Q - The Winged Serpent

Q - The Winged Serpent

Directed by Larry Cohen

In Larry Cohen’s ‘80s cult classic, a giant dragon comes to NYC to feast on pedestrians. His name is Quetzalcoatl and for months he’s been hiding in the Chrysler Building and devouring unlucky sunbathers around the city. But when a criminal (Michael Moriarty) stumbles across Q’s nest, he must decide whether to lead two cops (David Carradine and Richard Roundtree) to the hiding place. Cohen walks a tricky line, combining an homage to giant monster movies and a character study of a pathetic loser, but the result manages to be fun, scary, and, yes, moving.

Low quality film, high quality cheese. Really hope there’s a Mystery Science Theater 3000 of this in the not too distant future.

This was over the top fun the entire time. Especially entertaining after watching the Larry Cohen doc on here.

Actually not that bad. Ridiculous to the max, over the top acting. Really enjoyed it. A fun film.
