Bruno Mattei's sleazefest!
26 July 2002 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Caesar Neron indulges himself in any known debauchery including incest with his mother when his Empire slowly declines.Bruno Mattei's "Nerone e Poppea" isn't as outrageous as Joe D'Amato's "Caligula-The Untold Story",but still offers some delicious sleaze.There's plenty of nudity and some nicely filmed lesbian sequences to keep fans of Italian sleaze entertained.Rudy Adams is wonderfully over-the-top as a crazy Neron and Patricia Derek is one of the sexiest women ever!There's even a castration scene and some rather nasty torture sequences.The film is long out of print,but you might run into it in a very old video store.A must-see for fans of sleaze!
