Critic Consensus: Countdown may offer a few fleeting jolts for horror fans with barren queues, but it lacks enough wit or creativity to leave a lasting impression.

Critic Reviews for Countdown
The constant loud noises and jump scares of Countdown are only enjoyable for truly novice horror watchers.
We've seen these jump scares, and we've traveled this road many times before. It's competently made and isn't the worst way to spend an hour and a half, but it's also pretty forgettable.
It's pretty taut, pretty tense, and a lot of good, solid jump scares.
As proven by Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Final Destination 3 or the spunky Jessica Rothe in Happy Death Day, these fate-driven, high-concept horror flicks can be redeemed by a committed central performance. Countdown's Elizabeth Lail joins their company.
