Waste of money, cliché and predictable.

Most horror movies are predictable when it comes to trying to make you jump, this is not one of those movies.

Watchable with a very predictable finale.

Overall enjoyable, minus that rant mentioned above.

Despite being predictable it has a few moments of some humor, the actors are not incompetent and it's well filmed.

It was very scary and intense most of the time and one, two scenes were pretty shocking and disgusting.

You get 'Countdown'This is the second, and also worst movie i've seen this year.

Unfortunately, the girls and guys menaced by this evil app are pretty bland.

An unexpected good scare.

Just a very boring adaptation.

However, its dull in many passages.

A combination of funny moments and unexpected scares .

Honestly came to this with pretty low expectations and because I was bored.

Entertaining jump scare formula .

Kind of boring

Entertaining .

It picks a contemporary setting, features an array of characters who feel guilty about the death of a family member, repetitive jump-scares, a sexual harassment angle (added for relevance), comedy that doesn't blend well with the storyline, and mediocre performances.

Just a great big predictable ugh.

Ok movie, and I must say that I slightly enjoyed it because again, I love horror novi genre.

Every line is screaming cliché, demons attacking from behind as always, main characters getting distracted by dead relatives in a life or death situation, when someone sees scary visions they stay and try to find out what it is...

A 90 minute entertaining hoot for Halloween when all you want is a supernatural scare.

Well I really enjoyed the film tbh, for a PG13 it's pretty scary, good storyline, lots of jump scares and a couple of unexpected twists, I would recommend giving it a watch if you have an hour and a half to kill and fancy being a little bit spooked 😁

I enjoyed it.

Countdown is an entertaining horror movie that is best enjoyed with some friends around Halloween.

Not scary enough, but a very enjoyable film .

I am so glad i went to see this film tonight,i really enjoyed it, i hope their will be a countdown two out soon.

Don't waste your time with this one, I'm sorry to say.

Don't waste your time.

Incredibly predictable .

What a waste of time .

The action unfolded in a predictable, by-the-numbers fashion.

Man this movie was so boring I just went home.

Despite the silliness of the story I think this movie is slightly better than it´s current score (5.3). It´s entertaining and the acting is actually pretty good.

If you're bored, give it a try!

It was a mess but an entertaining one.

The characters were believable and funny, however ending somehow predictable.

Quite enjoyable,for all final destination lovers,this is the one.

Towards the ending the movie lost its all dark humor and comedy and becomes classical boring horror movie, and in the after credit there it is, again dark humor.

I give it a solid 7/10 well worth the watch.

I somewhat enjoyed it.

The scares are predictable, unoriginal, and come exactly when you would expect them.

Didn't have to go there, it's becoming cliche.

Two peripheral characters added an unexpected comic appeal for a "horror" movie.

Great Concept and Plenty Unexpected Jumpscares .

Coupled with bright, clean, pretty, and tight filmography, with humors sprinkled in here and there, it is an enjoyable, fun, and thrilling horror movie "lite" experience, perfect for getting into the Halloween mood.

Really enjoyed it.

Having to endure Dr Sleep the previous night it was nice to get back on the horror track with this enjoyable original film.

if ya bored, nothing's on, this will pass the time!

That aside, I found the film to be extremely entertaining.

Good acting; Story behind is unnecessary and boring; Jumpscars are predictable; Movie was too short in my opinion; Soundtrack is not bad.

Her strong performance is what makes the movie worth watching and elevates it from the pack.

That is what makes it interesting, it can be easily associated with real life apps that may at least bring excitement into our lives instead of boredom for just thinking about the possibility this movie presents us, are those app real?

I'm sure "Countdown" passes as an at least an average type of horror entertainment among the mainstream & the younger audiences, but you better believe me it's bland, boring, predictable and very, very uninspiring.

Hands down one of the worst movies ever.

Waste of time .

I enjoyed it the whole way through.

What really soured me on this film was the formulaic ending.

This film was bland, predictable, cliched, and just flat out bad.

Nice little entertaining horror flick.

Yes, the story is silly but enjoyable .

Waste of time .

but there were a few drops in there, so you could clearly tell it was empty.

A few hours later I ended up coming back to it because i would rather subject myself to being bored with a few spare laughs and things to gawk at and make fun of than being bored alone in my mothers basement.

with an empty syringe.

Predictable jump scares.

You can completely avoid this film, which really felt like a countdown to when you gladly can leave the theater.

The only thing this movie made me feel was contrite for being dragged along to watch it.

It's predictable tale, sort of hidden killer, and silliness that filed away the edge of the movie and thus takes away from the atmosphere they created.

The start was ok, the idea was pretty good, but then it just became predictable horror fare.

Boring .

A boring, predictable plot that should have gone straight to free to air tv.

non-existantThis is a bad mix between "Final destination" and "Truth or dare", except thos 2 movies were much betterComplete waste of time.

So it was worth the watch.

Countdown is not a good film, but it is not bad either, just entertaining and full of jump scares.

Worth the watch .

[99.99% spoiler free]For some reason or another, I always find 'techy demons' quite fascinating (to say the least) and that's the main reason I chose to saw this movie.

Until the antiwhite propaganda came about.

High pace and just about the right length likeable leads whilst forgettable an enjoyable 90 minutes I don't regret spending on this film.

