New York police are bemused by a spate of reports of a giant flying lizard that has been spotted around the rooftops of New York, which they assume to be bogus until the lizard starts to eat people. An out-of-work, ex-con piano player is the only person who knows the location of the monster's nest and is determined to turn the knowledge to his advantage, but will his gamble pay off or will he end up as lizard food?

When Shepard visits the museum to ask about human sacrifices, the curator explains Aztec practices while gesturing and referring to the displays around them. These are however not Aztec, but North-Western Native American costumes and artifacts made at least 400 years later by a different culture thousands of miles to the North. See more »
I am the plumed serpent, I fly, and I crawl... I have fallen, but I shall rise again!

I really enjoyed watching this film for a number of reasons. First it does not try to be anything more than what it is, a B horror film with good character actor characterizations, some witty dialogue, cheesy special effects, an outlandish story, and lots of gore. Larry Cohen does a fine job with this picture about a Mexican god of a flying plumed serpent that is prayed back into life through human sacrifices. The film is both a horror film and a detective story. The acting is pretty good with Michael Moriarity and David Carradine standing out. The bird-like serpent lives in the pre-renovated Chrysler Building in NYC of all places, and the aerial photography is rather good as we see the beast stalk his prey on nearby rooftops and finally clash his human enemies at home. All in all a great way to spend ninety minutes.
