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.
Well-made but not particularly inventive, this post-apocalyptic thriller is like a college road movie crossed with Mad Max. The cast is much better than this thin script deserves, but the film does generate some great jolts.
it abandons these models of action, comedy and the supernatural, preferring instead to root its horror in the grimly realistic human drama of four random wanderers gradually losing everyone and everything that they hold dear.
Put into extremely limited release by Paramount Vantage after spending years in studio lockdown, Carriers has moments of genuinely communicable horror and thus deserves better than a de facto theatrical quarantine.
