contemporary '70s fang flick made during a drought of good Hammer
films and perhaps an inspiration to Hammer's own Dracula
comes the low budget Count
starring the very fang-tastic Robert Quarry in the starring role.
This could possibly be one of the film modern day set Vampire films,
which makes it interesting on top of a kind of hip vibe and some
moments of great gore, even with its newly instated PG-13 rating, the
film offers up some frights!
old Count Yorga (Robert Quarry) is a vampire that is given a ride to
his gloomy mansion in the woods by Paul (Michael Murphy) and Donna
(Judith Lang) in their Volkswagen van. On the way out of the woods,
the vehicle becomes stuck in the mud, but the duo refuses to return
to the creepy house. After the two make love, Donna is bitten by the
Count. Paul becomes suspicious when she starts to devour cats and a
seance reveals some uneasy feelings about the Count. Donna is
examined by Dr. Hayes (Roger Perry), and the dedicated physician
brings wooden stakes to the Volkswagen. While the demented demon
looks on and shrieks with delight, a bevy of vampire beauties eats
the doctor alive after he falls into the Count's trap.
film looks incredible on Blu-ray with a lush 1080p high definition
transfer and 1.85:1 widescreen aspect ratio paired with a crystal
clear English 1.0 DTS-HD MA track, the film looks and sounds better
than every on this Blu-ray disc. Also on the disc are English SDH
subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.

included is a reversible cover and a great linear book with notes, a
Julie Kirgo essay and photographs on the production of the film,
which is a great compliment to the release.

you may like this slightly offbeat comedy/horror outing. It has some
very memorable sequences and a great performance by Robert Quarry.
