Rattlesnake Review

Updated on June 27, 2020

Rattlesnake (2019) review

There is an old Hitchcock method of filmmaking that I once heard him speak about in an interview. He posed that if you were watching a scene with two people sitting at a table eating dinner, it wouldn’t be a very interesting scene. However, if you show there is a bomb under the table right as the scene starts and then show the two people eating, it adds an element of excitement to the scene. It changes the whole dynamic. There is an element of that in this film, and I found it to be very well done.

Rattlesnake (2019) was written and directed by Zak Hilditch and stars Carmen Ejogo, Theo Rossi and Emma Greenwell. Katrina (Ejogo) is driving through the desert when her tire blows out in the middle of nowhere. While she is changing the tire, her daughter is injured by a lethal rattlesnake bite. Katrina enlists the help of a nearby stranger to save her daughter’s life, but at what cost? She soon finds she must make amends by taking a life to save her daughter’s.

What a crazy premise. That alone made me want to see this movie, and it was very good. The story was intriguing and very well paced.It felt like non stop action from beginning to end. I really felt for Katrina as her situation seemed to become more and more hopeless. I just loved the underlying story that this woman was going to have to find it in herself to become a murderer or she would lose her daughter. This film was truly chilling.

In short, I would recommend this movie to any horror fans. I am not a particular fan of supernatural type horror movies but this one was something special
