High voltage action from The Carrier will have you on the edge of your seat, and – even more impressively – it does so with a tiny budget.
Without the luxury of big visuals and big effects, the same level of tension is instead created through the smartly written and performed characters – their interplay and relationships. It’s this that makes the film as fun as it is.
It also does well to address the moral questions implicit in its premise – what do you do with all the infected people? – without getting too caught up in attempting to be a fable.
Great fun, full of suspense and drama – what The Carrier lacks in fancy special effects, it makes up for in punch.
