A while back I did an article about the upcoming horror movies making their way to us from Spain, in which was mentioned a viral outbreak movie called Carriers. Nothing was really known about it save that it was being helmed by Alex & David Pastor, but today we’ve learned oh so much more.
Quiet Earth tracked down a trailer and synopsis for the film, which sounds like it could be one hell of a good movie if it lives up to its lofty premise. Dig this;
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.
Now that’s what I’m talking about! The aforementioned trailer is below; no word on when Carriers will be out, but you can bet your ass we’ll be following its progress from here on out!
