Time Out

This thoughtful, low-key exploration of our darker survival instincts is too conventional and unfocused to fully engage our emotions.

It's like Zombieland, but without the laughs . . . or the zombies.

Variety

Put into extremely limited release by Paramount Vantage after spending years in studio lockdown, Carriers has moments of genuinely communicable horror and thus deserves better than a de facto theatrical quarantine.

Common Sense Media

Gloom, not thrills, in sci-fi drama of worldwide plague.

Jon Hamblin
SFX Magazine

A thoughtful effort, a meditative treatise on the ethics of survival in a land where all hope is lost.

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.

Empire Magazine

A moody, engaging end-of-the-world horror-drama, if a bit too apocalypse-lite.

This offers the kind of scares the OFLC would class as "mild apocalyptic peril". In its place is a stealthier suspense, bedded in the stark dilemmas… More
