La Carcagne, as the monster is sometimes called in the film, has a great degree of characterization for an American movie monster, with an iconic screech and a manic personality brought to life by its puppet.
My only gripe is that it feels like Raija doesn’t really have a motivation for going out to fight, though I’m sure all will be revealed in time. The movie also clearly desires a scope it lacks the budget to achieve. For at least the past fifty years, usually near the end of November, this gigantic winged creature has been sighted in the skies above North America (particularly where Canada borders the United States). Still, it’s a fun film, and one that is quite entertaining.

As it is, she’s held down by a movie that settled in an uncomfortable middle ground between two extremes. La recherche sur la famille CARCAGNE a permis de trouver 7 familles.

I trust we're not going to use a Hollywood B-movie as a credible source on what's actually in Fr-Canadian folklore.
If her movie went either a bit more surreal, or, alternatively, her design skewed a bit more realistic, she would be one of the better monsters of her era. Combining La Carcagne with the Ookondoru and the myth of the Thunderbird is also brilliant! I've just watched the movie and did not catch anything like that in the dialogue.
