"Michael Moriarty's role as a small-time crook is unmissable. A guilty pleasure."
A New York loser indebted to the mob finds an unlikely ally in a flying prehistoric creature nesting atop a skyscraper.
The NYPD investigates eyewitness accounts of a gargantuan winged serpent in Manhattan and a string a senseless "ritual" killings. Against this backdrop, ex-junkie Jimmy Quinn finds work as a getaway driver for the mafia. One heist goes awry, so Jimmy hides out at the Chrysler Building's apogee. There, he sees "Q" -- an Aztec god-beast that has been feasting on window cleaners and apartment residents.
Then Jimmy gets a bloody good idea...
