I'd been after The Flying Serpent for some time and finally obtained it at the beginning of this year (2006) when a mate ordered it for me from Amazon. Despite reading some bad reviews, I quite enjoyed it.
A mad Professor, Andrew Forbes discovers a living example of Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec flying reptile/bird god. He then gets feathers off it and gives them to people he doesn't like and sends the creature to these people and it kills them. Police are baffled by these deaths and towards the end, Forbes ends up with a feather himself...
A rather unconvincing model on strings was used for Quetzalcoatl and you can see these at times.
The cast is lead by B-horror regular George Zucco (Fog Island, Scared To Death) as Forbes. I've haven't heard of anybody else in this.
The Flying Serpent is a good way to spend an hour. Very enjoyable.
