A group of young horror fans go searching for a film that mysteriously vanished years ago but instead find that the demented killer from the movie is real, and he's thrilled to meet fans who will die gruesomely for his art.
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 »

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 ...

Tooth and Nail is one of those ever-growing number of 'apocalypse' films, depicting a bleak futuristic world filled with... well, nothing much really - broken down buildings and empty roads.
In this case, as the narrator explains to us in the opening monologue, it wasn't a comet or nuclear war that wiped out humanity, it was a lack of petrol (or 'gas' as it's set in America). Um, okay, it's best to just take that at face value for the purposes of watching the film. In fact, it's probably best to get your mind in the frame of watching most of it in that way (if you want to have any hope of enjoying it).
We meet a small band of survivors who have taken refuge in a large inner-city hospital and who spend their days desperately searching for food. However, they come a cropper when they bump into a ruthless band of cannibals, hell bent on having them all for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And there you have it, it's a 'stand off' movie - think Assault on Precinct 13, but without the huge cult following.
Now, I normally hate movies (typically horror movies) where the heroes due stupid things, like run back into the haunted house instead of calling the police. I should warn you that there are plenty of these moments in Tooth and Nail. Yet, for some reason, I couldn't find it in me to hate this film. I've turned off many a movie for stupid characters, but I sat through this in its entirety.
Granted it's no classic. If you check out the other reviews you'll find more than your fair share of hate directed towards it. However, if you lower your expectations significantly (hey, it has Vinnie Jones in, so what are you expecting - Shakespeare?!) you might find it entertaining for an hour and a half of bloodthirsty horror where vicious cannibals prey on some of the stupidest human survivors ever to be left alive.
