Q: The Winged Serpent (1982), Larry Cohen, C

You’d think that “Q: The Winged Serpent” would be a good movie, wouldn’t you? Quetzalcotl is living in the spire of the Chrysler Building? Well, apart from some fantastic location shots (best is seeing the old Memorial Hospital on 106th & CPW — now multi gazillion dollar apartments — in complete disrepair) this movie is a mess and (alas) even a bit of a bore. It took me nearly the entire movie to realize that the guy who I thought we were supposed to dislike was actually the good guy. Why? WHYYYY? I so wanted to like this, but I couldn’t. Instead it is merely okay average fun.

  1. I give this one a pass because it was executive produced by one of my favorite men, Samuel Z. Arkoff. Responsible for such greats as Empire of the Ants, Hellhole, DIllinger, Dr. Phibes Rises Again, The Amityville Horror and many others. Also I can’t get over these tidbits I found on IMDB:

    Explained his “ARKOFF Formula” for making a successful movie, during a 1980s TV appearance: A good movie should include Action (excitement and drama), Revolution (controversial or revolutionary ideas), Killing (a degree of violence), Oratory (memorable speeches and dialogue), Fantasy (popular dreams and wishes acted out), and Fornication (sex appeal, to both sides).

    Or:

    Thou shalt not put too much money into one picture. And the money you do spend, put it on the screen; don’t waste it on the egos of actors or on nonsense that might appeal to serve highbrow critics.
