Gladiator Eroticus


by Tuna

Gladiator Eroticus is a Seduction Cinema soft-core effort that I somehow missed when it was first released.

In this one, Darian Caine is the lead as Erotica, the bravest general in the Roman army, and the choice of emperor Gluteus Maximus to succeed him over his worthless son, Dickus Minimus. Meanwhile, Minimus is devoting all his waking efforts into seducing his sister, Clitoris (Misty Mundae). After a battle, Dickus flashes dad, and dad laughs so hard he dies of a heart attack. Erotica is still out "licking" the barbarians when the empoeror dies, and by the time she returns, Dickus is already emperor, so she heads off to her native Lesbianis, only to find it being torn down for a shopping mall or something.

Erotica is captured by barbarian lesbians, and made to fight as a gladiator. The goals of the battle are somewhat different, however, as you use your sword to gain an advantage, grab a tit, then have a girl/girl scene. So much for the preliminaries. Later, we have girl/girl/girl/girl/girl scenes.

I probably shouldn't forget Dickus' cultural contribution to Rome, the Vomitorium.

I can't disagree with the low IMDb rating, but this was of some historical importance for Seduction in that it defined their sub-genre of lesbian spoofs  and led of course to their genre masterpieces, Playmate of the Apes and Lord of the G-String. I suppose some will find a chuckle or two here, and it's interesting to see a point in history when Misty Mundae was not the star of Seduction's films. I have seen far too many Seduction Cinema DVDs, and from several special features I had formed the impression that I would very much enjoy Darian Caine in a larger role, so it was nice to see her given a chance.



Our Grade:

The story is not brilliant, and the transfer quality could be better, but there's lots of skin, and it doesn't try for even a moment to take itself seriously, so it meets the minimum requirements for a skin-flick.

* an interview with Misty Mundae
