Default Count Yorga Vampire and The Return Of Count Yorga

Two of my favourite horror flicks from the 1970s are the Robert Quarry starrers - Count Yorga and its even better sequel The Return Of Count Yorga, both directed by Bob Kellijan.
Despite being low budget both films are genuinely frightening and the vampires within are probably some of the most effectively scary examples on celluloid. This seems to be down to their look and the way that they move, both of which are just downright creepy...
Also his victims during their change, adopt not so pleasant habits such as feeding on cats, sequences which are graphically and unpleasantly depicted:


The late Robert Quarry shines as this urbane but utterly ruthless and evil aristocratic vampire who is forever looking to add to his formidable platoon of female vamps...


PQ is really good on the DVDs and on it should really shine.
Basically I would love to see both titles UNCUT on asap please.

Very disappointing to hear that apparently these films were offered to both Arrow and Sceam by MGM and that both outfits have seemingly turned them down for an HD release.
