Tooth & Nail - Review

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Prudential Douglas Elliman Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Tooth and Nail isn't what I'd call a horror flick. There's some shocking violence and a few events that try something like suspense, but it isn't scary!! The world is thrown into a violent disaster as the last oil well is bled dry. Without gas everything goes to hell, and the majority of humanity is dead (what happened to the usual ‘super flu' or nuclear bomb?). Petroleum supplies vanish, and soon after so do electricity and any form of civilization. People are trying to survive as best they can. This horrible future comes courtesy of the world running out of gas. A small group of survivors holds up in a deserted hospital where they make plans to start civilization over, but things go all crazy when watch duty brings back an outsider who is hunted by a mob of cannibal survivalists.

It's a really bad Hills Have Eyes meets Mad Max-on-a-budget clone that's packed with predictability. Ten minutes into the movie my wife and I had successfully deducted the entire plot, including last act twist.

The idea of a cannibal Judgment Day story could work well as a horror film, but unfortunately the bad guys show up as normal men who don't seem all that intimidating. Other than the fact that they are a little bigger than average, it appears after the gas ran out, the tall people with gym memberships decided to eat people. That's not all that much of a stretch and not too scary. The movie is pretty stupid when you get down to it, and I guess that puts a stop to it from being too damn frightening. If you like post-apocalyptic cannibal flicks, then maybe you'll get more out of it than we did. It's awesome, then nothing happens, and then even more of nothing happens.  No suspense, no action, NOTHING!!!
