Count Yorga, Vampire

This would mark the first feature length film from Bob Kelljan who would go on to make another Yorga as well as the Blacula sequel and direct episodes for many of our childhood faves such as CHARLIE'S ANGELS or STARSKY AND HUTCH. This is important to note as when you watch COUNT YORGA, VAMPIRE it will come across as being made for television. This has more to do with his directing style than the actual budget. For some reason most people are under the impression this is a comedy, it isn't, sure, there are a few laughable moments principally due to Robert Quarry's witty dialogue but the film is played straight. Rather poor death scene for the Count at the end but such is life in thses sorts of films. For rapid vamp heads only.
