Shepard's sub-machine gun changes type during the raid on the nest. At the bottom of the ladder he's carrying a Sterling with a horizontal curved magazine. In the next shot at the top of the nest he's clearly carrying a late model M3 "grease gun" with a straight vertical magazine. See more »

A prehistoric serpent-type Aztec god soars high above New York attacking various people. Ex-con Jimmy Quinn (Micheal Moriarty) is the only living person who knows where it resides. And it's up to Detective Shepard (David Carradine) and Sergent Powell (Richard Roundtree) to find the creature in this cheese-fest. This is one of those films that you have to check your brain at the door for. Unlike most of Cohen's directorial efforts there's not even a hint of social commentary in here. Mindless entertainment B-movie fluff, but really GOOD mindless entertainment B-movie fluff.
