Rattlesnake

Critics Consensus

Carmen Ejogo is stranded in a wasteland both figuratively and literally in this disposable thriller, which lacks the cleverness or specificity to give its thin conceit any bite.

Movie Info

Katrina (Carmen Ejogo) is a single mother driving cross country to start a new life with her young daughter Clara (Apollina Pratt) when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. As Katrina changes the tire, Clara wanders off the desert road and is bitten by a venomous rattlesnake. Desperate to save her daughter's life, Katrina accepts the help of a mysterious woman, but after she miraculously heals Clara, Katrina is asked to repay the good deed by killing a stranger in exchange for the life saved. Without time to lose, she must wrestle with the morality of who deserves to live and who should die, before her daughter's life is once again put in peril at sundown.

  • Ejogo is an undeniably talented actor who has delivered strong turns in genre fare before, but she's adrift here, stuck with a character devoid of specificity and personality.

  • It's the kind of movie you forget just as you're clicking on to whatever the Netflix Overlords think you should be watching next.

  • As Katrina fumbles her way through multiple potential murder scenarios, "Rattlesnake" becomes more fascinating, illustrating a truth other thrillers too often miss: It's not easy to take a life.

    October 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The movie's as parched -- of thrills, chills, and basic narrative momentum -- as its New Mexico setting.

    November 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The cinematic equivalent of a phone call when a text would have sufficed.

    November 7, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • A movie that starts with an interesting idea ends up being not that interesting.
