How can a cliché post-apocalyptic movie even be considered a horror movie? Did the After Dark Horror Fest standards changed when the second batch of movies were released? Tooth & Nail is by no means a real horror movie, not even familiar faces can save this movie.
A group of survivors are trying to survive in an abandoned hospital. This group of people is trying to start up society again in this post-apocalyptic world they are living in. When a group of the survivors find a woman on the streets they take her in.
Cannibals known as Rovers are hunting the woman they brought back to their base. When the sun goes down the Rovers are on the attack with
their battle axes, clubs, and other medieval weaponry.
This is the second After Dark Horrorfest movie to feature Boy Meets World turned horror movie rookie Rider Strong. Most people will remember him from Cabin Fever, but you can also check him out in Borderland. There are a few other familiar faces in this movie, most of which were stuck in numerous television roles.

At one point, when the Rovers first reach the hospital, they attack somebody outside.

The script to Tooth & Nail is pretty ridiculous. Been there, done that. Tooth & Nail is just like every other post-apocalyptic movie, but instead of being good it isn’t. When ...
