A Larry Cohen screenplay of Q
United Film Distribution Company, 1982. Typed and xerographic Manuscript Signed ("Larry Cohen") with annotations, 135 pp, 4to, [Los Angeles], [c.1982], identified as Cohen's "work copy," here titled "Prey: A New Thriller," heavily annotated throughout and with several pages entirely in manuscript, title page with closed tear at lower right margin, pages toned and thumbed, in envelope annotated by Cohen identifying the manuscript. In the cult classic Q, Larry Cohen introduces a new entry into the movie monster canon: the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl, a winged, dragon-like lizard who attacks random New Yorkers on their rooftops. An out-of-work musician named Quinn discovers her lair with a newly laid egg in it and offers to lead the city to it for $1 million, but the city reneges, leading to chaos. The film's box office in 1982 was weak, but later audiences have enjoyed its campy mix of horror, crime and satire. Many critics consider this film to be among Cohen's best.
