Review From The Author:

Is taking an artistic risk or any kind of risk for that matter always a good thing? Gustav Olifanz embraces artistic destruction with both arms and takes a big, ego-driven risk with his film Cultus Maximus and it leads to one calamity after another, quite possibly making it the greatest disaster film of all time.

There is a lot more to Cultus Maximus than meets the eye—or maybe I should say the Eye of Horus in this particular case. A massive amount of research was involved.
