Crazy Triple Features: Twilight Time’s Strange Invaders, Scream And Scream Again & Count Yorga, Vampire

5 December 2015 4:06 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This week’s second Crazy Triple Features article is devoted to the wonderfully limited releases from Twilight Time. Known for putting out very limited amounts of films (mostly 3,000 copies), Twilight Time has been kicking ass for quite some time now, putting out great Bluray releases like Chuck Russell’s remake of The Blob, the horror classic Fright Night, and even John Carpenter’s Vampires. They set a date, release the titles, and for the most part, when they go, they’re gone for good. While thinking of a triple feature to watch last night, I looked for three films put out by the same company, but with the restriction of the films not having anything to do with each other. While this choices for this article aren’t as different as the previous Crazy Triple Features article, they’re still three very unique films, playing in different genre sandboxes, so to speak. »

Count Yorga, Vampire | Blu-ray Review

Before grindhouse director Bob Kelljan turned exclusively to television by the late 1970s, he had accidentally carved out a small triptych of derivative American vampire flicks, beginning with his first solo effort, 1970’s Count Yorga, Vampire. The actor turned director initially starred in his first co-directed effort, the incest drama Flesh of My Flesh (1969), but the success of his Dracula rip-off would carry on to a 1971 sequel before assuming duties for the Blaxploitation sequel Scream Blacula Scream (1973). Initially conceived as a soft-core porno, Kelljan eventually crafted this into a sort of Bram Stoker parody, although not everyone involved in the production seemed to be aware of this.

With his coffin arriving on a boat, Count Yorga (Robert Quarry) is relocated to modern day Los Angeles where he poses as a medium, holding swank séances at parties conceived by bored suburbanites. He’s invited to Donna’s (Donna Anders) home to »
