Yes, yes--doubtless you're thinking that if you haven't seen the original Count Yorga, Vampire you'll be completely lost. Turns out it's surprisingly easy to catch up! Robert Quarry reprises his role as Yorga, this time taking up residence by the Westwood orphanage. Mariette Hartley plays the lovely Cynthia, a kindhearted orphanage worker who unknowingly wins Yorga's heart. This might seem more special if Yorga weren't already being followed around by a bevy of nightgown-clad vampire girlfriends, but there you go. After Cynthia is captured and entranced by Yorga, her fiancée leads the chase to find her (helped by a few skeptical but dogged policemen--watch for a deeply embarrassed and heavily made-up Craig T. Nelson as one of the detectives). Quarry does his best to make Yorga a debonair vampire in the Dracula tradition, but is unfortunately hindered by Yorga's fondness for lounge-singer dinner jackets and his tendency to lunge at victims with both arms thrust straight out like a Scooby-Doo character. Yorga is mysterious, though--he is able to walk the land even during bright day-for-night sequences, for example, and there is also a fascinating moment in which he has apparently frightened a pod of humpback whales. This video edition includes the original theatrical trailer, which describes The Return of Count Yorga as "the most horrifying love story ever filmed." I could not agree more. --Ali Davis

This sequel to Count Yorga Vampire is 10 times better then the original. l originaly saw this movie when l was 10 on tv and seeing it today still has the impact on me of scaring me as it did back then. The Scene that gets me the most is where the wind is blowing and a horde of female vampires are heading towards the house for their next victims. There is a bit more gore in this one. l would recomend this movie to all horror fans and those who like to see a horror movie now and then. l would rate this movie a ten.l hope a DVD release is not far behind

"The Return of Count Yorga" is better than the original, but then how hard could that be? The main thing you get in this movie is the Count's bevy of vampire beauties decked out in flowing nightgowns. The eroticism in this film is superior to what you find in the Hammer films, which means this one pretty much tops the list. Robert Quarry is okay as Yorga; obviously there is an attempt to go back to Bela Lugosi instead of the Christopher Lee ferral animal approach. You also get a young Mariette Hartley, which is always a good thing as well.

Though the original movie leaves Count Yorga staked and turned to dust, he is back in this movie and up to his old tricks. How he got back is never explained, nor the return of his sidekick, or even his killed-in-the-original chief hunter. I actually prefer this lack of explanation to some silly alternative.
Yorga has moved to San Francisco, to a mansion next to an orphanage, which provides him with both adult and child prey. He is particularly attracted to Cynthia, played by Mariette Hartley. In true romantic fashion, he decides to win her by killing her family and kidnaping and hypnotizing her.
In many ways similar to the original movie in style, this film does have a couple creepy moments, in particular when Cynthia wanders through the mansion and is tormented by voices. Otherwise, this is essentially a remake of the original in structure, though more campy in style. I was particulary amused by Yorga's preferred method of attack: a hissing, slow-motion run at his victim.
As a bonus, this movie features one of Craig T. Nelson's earliest roles, but I don't know if that will really draw many watchers outside of the most avid Coach fans. For others, I can say that if you liked the original, you will like this one; if given a choice of only one to watch, choose this one. You will not be missing anything by skipping the first one.

I own both of these movies and I would have to say that the Return of Count Yorga is much better than the first movie. There are more vampires, a bit more eerie and some pretty good action. For a cheap movie like this one is...it's not all that boring.
The only thing that I really hate about this movie compared to movies nowadays is that vampires died pretty easily to humans in the past..especially the 70's where there were vampire movies galore...and this is one of them. Overall, for a movie 30 years ago, I'll give this one 4 stars. This movie is better than some of Christopher Lee's Dracula movies (Dracula A.D 1972 and the Satanic Rites of Dracula...BOMBS!!).

Robert Quarry again stars as the evil modern day vampire Count Yorga. This sequel is actually better than the original film. Yorga stalks new prey at a school for abandoned children. The scene where Yorga's brides rise from the dead is as eerie as it gets. Highly recommended video terror.

I feel that this has a lot going for it. I like the count played very well by Robert Quarry. I well remember seeing this for the first time in the cinema and really been scared by his version of the count. His movements, his expressions are perfect. He played this same role in two versions. I have not seen the role played so well by any one else so far. He says it all by his eye movement and his cunning approach. The action is perfect, there is a lot of suspence in both films. Particularly in the first version, where two victims are in a van which is broken down on an old muddy road, and the count stalks and waits for his opportunity. The night scenes are perfect and the feeling is very scary and very errie at times. The narration at the start is also setting up the mood and texture very well for an audience. The ending in both films are really very well done with lots of twists.

If you loved "Count Yorga, Vampire", be sure to get a copy of the follow-up, "Return of Count Yorga". Although it also is a lower budget horror flick it has some truly great moments. The very good perfomance of a hearing-impaired teacher as well as her character's treatment by the authorities in the film also deserves mention. The deaf character in the movie is not considered a reliable witness by the police when reporting the brutal murder of her friends at the hands of the vampires. Craig T. Nelson is very young and handsome playing one of the cops in an early role. He fails to understand how a series of dissapearances could be linked to the vampire played once again (very well!) by Robert Quarry. Robert Quarry is both suave and chilling. As the film progresses they both get the point, except Nelson gets two of them!! Leave the lights on and don't forget the popcorn!
