The line between perverted dreams and fevered reality are torn apart as a beautiful witch (Carroll Baker, 'Baby Doll') gets her sapphic claws into a beautiful young photographer in this rampant adaptation of the classic Guido Crepax comic-book.
When the beautiful Valentina spurns the advances of an enigmatic witch called Baba Yaga, 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, 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.
Now 35 years after original release director Corrado Farina re-edited his film exclusively for UK distributor Shameless, re-inserting footage cut by both the producers and censors, 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: The Final Cut.
