This is an interesting film that does a decent job of creating & maintaining an atmosphere of dread throughout. I'm a fan of contagion films (28 Days later, George A Romero's The Crazies, Right At Your Door, I Drink Your Blood, The Stand, etc) and find them to be very effective. This type of Horror works best when it maintains an overall feeling of reality throughout. The concept of a disease that kills off the majority of the planet's population is really scary.

Well, it's not a zombie movie. However, it shares the same basic premise as most flicks from the "infected" sub-genre of zombie movies.

There's an infection. It's deadly. It's not well-explained. People are panicky, stupid, dangerous and potentially deadly (whether from a gunshot or from a cough). Everyone wants to find a safe haven and avoid getting dead. Everyone is in survival mode, squabbling over resources, etc. There is little hope in sight.

Like Zombieland and any number of "infected" movies, it's about a small group of people (two brothers and their girlfriends [or not]) traveling across the country, trying to find someplace safe to hunker down and ride out the course of the disaster. Along the way they meet a number of people, most of whom end up being at least somewhat adversarial. Over the course of the movie, most of the characters get dead...

This movie is largely about the characters, as such things go. So, it's at least partly a drama of interpersonal relationships during a biohazardous crisis, though it's mainly a horror/suspense movie. Not so much scary as mildly unsettling at times, and with some obviously disturbing imagery.

That said, it's pretty decent as far as such things go, without actually BEING a zombie movie. I had few complaints about it. I'd say it's pretty good and worth a watch or two.

Yes, the world is ending...again. The hook this time is a little different. CARRIERS never really explains the how or why, the simplest explanation is everyone is either dead or dying.

Two brothers, and their girlfriends have packed up and are on a road trip to outrun death. When they were younger, their favorite vacation spot was at the beach, so their logic is let's go there.

I know this doesn't sound very interesting, but it is. The actors carry (bad pun)this film. The relationships or lack there of, is heartbreaking and they make you feel that hope is almost there. They make you want to believe so badly that if you follow the rules, you will live to see another day.

And there are rules.

CARRIERS is a big thumbs up for me. It's intensity captured my interest and held me spellbound throughout the movie. If you're looking for special effects or lots of action sequences, this isn't your movie. But if you want to see and feel emotion, sometimes dark emotion, CARRIERS will deliver this in spades.
