Johnny DuBiel's rating of the film Q: The Winged Serpent

In the mid eighties, B-movie horror-meister Larry Cohen was on a bit of a role, and this is the high point of his output in this time period. Surprisingly strong acting, specifically by Michael Moriarty, anchors a pretty solid horror/detective story. The serpent is used sparingly, and effectively.
