Baba Yaga: The Final Cut (R2) in April
Shameless Screen Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of Baba Yaga: The Final Cut on 27th April 2009 priced at £15.99 RRP. The line between perverted dreams and fevered reality are torn apart as a beautiful witch (Carroll 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 exclusively for 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, Baba Yaga: The Final Cut is presented remastered in 1.85:1 with choices of either English or Italian 2.0 sound with optional English subtitles.
Extra features are headed up with an introduction to the film by Corrado Farina plus an all-new in-depth interview. Also included on the disc are two Corrado Farina documentaries, ‘Freud A Fumetti' (Farina explores the comic artwork of Crepax) and the never before seen ‘Fummettophobia' (translates as ‘Comics-Phobia'), a Shameless Fact Track by The Wilson Bros, a collector's photo gallery and a Shameless original trailer gallery which includes a teaser for the upcoming release of Luigi Bazzoni's Footprints.
