Pretty heavy stuff. Much like The Road. But, as much as I loved the novel "The Road," the film left me cold. This film, Carriers, carries the emotional weight that should have been present in The Road. Plus it is scary! My only complaint is that the ending felt a little tacked on, but in no way did that detract from the film. I can't recommend this enough. It's like the Horror Gods are smiling down on me after the shittiness of Death Tunnel. First Nosferatu and now this.
By the way, the scene that had me crying like a baby involved the great Christopher Meloni. Meloni plays a father whose young daughter is infected. The 4 friends have to make a choice about what to do with him and the girl. It is heart wrenching. I was not prepared--I love it when a movie surprises you!!
