Quarry's commanding performance and some offbeat touches make this a worthy fang flick.

Creative Loafing

Yorga may not be a very refined film, but it packs a lot of attitude ...

Offers some fresh blood into the dried-up genre.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Yorga's Southern California styles and setting are now Brady Bunch retro-chic, while its self-conscious exploitation of the era's newly liberated 'free love' attitudes has in 30 years slid from being cool to quaint.

this started life as a porn script. But then veteran TV personality and cheapo American knock off of Udo Kier, Robert Quarry, got involved and desexed the whole thing. In place of the jiggling willies, we are treated to a gruesome meal of a kitten, a lot of ponderous dialogue, and a doctor who does not even wait to finish an exam to light up a cigarette. Ah, the filthy 70s. Oh there is still plenty of sex. Especially in a van. Which I am told was a big thing back then. The truly creepy stuff in here that makes the movie memorable and effective? The high screeching soundtrack when Yorga attacks. The dead eyes of Donna and the made up overbite of Brudah. All amazing. Plus Michael Murphy (Cloak and Dagger, X Men Return, and a Batman movie)!
