Watch Count Yorga, Vampire
- 1 hr 32 min
Count Yorga is a 1970 horror film about a modern-day Bulgarian vampire who lives in a Los Angeles mansion and changes local females into vampires by lulling them into a semi-conscious state. The film was written and directed by Bob Kelljan. The film opens with a young woman named Donna (Donna Anders) who is attempting to contact her recently deceased mother at a séance party. After the party, psychic medium Count Yorga (Robert Quarry) is offered a ride home by attendees Paul (Michael Murphy) and Erica (Judith Lang). After dropping him off, their van will not start, so they are forced to camp out inside the van. As they make love in the van, Count Yorga attacks and bites Erica; Paul, however doesn't remember the attack the next morning. After relaying the events of the previous night's attack to his friend Michael (Michael MacCready), Paul realizes that Erica's bite is far more serious than anticipated. Dr. James Hays (Roger Perry) examines Erica's wound, and after a series of bizarre occurrences, she is given a blood transfusion. Paul, Michael and Dr. Hays are somewhat convinced that Erica has been bitten by a vampire. Paul suspects that Count Yorga is the culprit. As Paul sleeps upstairs, Count Yorga comes to the house and kidnaps Erica. Paul awakens and tells Michael he is going to Yorga's mansion to find her. Paul is quickly killed by Yorga, however. Dr. Hays, Michael, and Donna go to the mansion to find Paul and Erica. Yorga and his servant Brudah (Edward Walsh) put off the trio as they attempt to gain information about the whereabouts of Paul and Erica. They soon find that their misguided attempts to storm Yorga's castle will probably result in their demise. Yorga, with the help of Erica and Donna (who he also bites), kills both Dr. Hays and Michael.
