Free Blu-ray Giveaway: The Unrated CALIGULA

By at February 8, 2009 | 12:32 am | Print

Caligula Blu-ray Box ArtTHIS CONTEST HAS ENDED. We can only accept entries posted by the deadline so if you’re eligible, best of luck! We’ll select a randon winner soon.

Bob Guccione will always be known as the guy behind Penthouse Magazine. But in the late 1970s, the guy clearly had filmmaking delusions. That’s when he took his bloated ego and inflated genitalia, and attempted to make an epic Roman emperor film. That movie is Caligula, new on Blu-ray, and it holds an infamous place in movie history. I remember seeing it on cable at about age 11, and it rattled me. It’s got hardcore orgy sex, gratuitous violence… ah, hell it has gratuitous everything. But there’s more to it than that. And you can
win a Blu-ray copy of the unrated Caligula: The Imperial Edition right here at Meet In the Lobby.

For a film with such a trashy legend, the cast is remarkable: Malcolm McDowell, John Gielgud, Peter O’Toole, Helen Mirren. Perhaps they were attracted to Gore Vidal’s original screenplay, although Vidal tried to distance himself from the movie and, word is, ended up suing Guccione. Vidal’s credit on the disc reads “Adapted from an original screenplay by…” And Guccione is listed as the co-director and co-photography on “additional scenes.” Gulp.

Here’s the real fun part: The Caligula disc has gobs of behind-the-scenes extras, a treat for a movie with such controversial lore (and freewheeling Roman sex). McDowell and Mirren offer new, full-length commentary (slagging Guccione), and there’s an entire disc of extras including two documentaries about the film, Vidal’s original screenplay on DVD-ROM, an interview with original director Tinto Brass and more.

To win Caligula on Blu-ray, just enter by leaving a comment to this post saying you’d like to win the disc. We’ll choose one entrant at random as the winner. All entries posted by Friday, February 13 at 5pm ET will be accepted. Good luck!
