RESTORED! REJUVENATED! REBORN! By the end of the 1960s the boom in Old World gothic horror had begun to wane in the face of present day terrors like the Vietnam war. In response, American filmmakers brought horror out of the past and into the present, and the classic movie monsters packed their bags and headed for the New World. Count Yorga, Vampire was among the first to successfully transpose the classic vampire, cloak and all, to a modern day setting as the Count - played unforgettably by Robert Quarry - arrives in the United States and settles in a Southern California mansion with his mysterious "brides". A drive-in favourite from the moment it was released, a sequel soon followed. The Return of Count Yorga ups the ante and sees the sardonic Count on the streets of San Francisco, his sights set on an orphanage as a potential source of sustenance. Director Bob Kelljan (Scream Blacula Scream) delivers a one-two punch of classic cult cinema mixing chills, thrills, style, and suspense with a knowing wit that revels in the genre trappings. Presented in all new restorations by Arrow Films from new scans of the original camera negative, The Count Yorga Collection is a full blooded feast to die for!

Press Quotes

Quarry stands out in a performance that, like the movie, stays a half-inch this side of camp.

     —Mark Bourne, DVD Journal

The Count Yorga films remain irresistibly fun and spooky entries in the Dracula myth

     —Christopher Machell, Cinevue

The two Yorga titles are notable for being among the best early attempts at transferring the vampire theme into a (then-contemporary) 20th Century setting.

     —Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique

The Return of Count Yorga is one the creepiest vampire films I've ever seen.

     —Christopher Alexander, Alexander on Film

The Return of Count Yorga is perhaps the first humanistic (one almost says humanitarian) vampire movie - the story of the exquisite pain of love which stirs even within the breast of he who men call monster

     —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
