In a world devastated by an outbreak, Brian, his girlfriend Bobby, his brother Danny and their friend, Kate, are heading to a beach where the brothers spent their childhood vacations expecting it to be a sanctuary. When their car breaks down on the road in the desert, they negotiate with a man called Frank, who is also stranded but without gas. He is trying to get his daughter Jodie to the hospital (she is infected with a disease of some kind), they all decide to travel together. During the journey, massive moral dilemmas arise, as events head into a downward spiral. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In the beginning scene when the camera is turned upside and the car is coming. You can see the yellow lines on the road and only those, but suddenly when it changes scenes and says Lou Taylor Pucci, another line magically appears next to the other line on the road. See more »

One HELL of an Emotional Trip
27 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Carriers, Wasn't sure about it, We got it in At work and I decided to Rent it out and try it, Wow. I was Shocked. For a "No nothing" film, It was actually very very good. Not what You'd except seeing as how it was advertised as "Horror".

Believe you me, It was anything BUT scary. Sure they tried to pull it off with some "jump" scenes but nothing really horrible, Really this movie was So emotional, So powerful, About the power of friendship and Family. It made me tear up from time to time, you just felt so ...bad for them and there situation. Really I would check it out, It is worth the watch.
