Carriers is a 2009 horror film about four people fleeing a viral pandemic. It was written and directed by Àlex Pastor and David Pastor and stars Lou Taylor Pucci, Chris Pine, Piper Perabo and Emily VanCamp.



A pandemic virus has already spread worldwide, killing almost everyone. Two brothers, Brian and Danny, along with Brian's girlfriend Bobby and Danny's friend Kate, are heading to a place called Turtle Beach where they believe they can wait for the viral pandemic to die out.

On their way there, they meet a man and his infected young daughter and end up taking them to a place where a serum for the pandemic has been developed. They discover that that the serum doesn't work, and Bobby is accidentally infected by the little girl, though she hides this from the others. They leave the man and his daughter behind. Later, though Bobby tries to prevent it, Brian kisses her. Bobby's infection is discovered shortly thereafter, Kate stresses that they will end up dead if Bobby continues to travel with them and they end up leaving a weeping Bobby behind at a deserted gas station.

Brian later breaks down under the pressure of having to make all of the difficult decisions in order to keep everyone alive, and Danny discovers that his brother is also infected. At Kate's urging, he shoots Brian and burns the disease-ridden body. Afterward, Danny and Kate reach Turtle Beach and Danny realizes that, without his brother, the place that had seemed so special to them as kids is now empty. The film ends, leaving their fate uncertain.



The movie was completed and screened in 2007, but wasn't scheduled for a release by Paramount Vantage until September 2009.[3]
