[cert 18, 162 mins]
Titus Andronicus returns to Rome from a victorious war with the Goths but Saturninus is proclaimed emperor in exchange for his pledge to marry Titus’ daughter, Lavina. Among Titus’ captives are the Goth Queen Tamora, her warlike sons, and her degenerative lover, Aaron. A vicious and bloody campaign of revenge attacks follow and the once mighty Titus appears to crumble under the pressure of torture, dismemberment, and general violation and wholesale slaughter.
