This is a Canadian movie that stars a hot Belgian actress, Lyne Renee, and has a bunch of snakes. That's all you need to know.
Michael Bowen plays Burt, a biker who goes out collecting rattlesnakes and keeps them in his "Milking Depot" in his wife Luz's beauty parlor. He likes to make lewd comparison with his snakes with the hot bartender. We get to see him feed a mouse to a rattlesnake in one scene. He wanders around with his tongs and a bag full of snakes which sometimes escape. He brings vials of antivenin to a young pharmacy clerk whose breasts seem to want to get out of her shirt as much as the snakes want to get out of the bag, Then he takes her herping with him. Luz finds out and throws dishes at him in a jealous rage. That releases the snake he caught (which he told 911 operator was a "Mohavy" rattlesnake.) The snake bites him and Luz leaves him to die, locking the door so the ambulance drivers can't get in and cutting the phone cord so he can't call for help. She goes out and gets drunk and when she comes back Burt is dead and she gets bitten herself and dies. The whole side plot with Luz and Burt add absolutely nothing to the real plot, but at least we get to see a bunch of snakes.

We don't know where the movie takes place, so maybe it's in the range of Mojave rattlesnakes, but that doesn't really matter since the rattlesnake we see is a red diamond rattlesnake, not a Mojave. We never see Burt's face when he's handling a snake and all of the rattlesnakes turn into harmless snakes as soon as he is handling them, which is to be expected, but I'm always amazed they think they can fool us like that.
