Carriers is grimmer than necessary.

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

It's a zombie movie without any zombies, which works about as well as a martial arts film where nobody gets punched in the teeth.

Brings absolutely nothing new to the table.

A queasy mixture of survivalist machismo and mawkish piety.

Time Out
December 11, 2009
This thoughtful, low-key exploration of our darker survival instincts is too conventional and unfocused to fully engage our emotions.

engaging despite its downbeat message and lack of zombie action.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

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

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

Peter Bradshaw

December 11, 2009
Plays like Zombieland's humourless twin: with none of the gags and, unfortunately, not many of its genuine moments of tension.

A solid drama about pettiness, individualism and foolishness. [full review in Spanish]

The anti-Zombieland - a darker, more intense look at humanity.
| Original Score: 3/5

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.

Digital Spy
December 11, 2009
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

It's not a film about the gradual extinction of humankind -- it's actually about the horrible demise of humanity.
December 11, 2009
Diverting and well made with solid performances, but Carriers adds nothing new.

Jon Hamblin
SFX Magazine
December 22, 2009
A thoughtful effort, a meditative treatise on the ethics of survival in a land where all hope is lost.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
Grant Lauchlan
Daily Record (UK)
December 11, 2009
It is bleak, gloomy, emotional and a surprisingly good little movie which has been unjustly languishing on a shelf at Paramount
