Titus Andronicus - William Shakespeare Tereus’ rape of Philomela, and her revenge with her sister Procne, inspire this fictionalized bloodbath set in Roman times. Titus, the dutiful and loyal soldier of Rome, falls to the conspiracies of the new Goth queen and Aaron, the Moor. The horrors let loose upon his daughter Livinia are vicious and brutal, but the mad, avenging horrors Titus unleashes make this the B-movie slasher flick of Shakespeare’s time.
