Carriers is an upcoming thriller horror movie written and directed the Pastor brothers (Alex Pastor and David Pastor). The movie follows four friends who try to get away from a worldwide flu pandemic that almost wiped out mankind in a very short time span. It is starring Lou Taylor Pucci, Chris Pine, Piper Perabo and Emily VanCamp.
Watch below the movie trailer of Carriers:
“Four friends fleeing a viral pandemic soon learn they are more dangerous than any virus.
A deadly virus has spread across the globe. Contagion is everywhere, no one is safe and no one can be trusted. Four young attractive people race through the back roads of the American West to the pounding beat of a vacation soundtrack. Their aim is to retreat to secluded utopian beach in the Gulf of Mexico, where they could peacefully wait out the pandemic and survive the apocalyptic disease. CARRIERS follow their getaway through a surreal and dangerous world where laws and rules no longer apply. Their plans take a grim turn when their car breaks down on an isolated road starting a chain of events that will seal the fate of each of them in an inexorable and horrifying voyage of hell through a western landscape populated by only the hideous dead or the twisted living. Their desperate retreat south turns into a deadly battle against infected children, homicidal doctors, crazed survivalists, rabid dogs, and, finally each other. The virus is the least of their problems as horrible choices must be made in the face of lost humanity.”
I’m both thrilled and horrified by this Carriers movie!
The premise of this post-apocalyptic thriller isn’t so farfetched: a deadly mutation of a bird flu in the near future is not so unlikely… And the new virus resulting from such a mutation could infect millions of people around the world, causing a flu pandemic worse than ever! Would be a bleak future…
I doubt that the carriers would have murderous thoughts like in the film though. But still, this is a hell of a movie! Can’t understand why the movie doesn’t have an official release date yet. Carriers deserves a theater release! Hope that Paramount vantage will really support the movie.
In the new world order there will be no saviors or survivors: there will be only carriers!
