Trivia:
American International Pictures had planned to revive Count Yorga as an adversary for the abominable Dr. Phibes in the film "Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972)" (1972). While this plan was eventually dropped actor Robert Quarry (who plays Count Yorga) did appear in the film as Darrus Biederbeck. He also went on to costar with Vincent Price and Peter Cushing in "Madhouse" (1974).See more »

Another Terrific Vampire Flick from the Sexy 70's, 28 January 2000
Author: augiedog (ernspin@aol.com) from Philadelphia PA

Once again, as in Vampire Lovers, the traditionally based vampire legend comes back from the grave containing the permissive sexual standards of the times. The end result is Count Yorga, Vampire, a wonderfully fast-moving, edge of your seat scare ride that keeps you taunt until the shocking end. We first meet Count Yorga at a seance he holds for a group of friends, one of which has just lost her mother. During the seance, Count Yorga builds a strong bond between Donna, the grieving daughter, and himself. Everyone at the seance agrees that the Count is refined, well-mannered, and eloquent. We soon find out that Count Yorga is one of the most blood-thirsty and ruthless vampires we've seen on screen in years. He eliminates each of the friends one by one until it's up to two remaining friends to become reluctant vampire hunters to save Donna from an existence of living death. Count Yorga Vampire was made on a very small budget. However, nothing was spared as far as creativity and skill. Robert Quarry makes your blood run cold as the modern day Count Dracula, and Roger Perry is driven and pretty funny as Dr. Hayes, the modern day Dr. Van Helsing. This genuinely frightening movie contains scenes that you won't forget easily. There was a sequel called Return of Count Yorga, but after seeing this movie, you'll wish for a remake of this one instead of a pretty mediocre sequel.
