Right off the bat, people are probably going to compare Carriers to Zombieland because of the rules. Carriers was released a full month before Zombieland, but Paramount Vantage folded upon its initial release causing its wide release to be an extremely limited one at the last minute (I think it wound up playing at only two theaters in the country). Expectations rise unintentionally in situations such as this. "This is that horror film that was practically shelved earlier this year and is finally being released." The result is a horror film that is well worth watching, but may not be entirely what you're expecting.
Carriers is more about establishing an atmosphere than anything else. Everything is abandoned and rightfully so as most people were picked off handfuls at a time by this pandemic.Read more ›
The brothers abide by three rules: 1) Avoid the infected at all costs because their breath is highly contagious. 2) Disinfect anything an infected person has touched in the last 24 hours. 3) The sick are already dead.
This is a movie about stupid people teetering on the brink of insanity. Brian's gung-ho exterior hides a scarred soul that has buried too many bodies. Danny's cowardly quiet conceals a calculating intellect. Bobby seeks refuge in the possibility of having children with Brian, while Kate tries every payphone she can find to call her family in the vain hope that the line still works...and that there's anyone left to call. These are deeply flawed survivors who have only made it so far because they flee at a moment's notice.
In our fast-food, GPS-guided, mobile phone culture, our cars are oases in a sea of parkways. We have no idea who lives in the towns we pass through; the people we speak to at a rest stop or a restaurant we may never see again. In Carriers, to stop moving is death, which is why rule number one is so important - in a world where everyone is infected, avoiding them means driving forever.Read more ›
One of the things you notice about this film is that the cast is very strong and very believeable. These are just regular people who are just trying to survive as society completely disintegrates and the rules change. The director made smart choices in my opinion with no few special effects - and thus making the film simply more realistic, barren, and terrifying. The film raises the question of what would you do if faced with the same situation? And it does make you think.
Choices and rules are difficult and they have to be. Chris Pine is very strong in the lead role and it's a great change from his role as Jim Kirk. He still is very charming at times but also reveals he can go the distance emotionally.
This is one of the better movies I've seen of this genre in a long time and it's completely worth your time. Seriously.

Manages to separate itself in a genre overpopulated with clones.Published 2 months ago by Godsbane777
This movie is a joke. If there really was an infection they would all be dead from contamination. Also, these people were the epitome of non survivors. Anyway not very engaging.Published 2 months ago by Woodacre
