The Grim Reaper Gets Tech Savvy in the Trailer for Countdown

Death is coming at you through an app on your phone, in the trailer for STX’s upcoming horror film, Countdown.

Because there’s not enough things in the world out there trying to kill you, now there’s an App for that…Well, at least in this movie there is. Today brings the first trailer for Countdown, a new horror movie set to arrive just in time for Halloween:

The Final Destination vibes are strong in this trailer, with a touch of The Ring to go along with it. Even so, it feels like a bit of a tough sell. It’s a goofy premise, but unlike movies like Happy Death Day, it’s not taking advantage of the silly idea and is trying to play it a bit too straightforward. Still, it could be a fun jump scare film for the holiday. What do you think?

In COUNTDOWN, when a young nurse (Elizabeth Lail) downloads an app that claims to predict exactly when a person is going to die, 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 hits theaters on October 25, 2019.
