'Baba Yaga' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Oct 11, 2011 at 10:30 AM PDT by

Corrado Farina's 1973 cult classic will put a sleazy curse on Blu-ray in February.

In an early announcement to retailers, Blue Underground will bring 'Baba Yaga' to Blu-ray on February 28.

Legendary sex symbol Carroll Baker ('Baby Doll,' 'The Sweet Body of Deborah') stars as a mysterious sorceress with an undying hunger for sensual ecstasy and unspeakable torture. But when she casts a spell over a beautiful young fashion photographer (the gorgeous Isabelle De Funes), Milan's most luscious models are sucked into a nightmare world of lesbian seduction and shocking sadism. Are these carnal crimes the result of one woman's forbidden fantasies or is this the depraved curse of the devil witch known as 'Baba Yaga'?

George Eastman ('The Grim Reaper') co-stars in this provocative EuroShocker (also know as 'Devil Witch' and 'Kiss Me Kill Me') written and directed by Corrado Farina and based on the notorious S&M comic Valentina by Guido Crepax. Blue Underground is now proud to present 'Baba Yaga' restored from pristine vault materials and packed with eye-popping Extras, including never-before-seen erotic outtakes from the Italian Censor's archives as well as the director's own private collection.

Specs and supplements are still forthcoming, and suggested list price for the Blu-ray will likely be $34.98.
