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

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...

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.

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
Skin-crawling moments aside, this glossy US studio movie is surprisingly less about splatter than moments of hard-hitting moral confrontation.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
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.
