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

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.
If you are not familiar with our grading system, you need to
explanation, because the grading is not linear. For example, by
our definition, a
C is solid and a C+ is a VERY good movie. There are very few Bs
and As. Based on our descriptive system, this film is a:
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.
