Q: The Winged Serpent

 (1982)

Q: The Winged Serpent Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Classic cult monster-movie horror. When a number of New Yorkers are brutally decapitated while sunbathing on their tenement building roof, two NYPD detectives are assigned to solve the case. Meanwhile, paranoid jewel thief Jimmy Quinn (Michael Moriarty) flees a botched heist and hides out on the roof of the Chrysler Building, where he unwittingly discovers the nest of the huge dragon-like creature that has been responsible for the deaths. As Quinn bargains with the police for a financial reward for his information about the creature's nest, a mysterious Aztec cult in the city start making human sacrifices to call on the creature they believe is Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent. Can the police get the location of the nest before more people are killed? And, once there, can they destroy the monstrous creature?

Q: The Winged Serpent Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Q: The Winged Serpent is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. It's been years since I've seen this film, and unlike some who insist they remember exactly how something looked decades ago in its theatrical exhibition, I only have dim memories of attending a midnight screening at a revival house. But I do remember that the film was not exactly a model of beautiful imagery, something that unfortunately is carried over into this high definition presentation. I have to assume that this was perhaps sourced from an older master, as a lot of this transfer is on the soft side, though colors are considerably robust quite a bit of the time and contrast is consistent if not overwhelmingly strong. Outdoor daytime scenes fare best here, with grain looking natural and the image approaching a level of sharpness and clarity that some of the darker interior sequences never quite attain. The opticals featuring Q are expectedly softer and grainier looking than the bulk of the film.


Q: The Winged Serpent Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Q: The Winged Serpent features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track that seems to be hobbled by some inherited imperfections in the source stems. There's some minor but still noticeable distortion in the upper and upper midranges which crops up occasionally in dialogue, but which is most noticeable in some of the louder passages. Amplitude is also weirdly variable at times, so you may want to have your volume button at the ready. There's nothing that approaches true dropouts, but there are definitely some noticeable fluctuations here. Fidelity is reasonable, given the above caveats, and dynamic range is really rather wide.
