England has been overrun by a pandemic with no apparent cure. As the infection continues to spread, safety - for a lucky few - looms in the form of a damaged 747 set to seek solace abroad. It’s only once the plane is airborne that the survivors discover the infection made it onto the flight with them. As the survivors begin to take sides and try to impress their desires on one another, it becomes clear they’re in as much danger from each other as they are from the infection. Shot through with an uncomfortably intimate tension, ‘The Carrier’ mixes classic elements of the best apocalyptic movies with its own unique flourishes to create a film that feels both reminiscent of the masters of the genre and fresh enough to be consider a roaring in its own right. Tight direction by Anthony Woodley combines with a strong script to bring character and emotion to the forefront and deliver a very human story amid the spread of infection. As a stellar cast breathes life into their characters, the death toll rises and, with the plane forced to land, a battle against the infected reveals the darkest traits of humankind.
