After avoiding getting into a car with her drunk friend Evan, Courtney receives a notification that she has violated the “User Agreement.” When she returns home, she is attacked and killed by an invisible being when her timer reaches zero. Quinn announces a plan to leave with her younger sister Jordan and her father before being informed that she has violated the User Agreement. She researches the app, learns courtney and that similar things have happened to other users of the app, but are considered fake. Panicked, she buys a new phone, but finds that the countdown app has been cashed in. After being attacked by a demonic character, she meets Matt, whose countdown says he will die a few hours before Quinn. A priest they consulted, Father John, identified the demon as Ozhin. He theorizes that the curse can be broken if someone dies before their countdown stops or lives after. They prepare a war circle to protect them from Özhin`s attacks, but Matt is lured and killed by the Ozhinians who have taken the form of his younger brother. The film relies heavily on scary music to tell the audience when they should be scared – which, for me, is a cop out horror movie. If the only thing that scares in the scene is the sound effect, then don`t do it properly. Anyway, at the beginning of the film, it`s clear that Courtney is going to die that night. She gets in the car with her boyfriend, apparently far too drunk. She then decides that she is leaving and when she goes out, she receives a notification from the countdown app that says she has broken the user`s contract.
The user agreement says that we must accept our destiny and not use the knowledge of the application to try to change it, otherwise we will be chased by the demon Ozhin. In a funny twist, the trailer for the film, released over the summer, inspired an app designer, Ryan Boyling, to recreate the demonic watch in real life. Yes, it has a user agreement. No, he doesn`t really know when to die (at least I hope so). But just like in the film, “countdown” went viral; It is currently the number one entertainment app on the Apple App Store. In “Countdown,” an app tells users exactly when they`re going to die. Countdown is a 2019 American horror film directed by Justin Dec and starring Elizabeth Lail, Jordan Calloway, Talitha Bateman, Tichina Arnold, P.J. Byrne, Peter Facinelli, Anne Winters and Tom Segura. The plot follows a group of people who discover a mobile app that correctly tells their users when they will die.
Released in the United States on October 25, 2019 by STX Entertainment, it received negative reviews and recorded $48 million worldwide. Quinn takes the wounded Jordan to the hospital where she learns that Sullivan is harassing other employees. .
