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

[[folder: Both Films]]



* BadBoss: Briefly seen in the first movie when [[spoiler: Yorga pushes Donna's mother into a stake to distract Michael and run off.]]



* 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.]]
* BigNo [[spoiler: The last thing Cynthia says as a human before the newly vamped Baldwin bites her.]]
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Yorga's brides in the first film follow this hair color. [[spoiler: It was intially just Blonde (Donna's mother) and redhead. Erica joining fulfills the "brunette" of the three.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: The child character from the second movie.



* CreepyChild: Tommy in the second film after Yorga brainwashes him. He remains stoic for the rest of the film [[spoiler: and later kills two of the characters.]]
* CruelTwistEnding: Both movies.
** ''Count Yorga, Vampire'': [[spoiler: Michael is the only one left to rescue Donna after Hayes is killed by Yorga's brides (among them friend turned vampire, Erica). He manages to kill Yorga, rescue Donna and chase off his remaining vampire brides. But just as he relaxes and turns to Donna, she lunges at him, fangs bared. He was too late to keep Yorga from turning her.]]
** ''Return of Count Yorga'': [[spoiler: Like the first movie it only comes down to one rescuer, Dr. Baldwin, after the others are killed. He finds Cynthia and makes to escape, but are cornered by Yorga and his army of brides (which include some of their friends and even Cynthia's sister who were turned during the movie). Yorga takes Cynthia to be bitten but Baldwin escapes the brides and continues his pursuit. Things climax on the balcony of the manor where Yorga is killed (by Cynthia no less) and thrown off the building. But just as Cynthia starts to celebrate, she finds to her horror that Baldwin is a vampire (likely bitten by the brides). He promptly grabs and bites Cynthia, ironically dooming her to undeath that he was just trying to prevent not moments ago.]]
* DeathBySex: Subverted and played straight in the first movie.
* 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.
** 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.]]

* EatsBabies: One of the more infamous scenes in the first movie involved one of the bitten characters, temporarily succumbing to her bloodlust, eating her pet cat. A unused scene from the film [[http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s56/Retro7/19643eb0.jpg showed one of the brides actually eating a baby]], though it is mentioned later in the film.



* {{Expy}}: The first film gleans many things from ''Dracula'' with Count Yorga being the title character. Baldwin stands in for Dr Steward and Helsing, Michael is Harker, Paul is Quincy, Erica is Lucy, and Donna is Mina. Yorga even has three brides as Dracula did.



* ImmuneToBullets: In ''Return of Count Yorga'', two cops are beset by Yorga's vampire brides in a hallway. They shoot at the two front-most brides. But of course, being dead, they barely flinch and keep coming after them despite having bloodied stomachs.

* SlasherSmile: A now undead Ellen (Cythia's sister who, unlike her parents, joins Yorga's brides) sports one of these while being confronted by her boyfriend in the second movie.



* StakingTheLovedOne: Averted. One of the protagonists in the first film is given the chance to stake a female friend of his that has been turned (she actually stands there and waits for him). He considers it but ultimately can't do it and leaves her in her undead state.



* VaguenessIsComing: The beginning of the second movie sees a priest and the female lead discussing the "Santa Anna Winds" which the priest perceives as a bad omen that evil forces are coming. [[spoiler: Cut to the graveyard where Yorga is commanding his vampire brides to rise from their graves.]]

A pair of horror movies from Creator/AmericanInternationalPictures about said titled vampire. [[ThematicSeries Though neither movie share any continuity with each other, being stand alone stories]].

* ''Count Yorga'' (Original Title: ''The Loves of Count Yorga''): Yorga arrives in Los Angeles from a European country searching for fresh blood and to spread his curse in a land that only see vampirism as fiction. He targets a woman named Donna who recently lost her mother after being hired to preform a seance. Yorga firstly goes after her friend, Erica, whose bite wounds and sudden behavior draw the attention of doctor friend, Hayes, who suspect Yorga might be a vampire.

* ''The Return of Count Yorga'': Yorga arrives in a new community (to which the bridge "conveniently" goes out) and amasses an army of undead women. While out at a charity event for an orphange, he meets a young woman named Cynthia and becomes smitten with her. He sends his brides to kill her family and bring her to him, brainwashing her that she was the sole survivor of a car accident and hoping to woo her into willingly becoming a vampire. All the while her boyfriend, Baldwin, investigates her disappearance.

If it all sound familiar, that because it is essentially a 70's take of ''{{Dracula}}''. Though Yorga was much more genre savvy, cunning and suave. [[spoiler: As well as succeeding where Dracula failed: Spreading his vampirisim in a modern day foreign land. 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.

Interesting side note, the first film started off as a softcore porn movie. But Robert Quarry, the actor who played Yorga, agreed to do the film if it was just turned into a horror movie. You can still see some of the original overtones of the film however.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They have the usual weakness of 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 and barely or never speaking ([[spoiler: Donna's mother]] has a few lines in the first film and Ellen in the 2nd when she talks to her boyfriend, post turning) and are relentless in trying to catch their prey.

[[spoiler:: or if [[spoiler:If Yorga's killed, just continuing they continue on with their bloodlust as usual.

If it all sound familiar, that because it is essentially a 70's take of ''{{Dracula}}''. Though Yorga was much more genre savvy, cunning and suave. [[spoiler: As well as succeeding where Dracula failed: Spreading his vampirisim in a modern day foreign land. 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 the low budgets.

* ''Count Yorga'' (Original Title: ''The Loves of Count Yorga''): Yorga arrives in Los Angeles from a European country searching for fresh blood and to spread his curse in a land that only see vampirisim as fiction. He targets a woman named Donna who recently lost her mother after being hired to preform a seance. Yorga firstly goes after her friend, Erica, whose bite wounds and sudden behavior draw the attention of doctor friend, Hayes, who suspect Yorga might be a vampire.

* ''The Return of Count Yorga'': Yorga arrives in a new community (to which the bridge "conveniently" goes out) and amasses an army of undead women. While out at a charity event for an orphange, he meets a young woman named Cythnia and becomes smitten with her. He sends his brides to kill her family and bring her to him, brainwashing her that she was the sole survivor of a car accident and hoping to woo her into willingly becoming a vampire. All the while her boyfriend, Baldwin, investigates her disappearance.

* ImmuneToBullets: In ''Return of Count Yorga'', two cops are beset by Yorga's vampire brides in a hallway. They shoot at the two front-most brides. But of course, being dead, they barely flinch and keep coming after them despite having bloodied stomachs.

* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler: It makes sense Yorga's victims don't change back normal once he's killed as they're technically already dead and you can't revive someone who is. So even though they're vampires, the people they were as humans are indeed gone.]]

Yorga winds up winning posthumously due to a combination of his vampirisim being permanent, the last human getting bitten in in compound getting bitten, he has bitten enough people that it'll continue to spread after he's gone and that anyone outside those who knew about him being unaware that vampires exist.]]
