The demented archaeologist Dr. Andrew Forbes discovers a living, breathing serpent creature known to the Aztecs as Quetzalcoatl, the Killer Bird God, and accidentally kills his wife by giving her one of the beast's feathers, causing the creature to track her down and slaughter her. Now Dr. Forbes uses this twisted knowledge to extract revenge upon his enemies by placing one of the serpent's feathers on his intended victim and letting the beast loose to wreak havoc.Written by

As others have already stated, this is a "re-imagining" of THE DEVIL BAT w/ Bela Lugosi. This time, instead of a bat, we get the titular terror. Rather than special shaving lotion, it's lost plumage that drives this beast wild! Zucco is his old, perfectly stolid self, and Quetzalcoatl is serviceable enough, especially for a PRC release. An enjoyable yarn...
