Baba Yaga

Baba Yaga

Directed by Corrado Farina

In swinging ‘70s Milan, a female photographer named Valentina falls under the spell of a witch named Baba Yaga. But if that name calls to mind a cackling crone, think again. As played by legendary sex symbol Carroll Baker (BABY DOLL), this Baba Yaga is a stylish sapphic sorceress with a taste for S&M, and she’ll stop at nothing to make Valentina her latest plaything. Based on Italian graphic novelist Guido Crepax’s kinky comix, this trippy terror tale is a must for fans of ‘60s and ‘70s erotic Euro-horror titles like SUCCUBUS, VAMPYROS LESBOS and L PRISONNIERE.

In swinging ‘70s Milan, a female photographer falls under the spell of a sexy sorceress.

It did not connect with me. Looked very stylish, and if I can find the original graphic novel somewhere in my collection of comics, perhaps I will read it and then watch this movie again. Biggest drawback was the English dub, which reliably antagonizes me. It's like being talked-down-to by some dolts who fantasize their own superiority. I am sure the companies meant well, that handled the dubbing , but they always succeed in infuriating me.

Best left ignored. Only the final three minutes or so really qualify as "horror".

Intriguing. Its strengths were in the editing, design, cinematography. Dialog wasn't strong enough to survive the dubbing. Story and acting were so so. I could have done without the racist banter and the sex doesn't carry the film.

Not the most interesting plot, but the ultra stylin’, groovy early 70’s Euro aesthetic was pretty awesome, right down to Valentina’s clear plastic telephone. Worth a look for its look.
