DVD News: Baba Yaga

"The S&M Classic Restored, Re-graded, Re-edited and Re-Imagined"

The line between perverted dreams and fevered reality are torn apart as a beautiful witch (Carrol Baker) gets her sapphic claws into a beautiful young photographer in this rampant adaptation of the classic Guido Crepax comic-book. Now 35 years after original release director Corrado Farina has re-edited his film to bring us for the first time his vision as he would really have liked it seen. Restored, Re-graded, re-edited and re-imagined this is Baba Yaga: Reloaded!

When the beautiful Vallentia spurns the advances of the enigmatic witch, a curse is put on her camera and all those who pose for her are damned. Pursued by the sensuous seduction of Baba Yaga at every turn, she must either submit to her S&M desires or confront the repressed lesbian feelings buried deep within. Carnal lust explodes as she must choose between external decadence and staid reality, with her very soul at stake as witchcraft casts its spell.

Combining the haunting atmosphere of Polanski with the sexual styling of Argento on Crystal Meth, it's all here: gorgeous lesbians, Nazi fantasies and even sinister sewing machines! Baba Yaga is 70's Euro-sleaze at its very best, showcasing stunning cinematography and is a must for everyone let down by the distinctly prudish Barbarella when it comes to erotic Euro-comics.

Due April 27th from Shameless Films

This is cool - all I've got is a cheesy Dutch VHS tape under the title "Black Magic". This one was part of that 'Import a US star to be a name in your soft-core porn film' genre, Carol Baker in this case and many others or Farley Granger in a few, but Baba Yaga had so much more - if nothing else, a nice intro with a Crepax/Valentina touch.
