Following the premiere of director Brad Anderson’s Fractured, the next Netflix and Chills offering comes in the form of Rattlesnake, starring Carmen Ejogo and directed by Zak Hilditch (1922).
The trailer above showcases Ejogo as a single mother named Katrina with her daughter on the road. When the daughter gets bit by the titular rattlesnake, Katrina looks for help in a nearby location and finds a mysterious woman who is able to hear the young girl supernaturally. However, Katrina learns she has to kill someone before sundown to repay the debt, offering a soul for the rescued soul of her child.
According to Collider, when asked about his excitement for the film, Hilditch stated:
“I really love movies that, either the ordinary person doing the extraordinary situation or where you’re just solely within a character point of view. Taking an ordinary person who was thrown in one day, so much extraordinary situation. I just liked the singular point of view films. My Australian movie was no different, The Final Hours following a guy’s journey on the last day on earth. I really just liked spending that screen time focusing on that one story, and the people that those characters pop into or bump against, helping you. sort of peel more layers of the onion away.”
Check out the footage above and catch Rattlesnake on Netflix on October 25.
