Trapped in an isolated gas station by a voracious Splinter parasite that transforms its still living victims into deadly hosts, a young couple and an escaped convict must find a way to work together to survive this primal terror.
In a post-apocalyptic world, a small group of survivors, who call themselves Foragers, plan to rebuild civilization from their headquarters in an empty hospital based in what is left of Philadelphia. But they're soon forced into a face-off war with the Rovers, another gang of survivors whom are a brutal gang of cannibals. As the Rovers take out the Foragers one by one, the Foragers must draw on all their resources to stay alive. Written by
Most of the "Foragers" (excluding Darwin) are named after automobiles, in relation to the main cause of the social collapse being gas shortage: Dakota (Dodge Dakota), Ford (Ford Motor Company), Viper (Dodge Viper), Torino (Ford Gran Torino), Nova (Chevy Nova), Max (could be a reference to the Metropolitan Area Express), Yukon (GMC Yukon), Victoria (Ford Crown Victoria), and Neon (Dodge Neon). Likewise, the "Rovers" are named after canines: Jackal, Mongrel, Shepherd, Wolf, Dingo, Lobo, Black Dog, Hairball, and Pug. See more »
In at least two places, on long shots, automobiles can be seen moving on the streets in the background. One such is when Neon takes Dakota to the rover base and the long shot of the city appears. See more »
The end. The end of life as we know it. We didn't see it coming, that's for sure. I mean, who plans for an apocalypse? But you know the really funny thing? It wasn't something big and horrible that did us in. It wasn't nuclear war or a deadly virus or a comet crashing into the planet. It wasn't over-population or global warming. I wish it was. You know, something... lofty and magnificent. Something worthy of exterminating most of the human race. No. In the end it was ...

One of the best of the 2nd Annual 8 Films to Die For
Tooth and Nail took on a completely different aspect than some other cannibal movies for me, besides Silence of the Lambs of course, and I think it is possibly the most cunning of the 2nd Annuals, Borderland following extremely close behind, or maybe tying. Not too many things were wrong with this film for me except that it was kind of out of the blue how cannibals decided to raid this hospital which supposedly had people in it, and that Michael Madsen did not have as big of a role as I thought he was going to. However, the movie entertains and has a nice execution. It is really exciting and fun to watch. The characters are not really done that well, but they are passable and the script, while lazy, is still decent. I just had a blast watching it. It is not a masterpiece, and never could be quite honestly, but the whole premise is very enjoyable. Tooth and Nail is actually though tied for my favorite Afterdark Horrorfest film overall so far, so it's definitely worth the watch, in my honest opinion.
