what is it about snakes that puts a shiver up our spines?
I bought this film, can't blame the price or the delivery time, and I've loved horror films all my life, from silent to Hammer to Universal,to Lewton to video nasties of the 80s...
But,gulp, I don't think i'd watch this again, because the snake scenes were a bit TOO scary..
( I know, i sound like a woos..maybe i'm getting old...)

A modest film to pass the time nothing more. Could not see any hallmarks of a John Carpenter script. Such as an atmosphere of impending doom or dread or mordant humour. Looks and feels like his vision has been dumbed down to suit the pedestrian purposes of your typical made for tv movie,complete with dramatic pauses in which to insert commercial breaks.

When Rattlesnakes Attack! 14 Sept. 2001
By Biff Fearless - Published on Amazon.com
I believe this was originally a tv movie aired on WTBS but it is well acted and staged. Harry Hamlin takes on the role of a fire chief in a small but growing Southern California town. A massive housing development has disturbed the territory of a lethal new hybrid of Rattle Snakes with dire consequences for the new residents. Hamlin takes charge of the campaign to save the town. It seems in films it always falls to the fire department to handle animal attacks. I suppose that's why they call it Fire & Rescue. It has a suspenseful ending that makes this a notch above most films of this type. It borrows much of its premise from 'JAWS' but I suppose there are only so many different ways an outbreak of animal hostility can be displayed. The science is fuzzy in the film, as outrageous circumstances are needed to keep up the action.

RATTLE MY CHAINS 24 Feb. 2004
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The snakes in SILENT PREDATORS are some nasty critters, to say the least. We first meet them twenty years earlier, when a truck carrying this genetically bred rattlesnake wrecks, and the snake kills its two passengers. Fast forward 20 years and we meet Harry Hamlin as the new fire chief in a small town. Jack Scalia and Shannon Sturges portray the greedy land developer and his assistant who refuse to stop their bombing in spite of unleashing thousands of this newly bred snake. Suffice to say, the snakes do get loose, Scalia usurps Hamlin's power by bringing up a shady past, and veteranarian and Oscar-nominee Patty McCormack spouts out the balance of nature speech. A tense ending in a deserted mine shaft has sufficient chills and overall the cast and crew perform yeomanly. An above average TV movie.
"Shouldn't We Be Concerned About The Balance Of Nature?"... 20 May 2014
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
SILENT PREDATORS opens in the 1970s, w/ a crate full of deadly rattlesnakes being released when the truck carrying them crashes. Death ensues. Twenty years later, enter Vic Rontelli (Harry Hamlin- CLASH OF THE TITANS, MURDER SO SWEET), the new fire chief of a nearby town. Astonishingly, the snakes emerge and begin killing people right away! Vic investigates the situation, unable to understand how a normal rattlesnake could kill someone so quickly. Well, these are NOT normal snakes, they're a new breed of super-vipers! If that's not bad enough, a local developer has decided to cover up the existence of a rattler nest in the basement of one of his new houses, figuring it could be bad for business. SILENT PREDATORS is an enjoyable made-for-TV thriller from 1998. Hamlin is believable in his hero role. The snakes themselves are well-utilized, and actually pretty menacing. Watch for the wonderful Patty McCormack (THE BAD SEED, MOMMY 1 and 2, LEFT IN DARKNESS, SHALLOW GROUND) as the town pet shop owner! Squirming, slithering fun for everyone...
Not Bad but a Poltergiest catch 16 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
When anyone sits down to watch this movie many movies will come to your head while watching Silent Predators because it is a movie that copied off of many classic movies like Poltergiest and Jaws and many others. The plot is very simple but the writers I think could have been a little more creative like the new development is just like Poltergiest and instead of bodys under the house there are snakes under the house there is a real estate agent guy just like that guy in Poltergiest trying to cover up everything, and is sort of like Jaws also, and of course a corny love story also falls into the pie with some egotistical guy who saves the day and falls crazy for some chick. Same old Same old nothing new.
