Most of the Daily Dead team knows of my undying and irrational love for AIP's Count Yorga, Vampire and The Return of Count Yorga. Starring Robert Quarry, I have fond memories of hunting down and finally watching these movies as a kid, and they've stuck with me ever since. Thankfully for Derek, Heather, and many others, they don't have to hear me talk about my need for Blu-rays, as both are getting the high-definition upgrade in October.

First, Twilight Time will be releasing Count Yorga, Vampire on October 13th, along with John Carpenter's Vampires, Scream and Scream Again, and a number of other genre titles. For those of you who aren't familiar with Twilight Time's general release policy, the release will be limited to 3,000 copies each and you'll want to keep an eye on the Screen Archives Entertainment website for pre-order availability.

Scream Factory has announced that they'll also be releasing the sequel, The Return of Count Yorga, on October 13th. Pre-ordering for this title starts next month. At this time, there are no specifics on special features for either movie.

Fans of Robert Quarry may be curious about why there's no news on The Deathmaster making its way to Blu-ray as well. Even on DVD, this was more of a rare title to hunt down and MGM doesn't own the rights to it like it does with the Count Yorga movies. However, if you're looking for The Deathmaster, a standard definition version is available on Amazon's Prime Instant Video service, so make sure to check it out!
