The Flying Serpent: Terrible Movies #199

I would not have named this film The Flying Serpent, as the film only contains about 10 minutes of actual flying serpent action. A more accurate title would have been, "The Black Sedan, Or Possibly A White One, That Drives People Around The Desert After They Look For Flying Serpent Feathers In The Bushes", but no one would want to see that. Did people in the 1930s pay good money to watch movies where people drive a lot, or where people in suits broadcast on the radio, or where people wearing high-waisted pants use a "Gold Finding Doodlebug" (no, I don't know what that is, either), or watch comic relief make feathered flying serpent related double-takes amongst matte paintings of ancient Aztec temples? I find that extremely unlikely. Here's a flying serpent filled clip where merely holding a flying serpent feather causes a flying serpent attack which results in a severed jugular and loss of all your blood, but you don't get to see the jugular severing because that would be cool:

Wow, wasn't that gripping? No, I didn't think so, either. I watched it on Youtube, and you can watch it below:
