* HolyBurnsEvil: Naturally crosses are used as a weakness against vampire in this film. However Yorga seems more annoyed when Hayes thrusts a cross at him, apparently still feeling it's effects but having built up a bit immunity to it that it doesn't scare him. His brides however, being modern day vampires, are quite as powerful. When Micheal uses a cross against then when they try to chase both Donna and him down some stairs, they instantly cower back from the symbol. Throwing up their arms to shield themselves and even hiding behind the other to try and avoid it.

** Near the end, Yorga hypnotizes Donna to sabatoge Micheal's alarm clock before having her come to his manor. Micheal and Hayes soon awaken, find out what happened but proceed anyway despite knowing the disadvantage. Hayes splits up to distract Yorga to give Micheal time to find Donna. However Yorga humors Hayes, leads him into his throne room to showcase Erica as his newest addition to his brides, then proceeds to mess with him till his brides awaken and feed on Hayes.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: At the party at the beginning of the second movie. Ellen, Cynthia's sister, mentions how cool it would be if vampires were real. [[spoiler: A few scenes later, Yorga's brides raid her house, kill her parents, kidnap her sister and, oh yeah, turn her into a vampire herself where she promptly helps kill her boyfriend.]]

* LuredIntoATrap: Three cases:
** After Erica is taken by Yorga. Her boyfriend, Paul, tries to go rescue her despite ''knowing'' that Yorga is a vampire, the (confirmed) probability that Erica is beyond saving and he's going ''at night''. Not surprising, Yorga is waiting for him and easily kills him.
** Near the end, Yorga hypnotizes Donna to sabatoge Micheal's alarm clock before having her come to his manor. Micheal and Hayes soon awaken, find out what happened but proceed anyway despite knowing the disadvantage. Hayes splits up to distract Yorga to give Micheal time to find Donna. However Yorga humors Hayes, leads him into his throne room to showcase Erica as his newest addition to his brides, then proceeds to mess with him till his brides awaken and feed on Hayes.
** And lastly, when Micheal finally reaches the throne room, he finds he was too late and Hayes dying on the floor. Hayes tells him where Donna is before passing on. But just as he does, a door to the room opens and the vamped Erica along with a red-haired bride rush into the room to kill him. Unlike the last two example however, Micheal manages to foil this attempt.

If it all sounds familiar, that's because it is essentially a 70's modern day take of ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'', though Yorga was much more genre savvy, cunning and suave. Both films are very good popcorn horror movie flicks despite/because of the low budgets.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Yorga himself, he's apparently dealt with many a vampire hunter before and practially run circles around the protagonists. He only loses due to either being too brash at the last minute or something he didn't take into account.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Erica once she becomes a vampire. [[spoiler: She ceases her attack on Michael, banking on him being too sentimental to stake her, and hides behind the red-haired bride when flashed with a cross. She also glances ominously at Donna during this, likely knowing she's not human anymore.]]

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They have the usual weakness to sunlight and crosses, but their teeth are very piranha like rather then the two fangs. The turned victims are also rather zombie like with umkempt hair, they almost never speak, ([[spoiler: Donna's mother]] has a few lines in the first film and Ellen in the second when she talks to her boyfriend, post turning), and they are relentless in trying to catch their prey since their dead bodies don't have to worry about stamina or wounds (save a stake to the heart). They also can apparently decay if left underground too long after turning as a few of the brides in the second movie have discolored skin.

Many of the people he turns aren't even killed by the end of the films. Both films are very good popcorn horror movie flicks despite/because of the low budgets.

* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler: Subverted, vampire transformations are permanent. So even if Yorga dies, his victims will stay undead and continue to kill.]]

* SpiritualSuccessor: 1972's ''The Deathmaster'' stars Robert Quarry (who plays Yorga) and was made by the same production team, though it features Quarry as a different vampire character. Many fans and reviews like to name it as an "unofficial" third Yorga movie.
