‘Time waits for no one’

Rattlesnake is a 2019 American psychological horror feature film in which a single mother accepts the help of a mysterious woman after her daughter is bitten by a rattlesnake but finds herself making an unthinkable deal to repay her debt.

Written and directed by Zak Hilditch (1922; These Final Hours), the movie stars Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy; Marvel’s Luke Cage) and Emma Greenwell (Shameless, The Rock). It was produced by Ross Dinerstein (1922; The Package; 6 Balloons).


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…
