Countdown (2019)



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

All Critics (70) | Top Critics (18)

The constant loud noises and jump scares of Countdown are only enjoyable for truly novice horror watchers.

October 31, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

October 31, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The writing in this film is honestly embarassing.

October 29, 2019 | Rating: F | Full Review…

It's pretty taut, pretty tense, and a lot of good, solid jump scares.

October 28, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

October 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The final act is a groan-inducing slap to the face that had me wanting to throw popcorn at the screen in indignation.

October 25, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
