Count Yorga, Vampire

1970 / d. Bob Kelljan
Kitschy 70’s entry into the vampire genre, COUNT YORGA is a spirited romp that is good enough for an evening’s entertainment. The plot is nothing in the way of new: mysterious Count Yorga arrives from his European home and begins to suck his way through a group of friends in present-day California. Originally planned to be a porno, YORGA contains at least one softcore intercourse scene as well as insinuated lesbianism for all you folks looking for a different kind of stiff. The blood flows freely enough, with some lovely neck bitings and a messy staking here and there to liven up some of the duller moments. Good ol’ vampire fun for lovers of the undead. Sequel: THE RETURN OF COUNT YORGA. (JC)
