June 7, 2017
An extremely sober film with an excellent psychological treatment of characters and capable of transmitting an atmosphe as unhealthy and toxic as the beings who pullulate in a world about to disappear. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 26, 2015
It's not a film about the gradual extinction of humankind -- it's actually about the horrible demise of humanity.
July 7, 2015
A solid drama about pettiness, individualism and foolishness. [full review in Spanish]

November 2, 2011
...an awfully familiar premise that's employed to lukewarm (yet watchable) effect by filmmakers Alex and David Pastor...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 22, 2010
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.
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
December 11, 2009
A moody, engaging end-of-the-world horror-drama, if a bit too apocalypse-lite.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 11, 2009
Diverting and well made with solid performances, but Carriers adds nothing new.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
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.

The anti-Zombieland - a darker, more intense look at humanity.
| Original Score: 3/5
December 11, 2009
Never less than engrossing, this is one trip you won't want to make.

December 11, 2009
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.

December 11, 2009
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.

December 11, 2009
The lean running time leaves little room to develop the characters or deepen the story but Carriers is a decently done doomsday B-movie.

December 11, 2009
An enjoyably dark, emotionally gripping thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 11, 2009
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.

December 11, 2009
It is bleak, gloomy, emotional and a surprisingly good little movie which has been unjustly languishing on a shelf at Paramount
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 11, 2009
It's no candidate for greatness, but it deserves to find an audience among connoisseurs of doomsday cinema.

November 4, 2009
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.