Worth watching once, if for no other reason than to be able to tell your horror movie buff friends you've "seen the one about the countdown app".

bit predictable at times, clichés throughout.

It was very suspenseful and entertaining!

Absolutely dumb and a complete waste of time.

This is the worst movie I've seen in a very long time.

Entire film quite slow and full of boring overuse scene!

No, it wasn't perfect, and some of the acting was crappy, but all in all, it was entertaining and enjoyable.

A entertaining popcorn horror .

Maybe simple storyline but if you watch until the end the movie are very interesting, very entertaining and shock me almost every horror scene in the movie.

Lame and predictable .

So we suspensefully wait to see what will become of this intriguing situation that has presented itself.

For PG13 it's good.. but predictable .

I enjoyed it.

Unfortunately it was rather predictable.

An enjoyable if unoriginal horror romp written and directed by Justin Dec.

I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it.

It just made the whole thing feel like a waste of time & stupid.

It can be thrilling and quite entertaining if you go with an open mind and not expecting anything more than a regular horror movie.

Surely this boring film will have a sequel!

The story was predictable thought the execution was great.

Entertaining Horror Film .

Good suspenseful horror movie .

If you're looking for an entertaining Saturday night movie to stream for 90 minutes, it's a solid choice.

Don't waste your time...

I've seen worst movie.

Nobody will mistake this for a great movie with superb acting, but what this movie is, is good enough to be entertaining, and scary enough for horror junkies to appreciate for the 90 minutes that you're in there.

An entertaining horror flick on the pulse of time .

Lame repetitive story, extremely bad acting, with exception for Segura (the tech guy), he's awesome.

sure, it's kind of predictable and a little scary here and there, but i found it an enjoyable way to spend some time.

Plot holes, uneven storytelling, constant jump scares, questionable acting, and a pointless #metoo subplot are what hold this film back.

However, the movie itself well the storyline is quite predictable.

Like I said, I tend to be fond of this genre, so while I see so many problems with the movie, and it's a junkfood horror flick, I still enjoyed it.

What A Shower of **** Boring And Predictable.

It has NO storyline and is super predictible, just jump scares.

My sister really doesn't like demon movies, but she said she really enjoyed it.

What you will get however is a contemporary, entertaining and gripping horror movie.

The film has some pretty intense moments throughout and is very fast-paced.

Plenty of good scares though predictable.

I wish the film was on longer though,but well worth the watch...

"Countdown" has been (generously) dipped in the holy pot of all mainstream horror cliché's & then dredged in a pile of every other routine story and/or character arc shticks.

Too slow and too many boring jump scare scene!

Anyway, the main dynamic between characters which i would expect is the family dynamic is boring and not really necessary.

Unoriginal, boring and full of cliches, it's not even funny.

The jumpscares are predictable and not scary at all, character development is boring at best and the consistency of the story seems non existent.

Alot of cliche stuff!

Don't waste your time.

But it was overall a good little horror, well put together and entertaining.

Don't waste your time watching this trash, totally garbage and dumb.

Overall 3/10, save your time for the videos criticising this movie, would probably be more engaging and keep your braincells intact.

It was slow, predictable and boring.

the cast had a mix between enjoyable and wasted personalities.

The plot is a total cliché just in a new "countdown app" coat.

A lot of the script, especially lead ELizabeth Lail's personal struggles and backstory which takes up half the time, is really predictable and kinda boring.

Little to no character development, a very predictable storyline, lots of cliches, random additional characters, and an overall boring plot.

worst part is, if it was completely empty you probably wouldn't notice, assuming it's a clear liquid.

Like Final Destination, it's entertaining.

Naturally, nothing happens to them.

I thought it was scary, suspenseful, and also had some comical moments.

I can attest that this movie will scare you, so if you are looking for a good date night movie it's worth watching it.

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

It's not stellar or out of this world, but the cast is enjoyable in their roles.

An uninteresting mish-mash of various horror flicks (such as Happy Death Day, The Final Destination, It Follows, and many more) is what Countdown turns out to be.

It is entertaining and thrilling.

The plot is predictable and at some points borderline nonsensical.

I can guarantee this one is entertaining.

Quite intense .

Dont waste your money or time .

But the film gets boring extremely quick, it reminds me of one of those cheesy Annabelle movies.

Too predictable...


Very interesting and entertaining to watch.

I kept checking my watch during the 90 minutes hoping for it to end as it is dull and the would be scares are so drawn out.

but if you are in the mood for an entertaining popcorn movie, as I was when I watched this, you could do much worse.

Countdown (4.2) (42%) - Predictable and comedic (not in a good way) .

This story is quite intense!

My main gripe with the movie is the cliche filled story.

entertaining .

This is one priest whose sermon we wouldn't fall asleep through.

"Countdown" is an entertaining horror film for fans of "Final Destination".

Not the best horror movie of 2019, but definitely enjoyable to watch around Halloween.

A film for a bored sunday afternoon.

The plot, the acting, predictable and makes no sense even for a horror movie.

Save your money.

Compelling from the start it races along, throughly recommended.

(3) a nurse is injecting a patient with an empty syringe.

It was an enjoyable way to kill 90 or so minutes and I would watch a sequel.
