Q: THE WINGED SERPENT
1982, 93 min, USA, Dir: Larry Cohen

Q is a winged resurrected Aztec deity decapitating New York citizens - and two-bit piano player Michael Moriarty knows just which skyscraper hides its nest. He intends to profit from the knowledge, much to the dismay of cops David Carradine and Richard Roundtree.


THE STUFF
1985, New World, 93 min, USA, Dir: Larry Cohen

A newly popular food - the gooey "stuff" of the title - turns out to contain a deadly virus in Larry Cohen's sly combination of horror movie and social satire. Cohen regular Michael Moriarty stars, along with Garrett Morris, Paul Sorvino, Danny Aiello and, in a cameo, Brooke Adams.


THE AMBULANCE
1990, Park Circus/MGM, 91 min, USA, Dir: Larry Cohen

When a medical crisis strikes and paramedics show up, they’re usually there to help, but this taut (and sometimes hilarious) thriller from writer-director Larry Cohen turns that notion on its head. Comic book artist Eric Roberts is chatting up Janine Turner on the streets of New York when she collapses and is whisked off in an ambulance - but she never makes it to any of the local hospitals. As Roberts tries to unravel the mystery, snappy reporter Red Buttons and cynical cop James Earl Jones help and hinder him, respectively.
