In commemoration of the defacto horror holiday Friday the 13th, STX Entertainment has released the official trailer for the upcoming horror thriller movie Countdown. With a simple story about downloading a trendy new app on a smartphone going terribly wrong, those who use a strange Countdown app begin dying in mysterious fashion. Written and directed by Justin Dec, the movie stars Elizabeth Lail, Jordan Calloway, Talitha Bateman, Tichina Arnold, P.J. Byrne, and Peter Facinelli. John Rickard, Zack Schiller, Sean Anders, and John Morris produced the project.
In Countdown, a young nurse (Elizabeth Lail) downloads an app that claims to predict exactly when a person is going to die, and it tells her she only has three days to live. With time ticking away and death closing in, she must find a way to save her life before time runs out.Countdown is scheduled to release in theaters on Oct 25, 2019.
You could almost say it’s like The Ring with a modern, technological twist, with an app giving your life an expiration date rather than a mysterious VHS tape. With the app seemingly killing anyone who downloads it, hopes for cheating an inevitable death begin to look slim. You can watch the official trailer for Countdown below.
There are definitely some comedic components to be seen in Countdown, as we are able to inform from the trailer. It is clear that the film is partially providing a satirical tackle smartphones and trendy society’s dependence on such gadgets.

On the web, we have all seen these flash video games and quizzes which have promised to inform us precisely after we’d die, however at worst all it actually did was give viruses and malware to our machines. Countdown asks the essential query of how we would react if an app got here out which undeniably predicted the precise time of your loss of life.
Countdown is counting down the days until it debuts in theaters on Oct 25, 2019. Just in time for the big holiday during the Halloween season, it looks like a fun little horror movie to check out on the big screen. It certainly looks to be a bit more fun than scary, but also seems that it will make for a very entertaining watch. The official trailer for Countdown comes to us from STX Entertainment on YouTube.
