Count Yorga, Vampire (1970/American International/Orion/MGM/Twilight Time Limited Edition Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Film: C+

PLEASE NOTE: This Blu-ray is now only available from our friends at Twilight Time, is limited to only 3,000 copies and can be ordered while supplies last from the link below.

A contemporary '70s fang flick made during a drought of good Hammer Dracula films and perhaps an inspiration to Hammer's own Dracula AD 1972, comes the low budget Count Yorga, Vampire 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!

Centuries 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.

The 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.

Extras include:

Isolated Score Track

Audio Commentary with Film Historians David Del Valle and Tim Sullivan

My Dinner with Yorga: The Robert Quarry Rue Morgue Interview, a Reading by David Del Valle and Tim Sullivan

Fangirl Radio Tribute to Robert Quarry with Tim Sullivan

Still Gallery: The MGM Archives

Still Gallery: The Tim Sullivan Archives

Original Theatrical Trailer

Also 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.

If you're a classic Vampire fan and are into some of the Hammer films, you may like this slightly offbeat comedy/horror outing. It has some very memorable sequences and a great performance by Robert Quarry. Don't miss this incredible release!
