NYPD detectives Shepard and Powell are working on a bizarre case of a ritualistic Aztec murder. Meanwhile, something big is attacking people of New York and only greedy small time crook Jimmy Quinn knows where its lair is.
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?Written by

The original theatrical print, as well as the HBO and Cinemax airing, and the syndicated TV print, at the finale of Q, with the shot of the new egg hatching and the camera zooming inside to black, instead of cutting to the credits, a title card stating that Michael Moriarty's character sued the city and got $1 million tax-free , yet all video and DVD of this film is missing this.

This masterpiece of modern science fiction stands in a class all by itself. the story has a little something for everyone, it has humour,action and excitement, and most of all great special effects. This geat godzilla style 80's monster movie really hits the mark. Gigantic winged reptile stalking new york city reflects horror flicks of the 50's.Truly a cult classic. one of my favorites, I recommend this one to any fan of the genre. However, the squeamish should avoid at all cost.
