By the Gods!

Agrippina (Fanny Magier) and Nero (Piotr Stanislas) in a scene from NERO AND POPPEA - AN ORGY OF POWER (1982).

I already reviewed this movie so I won't review it again. Or maybe I should? Because I finally got a copy with all the cut scenes re-edited into the most complete version yet. I watched this complete version along side the most complete version I had in my collection and I have to say that there were a lot of scenes removed. Some of them are sorta disturbing. Probably the ne plus ultra orgiastic Sex and Sandals movie of the 1970s/80s. It even out 'shocks' CALIGULA (1979) or CALIGULA - THE UNTOLD STORY (1982), which has plenty of disturbing scenes in that one. But this one is the peak. Thanks to Bruno Mattei.

As in many such movies, scenes from old PEPLUM movies were edited with the new raunchy stuff. I always enjoy watching these scenes. There are some funny scenes in it. PEPLUM actor Mario Novelli is credited in it but I can't find him anywhere. I've watched this movie a dozen times.
