Low-budget post-apocalyptic thriller “Tooth & Nail” finds various uninteresting, whiny young protags fending off cannibalistic intruders while holed up in an abandoned Philly hospital. Uninspired effort by director-writer-editor Mark Young will pass time for undiscriminating genre fans on DVD after a fleeting theatrical run in this year’s After Dark Horrorfest.

Narration informs that the end of the world didn’t come about from nuclear war, global warming or another usual suspect — instead, in 2012, “We simply ran out of gas,” triggering a global domino effect of political-societal collapse and violent chaos. While most U.S. survivors headed south (since there’s no energy for heating), a few white twentysomethings have opted to stay in the seemingly safe confines of a Philly high-rise hospital. But after blonde Neon (Rachel Miner) is rescued from an attack on the otherwise empty streets, the group find themselves besieged each night by a band of “Rovers” who dress like “Road Warrior” extras and sadistically enjoy hunting/eating human prey. After their older leader (Robert Carradine) becomes the first to die, hapless remaining protags act stupidly until, natch, one girl abruptly morphs into Avenging Warrior Babe. Production assembly is routine.
