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

I can guarantee this one is entertaining.

If you're bored, give it a try!

Very interesting and entertaining to watch.

Lame and predictable .

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

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.

It was slow, predictable and boring.

A combination of funny moments and unexpected scares .

Save your money.

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

I somewhat enjoyed it.

Surely this boring film will have a sequel!

Great Concept and Plenty Unexpected Jumpscares .

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

"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.

Naturally, nothing happens to them.

Kind of boring

However, its dull in many passages.

Plenty of good scares though predictable.

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

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

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

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.

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

Entire film quite slow and full of boring overuse scene!

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

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

Waste of money, cliché and predictable.

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

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

Just a great big predictable ugh.

Good suspenseful horror movie .

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.

It was a mess but an entertaining one.

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

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

It was very suspenseful and entertaining!

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.

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

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

Really enjoyed it.

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.

A entertaining popcorn horror .

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

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

the cast had a mix between enjoyable and wasted personalities.

An entertaining horror flick on the pulse of time .

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

I've seen worst movie.

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.

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

Don't waste your time.

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

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

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

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.

Entertaining .

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

That aside, I found the film to be extremely 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.

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

An unexpected good scare.

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

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.

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

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

bit predictable at times, clichés throughout.

I enjoyed it.

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

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.

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.

Alot of cliche stuff!

Too slow and too many boring jump scare scene!

Absolutely dumb and a complete waste of time.

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?

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.

Nice little entertaining horror flick.

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

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

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.

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

So it was worth the watch.

Waste of time .

The story was predictable thought the execution was great.

Watchable with a very predictable finale.

Man this movie was so boring I just went home.

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