Audience Reviews for The Flying Serpent
Not as exciting as it appears to be, but it's still an interesting murder mystery with a creature twist. The characters are a bit lacking, and the plot is pretty slow. The monster was a bit cruddy looking, yet fun. Nothing too memorable, but I wasn't disappointed.
Poverty Row film by PRC reworks their DEVIL BAT film using the Quetzalcoatl myth and replaces Bela Lugosi with George Zucco. Rather bland adaptation lacks the Lugosi charm and wry script of The Devil Bat, but Zucco is interesting as always and the creature effects capture attention. In poorly lit scenes, it looks as if a monitor lizard was outfitted with appliances and this creates creepy live-action movements. The scenes involving the Flying Serpent's flight are surprising as well. Hope Kramer has an different sort of beauty, but the going is rather rough for a 58 minute film. For Zucco and Poverty Row fans only.
