This film doesnโ€™t mess about. Within the first few minutes a window cleaner is decapitated by an unknown beast and a sunbathing beauty is plucked from a rooftop. David Carradine and Richard Roundtreeโ€™s cops are sent to deal with a mysteriously flayed corpse. And a seeming random crook takes part in a diamond heist.
The first half hour of this movie really sets up your expectations โ€“ a... read more

Description: Genre pioneer Larry Cohen, who broke new horror ground with the killer-baby hit It's Alive!, takes a stab at the giant-monster scenario with this enjoyable low-budget exercise. The title refers to the winged Aztec god Quetzalcoatl, represented here as a dragon-like flying lizard (thanks to some quaint but amusing stop-motion animation from David Allen), who decides to take up residence in the art-deco spire of the Chrysler Building, taking frequent jaunts in the midday sun to nip the heads off various hapless New Yorkers. The resulting bloody mess confounds detectives Shepard (David Carradine) and Powell (Richard Roundtree), who ... (more)

"First viewing - Oct. 12th I figured I'd make it an '80s night and began with this cult classic. It's a lot of fun to watch, though the construction of the film is rather slapdash at times. It'll jump to a scene that feels like it was forced into the narrative without any clear connective tissue, and then the scene ends almost as abruptly and jumps away elsewhere. Thankfully it's not a constant aspect of the film, but it happened at least twice and kinda bugged me. The cast includes Richard Roun"

" Date: 10/6/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray Rewatch Note: This movie is still a fun giant monster movie. It's not great, but it is cool to see a giant flying snake bird monster flying across New York City. The cinematography and camera work in this movie is excellent too. I love how this movie makes you feel like that you are flying in the sky as the giant monster. Not to mention, the special effects in this movie is really cool as well. This movie is a nice throw back to the 1950s giant monster movies "
