Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This thoughtful, low-key exploration of our darker survival instincts is too conventional and unfocused to fully engage our emotions."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Brings absolutely nothing new to the table."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"It's like Zombieland, but without the laughs . . . or the zombies."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"Diverting and well made with solid performances, but Carriers adds nothing new."
‑ Catherine Bray, Film4
"In lacking both subtley and specatcle... Carriers timidly takes its place in the realms of forgettable science-fiction fodder."
‑ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
"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."
‑ Rob Nelson, Variety
"Gloom, not thrills, in sci-fi drama of worldwide plague."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"A thoughtful effort, a meditative treatise on the ethics of survival in a land where all hope is lost."
‑ Jon Hamblin, SFX Magazine
"Plays like Zombieland's humourless twin: with none of the gags and, unfortunately, not many of its genuine moments of tension."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"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."
‑ Mayer Nissim, Digital Spy
" awfully familiar premise that's employed to lukewarm (yet watchable) effect by filmmakers Alex and David Pastor..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"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."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"A moody, engaging end-of-the-world horror-drama, if a bit too apocalypse-lite."
‑ Simon Crook, Empire Magazine
"Sadly it loses track of its own best ideas, pledging itself to a dreary set of surviving characters whose choices carry no charge."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"The anti-Zombieland - a darker, more intense look at humanity."
‑ Laila Hassani, Heat Magazine
