakdown and rampages through the palace, destroying a statue of Isis while clutching Drusilla's body.
Now in a deep depression , Caligula walks the Roman streets disguised as a beggar; he causes a disturbance after watching an amateur performance mocking his relationship with Drusilla.
After a brief stay in a city jail, Caligula proclaims himself a god and becomes determined to destroy the senatorial class, which he has come to loathe.
The new reign he leads becomes a series of humiliations against the foundations of Rome—senators' wives are forced to work in the service of the state as prostitutes, estates are confiscated, the old religion is desecrated and the army is made to embark on a mock invasion of Britain.
Unable to further tolerate his actions, Longinus conspires with Chaerea to assassinate Caligula. Caligula enters his bedroom where a nervous Caesonia awaits him.
Another blackbird appears but only Caesonia is frightened of it. The next morning, after rehearsing an Egyptian play, Caligula and his family are attacked in a coup headed by Chaerea.
Caesonia and Julia are murdered, and Chaerea stabs Caligula in the stomach. With his final breath, the Emperor defiantly whimpers "I live!
Claudius witnesses the entire ordeal and is proclaimed Emperor by the Praetorian Guard. The men's magazine Penthouse had long been involved in film funding, helping invest in films made by other studios, including Chinatown , The Longest Yard and The Day of the Locust , but it had never produced a film on its own.
Guccione was concerned that Vidal's script contained several homosexual sex scenes and only one scene of heterosexual sex, which was between Caligula and his sister Drusilla.
Elaborate sets were built by production designer Danilo Donati, who also designed the film's costumes, jewelry, hair styles, wigs and makeup.
In an interview for Time magazine, Vidal said that in film production, directors were "parasites" and a film's author was its screenwriter; in response, Brass demanded Vidal's removal from the set and Guccione agreed.
Mark , quoted at the film's beginning,  establishing the film's theme that "absolute power corrupts absolutely" .
The film's primary theme is "absolute power corrupts absolutely". Principal photography began in in Rome.
John Gielgud and Helen Mirren were indifferent to Brass; they focused on their own performances. During the film's production, McDowell took members of the production to dinner at an expensive restaurant to celebrate England's win in a football match against the Italian team.
He left the choreographer to pay for the meal, saying he had forgotten to bring enough money.
McDowell offered her a signet ring, a prop from the film. She refused because it belonged to the production company. Brass decided not to focus much on Danilo Donati's elaborate sets, and intentionally kept the Penthouse Pets in the background during sex scenes.
He focused instead on women whom Guccione considered to be unattractive. Filming concluded on 24 December His rough-cut was disassembled afterwards and the film was edited by several editors, changing its tone and structure significantly by removing and re-arranging many scenes, using different takes, a slower editing style and music other than Brass intended.
Guccione and Lui "hired a skeleton crew, snuck back into the studios at night, raided the prop room"  and shot hardcore sex scenes to edit into the film.
Even though there were a number of editors on the film, their names were not credited. Instead, the credit "Editing by the Production" is given during the opening credits.
Because the film was intended for release in English and much of the dialogue was recorded in Italian, the film's dialogue had to be dubbed.
The film was scored by Bruno Nicolai under the name Paul Clemente. In the United States, Guccione refused to submit Caligula to the MPAA because he did not want the film to receive a rating—even X —which he considered to be "demeaning".
Rather than leasing prints to exhibitors, the distributor rented theaters that specialized in foreign and art films for the purpose of screening Caligula exclusively  in order to keep the film out of theaters that showed pornographic films.
The script was adapted into a novelization written by William Johnston under the pseudonym William Howard. In , when Guccione tried to import the film's footage into the U.
Federal officials did not declare the film to be obscene. In Boston , authorities seized the film. Atlanta prosecutors threatened legal action if the film was to be screened in the city, but experts testified in court on behalf of the film, and Atlanta, too, declared that the film was not obscene.
The film was banned in Australia, where it continues to be banned in its uncut form as of [update]. On appeal, court vacated the award, ruling that punitive damages were not allowed by the law governing the case.
Caligula received generally negative reviews. Ebert wrote, "In the two hours of this film that I saw, there were no scenes of joy, natural pleasure, or good sensual cheer.
There was, instead, a nauseating excursion into base and sad fantasies. Caligula continued to garner negative reception long after its release.
The site's critical consensus reads, "Endlessly perverse and indulgent, Caligula throws in hardcore sex every time the plot threatens to get interesting.
Writers for The Hamilton Spectator and St. Louis Post-Dispatch said Caligula was one of the worst films they'd seen.
