Ok kids, this movie looks really good. It is an indie post-apocalyptic plague horror/thriller called Carriers, which stars Chris Pine in a performance before he took on before the role of Captain Kirk. The film was shot in 2006 believe it or not. It was developed for Paramount's independent label, Paramount Vantage, which doesn't exist anymore. Paramount now finally plans on releasing the film in September. The reason? Chris Pine's popularity has exploded, even though the movie looks good regardless of his involvement. The film also stars Lou Taylor Pucci, Piper Perabo, and Emily VanCamp.
Here's the Story Synopsis:
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 a 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.
