Synopsis:
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 the first release, director Corrado Farina has re-edited his film to bring us for the first time his vision as how it should originally have been seen. When the beautiful Valentina 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 and carnal lust or confront the repressed lesbian feelings buried deep within. 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.

Few Thrills - Baba Yaga review by KM

Spoiler Alert
18/10/2017

Possibly more linear than a lot of giallo movies but Baba Yaga is low on excitement. It doesn't even function well as a document of Milan in the early '70s although it briefly features a decrepit industrial area early on.
