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.

Another great Cohen film, with that special strange magic he brings. Moriarty is delightfully pathetic, and the monster effects are charming as hell.

if you're like me and you like watching really bad movies and laughing at them, this movie is for you! its best if you watch it with some friends over a few beers in my opinion! if you go into it thinking of it as a regular movie, youre probably not gonna like it much. with these type of movies i find it best to just have fun with it! very dumb and bad movie, but i feel it has some charm to it! 10/10 would watch again!
