RATTLERS 2 (2021) Reviews of belated snakes sequel


Rattlers 2 is a 2021 American horror film about more lethal rattlesnake attacks in the California desert that began forty-five years ago. The movie is a very belated sequel to Rattlers (1976).

Directed by Dustin Ferguson (Arachnado; Angry Asian Murder Hornets; Ebola Rex; Amityville: Evil Never Dies; The Amityville LegacyCamp Blood 4 and 5Meathook Massacre) from a screenplay co-written by Josh Price and Lee Turner, the SCS Entertainment production stars Mel Novak, Brinke Stevens, Mercedes Peterson, D.T. Carney, Dawna Lee Heising and Jennifer Nangle.


“A fun, throwback effort that manages to generate a lot of connections to the original, the few issues aren’t really issues as the positives are far more prominent. Fans of the original, the creative crew or this kind of indie effort will find quite a lot to like here…” Don’s World of Horror and Exploitation

“Writers Josh Price and Lee Turner keep things in the new footage interesting and moving at a fast enough pace that it didn’t matter how familiar it all was. And, unlike some of Ferguson’s earlier films, it isn’t just a series of random people going into the woods and dying. There are a couple of moments that didn’t work for me. A rattlesnake acting like an anaconda and dragging its victim to her death for example. Showing the original’s bathtub scene and then trying to restage it was another.” Voices from the Balcony
