Movie Quote(s):
  • Count Yorga: Doctor Hayes, what an unexpected surprise. Dr. James Hayes: Yes, so much so that I almost had a massive coronory.
  • Narrator: A vampire, in ancient belief, was a malignant spirit who when the earth lost its sunlight rose nightly from its dark grave to suck blood from the throats of the living. Its powers were many. It could see in the dark, which was no small ability in a world half-veiled from light. Its hypnotic skills baffled the domain of science. It was of a cunning more than mortal, for its cunning was a growth of ages, since it could not die by the mere passing of time. It had to have been by a wooden stake driven deep into its heart, or exposure to the rays of the sun, which would instantly decompose its body into a miasma of putrid decay. The believers of this superstition referred to vampires as the living dead. I seem to be making use of the past tense. Perhaps the present would be more precise, for it stands to reason that if one is superstitious, even on a small, seemingly insignificant level, one must be vulnerable to all superstitions, conceivably even those of vampires.
  • Narrator: Superstition? [laughs maniacally]
Movie Trivia:
  • The movie was originally conceived as a low-budget soft-core porno movie. At this stage the title was "The Loves of Count Iorga, Vampire!" but at some stage the decision was taken to film it as a straight horror film. The title was changed accordingly to the less erotic "Count Yorga, Vampire!" which explains the poor animation of the phrase "Count Yorga" in the title (as it now appears on-screen).
  • American International Pictures had planned at one stage to revive Count Yorga as an adversary for the abominable Dr. Phibes in the film Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972). This plan was eventually dropped however actor Robert Quarry (who plays Count Yorga) did appear in the film as Darius Biederbeck.
