Rattlesnakes are the stars of this unspectacular killer-reptile film set in the Mojave Desert. Zoology professor Sam Parkinson (Sam Chew) is determined to get to the bottom of a rash of mysterious murders and Ann (Elisabeth Chauvet), a photographer, aids him in his investigation. Together
they discover that snakes, attacking in packs, are the culprits. Following the clues to a nearby Army base, they learn of a hidden crate of nerve gas to which the rattlers were exposed and which has chemically driven to them to murder. This dull revenge-of-nature film is far too static and
slow-paced to be worthwhile.
