Larry Cohen on

Q The Winged Serpent

Released 1982
Distributor United Film Distribution Company

Larry Cohen gives us as much info as he can squeeze in about his guerilla monster movie about the flying serpent Quetzelcoatl, especially considering this teaser runs only 30 seconds! Stop-motion animator David Allen had to rise to the occasion, as none of the background plates Larry shot were made in the traditional manner.
