"Can you dig it?"
"Some secrets are too big to keep hidden."

At the very beginning of this movie, we see a bunch of guys digging holes in the desert. One of them sees a rattlesnake outside his hole. (It's not likely one would be sitting out in plain view in the hot sun, but this is movieland.) He takes off his shoes and socks and holds one foot out so the snake will bite it, which it does, of course. That part's believable, but we don't have any idea what on earth is going on yet. Not a bad beginning. It got my interest. The snake is a Western Diamond-backed Rattlesnake, for those keeping score.
Later we see the warden polishing her nails with polish she says she makes herself with rattlesnake venom added to help the color. She says it's harmless, when it's dry, then scratches a guy on the face with her wet nails and his face swells up and has two huge scars for the rest of the movie. Don't worry, he deserved it.
