Count Yorga, Vampire is a 1970 American vampire horror film directed by Bob Kelljan and starring Robert Quarry. It was followed by a sequel, The Return of Count Yorga. Count Yorga... is arguably the first modern film adaptation of a vampire character as living in the 20th century. The scenario opens with narration by character actor George Macready (whose son Michael produced the film) about superstition and the abilities of vampires. A truck is loaded at the Port of Los Angeles, and as it climbs to a gated mansion in the California hills, the cargo is revealed to be a coffin. Donna hosts a séance in hopes of contacting her recently deceased mother. At the party are several of her friends and Count Yorga, a mysterious Bulgarian mystic who performs the séance. Donna becomes hysterical during the proceedings, and Yorga uses hypnosis to calm her.
