Word out on the Web is that Robert Quarry, legendary star of "Count Yorga, Vampire", has passed away. This news really crept in under the radar, but then Quarry was no a superstar like Vincent Price. But he deserves his place in history.
Quarry also starred in "Deathmaster," an amusing vampire film that plays off the Charles Manson mythos, and in Vincent Price's "Madhouse" and Price's "Dr. Phibes Rises Again."
At Cinefantastique, Steve Biodrowski penned a touching obituary to the almost-legend. "I will always think of Robert Quarry as the Greatest Horror Star Who Never Was." Click here for it.
