Here`s a review of another zombie flick (the proper term these days is infection) coming to us from America but directed by Pastor brothers (their next movie is Strange But True, coming to us in 2011, hopefully we will live long enough to see it). Although there were many attempts to exploit the subject this one managed to surface in the see of mediocre movies. It’s a mixture of horror, thriller and drama, all mushed together into an interesting exploration of group dynamics with other factors reduced to minimum. This bears the truth that’s usually hidden in today’s world. This almost philosophical aspect of the Carriers will serve you well during the slower parts, when you can ponder questions about humanity and the end of the world. Deconstruction of the society is another fun aspect to consider pondering. The pacing is a little sluggish, but this enhances the troubling atmosphere after such a catastrophic event.

Four friends travel across zombie infested country to reach the beach. They will have to be careful not to get infected during this trip since when it comes to surviving people are just plain animals fighting for life. Do not expect profound movie like The Road, but classical infection outbreak flick with usual plot twists. Also don’t expect some zombie-extermination fest, for the most part, we are following four friends and their struggles to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Production is very good, and the special effects and make up also, so movie is visually very good with excellent camera work, enjoy…

Directors: Àlex Pastor, David Pastor

Cast: Lou Taylor Pucci, Chris Pine, Piper Perabo, Emily VanCamp, Christopher Meloni

Fun Stuff: The movie was completed and screened in 2007, but wasn’t scheduled for a release by Paramount Vantage until September 2009
