Official Carriers trailer online
The trailer for Carriers was online back in January but was quickly pulled, now it's back and it's been re-edited. Focussing more on the thriller and psychological horror aspect of the story it seems stronger than ever.
It also gets to capitalise on the notoriety of Chris Pine now that everyone who's anyone has seen him in Star Trek (Filmstalker review), and I think that's a damn good thing, especially now I've seen the trailer.
Of course the film was made back in 2007 so it's pretty old by now, but it has an interesting younger cast with Chris Pine, Piper Perabo, Lou Taylor Pucci and Christopher Meloni and was written and directed by David and Àlex Pastor.
"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."
Right, now all that's over, let's get to the trailer and see what you think of this film which has sat for so long without an audience.
