David Nusair
Reel Film Reviews

...an awfully familiar premise that's employed to lukewarm (yet watchable) effect by filmmakers Alex and David Pastor...

Lessons of Darkness

Brings absolutely nothing new to the table.

Gloom, not thrills, in sci-fi drama of worldwide plague.

A little more realistic than a zombie flick. Some renegade virus could make the world a "survival of the fittest" ordeal. A very interesting story with some nice reveals. Paul Chambers, CNN.

It's like Zombieland, but without the laughs . . . or the zombies.

A thoughtful effort, a meditative treatise on the ethics of survival in a land where all hope is lost.

Empire Magazine

A moody, engaging end-of-the-world horror-drama, if a bit too apocalypse-lite.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

This thoughtful, low-key exploration of our darker survival instincts is too conventional and unfocused to fully engage our emotions.

Diverting and well made with solid performances, but Carriers adds nothing new.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

Plays like Zombieland's humourless twin: with none of the gags and, unfortunately, not many of its genuine moments of tension.

Daily Telegraph

Sadly it loses track of its own best ideas, pledging itself to a dreary set of surviving characters whose choices carry no charge.

Little White Lies

In lacking both subtley and specatcle... Carriers timidly takes its place in the realms of forgettable science-fiction fodder.

| Original Score: 2/5

Mayer Nissim
Digital Spy

A gritty low-budget mix of some of the best bits from Mad Max, Outbreak and Night Of The Living Dead, it ticks all the boxes in a refreshingly snappy 84 minute runtime.

The anti-Zombieland - a darker, more intense look at humanity.

Never less than engrossing, this is one trip you won't want to make.

Neil Smith
Total Film

Die-hard horror fans may find this a little on the tame side, while Pucci's survival rules have a lot in common with Jesse Eisenberg's in Zombieland. But it's still a well-crafted gripper, with a nice line in gallows humour.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

Very much horror-lite, here's a movie crying out for more claret to ramp up the sense of dread. Still, when dealing with the awful life-or-death decisions the survivors face, it's grimly effective.

Carriers is grimmer than necessary.

This is London

The movie has as much depth as the single piece of paper on which the script was obviously written.

A queasy mixture of survivalist machismo and mawkish piety.
