| "Well, It Was Pretty, And Very Odd!"...
THE FLYING SERPENT stars George Zucco (DEAD MEN WALK, VOODOO MAN) as Professor Andrew Forbes, a greedy archaeologist who fervently protects an Aztec treasure he's discovered. How does he protect it? He has the legendary creature, Quetzalcoatl kept in a cage. Knowing how the big Q covets its feathers, Forbes leaves one w/ anyone he sees as a threat to his wealth. Then, throats are torn out and jugular veins severed! Can Forbes be stopped, before further blood-letting takes place? 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...
