Four kids are driving through the desert on the way to the beach, their faces anything but cheery: this isn't Spring Break. They're trying to outrun the end of the world—and each other. In Alex and David Pastor's Carriers, no one is safe from the viral pandemic threatening to wipe out the human race.

Determined to elude the deadly virus, Danny (Lou Taylor Pucci), his brother Brian (Chris Pine), his girlfriend Bobby (Piper Perabo) and Danny's school friend Kate (Emily Van Camp) speed across the Southwestern U.S. to reach a place of possible safety. Over the course of four days, the group is faced with moral decisions that no human should ever be forced to face. They discover that their greatest enemy is not the microbe attacking humanity, but the darkness within themselves.

  • 5 stars "I know it predictiable.but it open our mind about the danger of EGO"
  • 5 stars "To be honest I didn't have really high hopes for this film, but having seen it, I really regret having waited so long before watching it. It is absolutely terrific. It's a very simple and small story, a fairly straight-forward horror movie about a horrific virus that has crippled humanity. You can think of it akin to a zombie movie, but the death that the victims of this virus suffer is no worse than if they re-animated from it. From so simple a premise comes a remarkable film, about four average young folk who just want to make it to thier destination in a post-apocalyptic, death-ravaged world. What makes this film remarkable however is the writing and acting: The story follows beautifully"
  • 1 star "I did not like this movie. The story line was weak and predictable."
