Rattlers (1976)

How bad is it? It's one of the lesser animals attack films.
Should you see it? If it shows up late at night on TV.

Toxic waste turns rattlesnakes extra-extra-deadly, rather than just deadly and that seems to be the excuse for them to behave like snakes never do. They bite through tires. They stalk people.  It's hard to get a snake to act on command, so the attack scenes are all stagey. A woman takes a bath for no reason other than that makes for a cool attack scene. The guys investigating the case just head off to Las Vegas for no reason (all on film) and then come back - we apparently get to see their vacation video. It's too dull to be entertaining, and not bad enough to be entertaining.
