You think you’ve got problems?  Well in The Flying Serpent the female lead has a stepdad with an ancient god for a pet that he sends out killing.  Then this jerk enters the scene determined to ruin her life forever.

Oh wait, that’s supposed to be the romantic lead.

My bad.

The Flying Serpent is, at best, an average Grade Z forties monster flick.  Nothing startlingly original (in fact, a quasi remake of an earlier Z), nothing startlingly bad.  ‘Tis what ’tis (1 point).

The only thing it has going for it is an interesting performance by genre vet George Zucco.  So if you’re a Zucco fan, you might wanna check the old man in action.  For me, though, his presence didn’t rouse me from my apathy (1 point).

Overall Score: 2 total point out of a possible 4
