| Need this film!
As a very young kid in the late 70's, I remember sneaking views of this classic flick on the 'adult' cable channels of the time. I was always into film even very young, and this one I knew was different. I thought the combination of the photography, music, direction, and locales made this a very exotic film. And of course, Olivia Pascal looked great. I would love to get this on video, even the cut cable version, if anyone has it, please email me. A DVD release would be great.

Addition - it is now May 2015, almost 14 years since I wrote the above review. I'm glad to say today that "Vanessa" has indeed been on DVD for a while, and a spectacular release it is. Great picture, great sound and amazing extras like interviews and even home movies during shooting!

I'm pushing 50 and I still love this film as much as I did when I first saw it, maybe in 1978 or '79 on cable. I'm not saying it is going to win awards. I just simply love everything this film has to offer - the beauty, the haunting music, the touch of black magic, the characters, and of course, Vanessa/Olivia Pascal, who is nothing short of absolutely stunning here.

Of course there is a rampant sexual fever throughout, and the tension between Vanessa and Jackie builds to a fantastic climax, no pun intended. All the actors look like they are having a good time, really getting into their roles.

What can I say, I just love this flick. Pick up the amazing DVD release before it becomes unavailable.
