Countdown Trailer

"All we need to do is beat the clock by one second." STX Entertainment has debuted an official trailer for a psychological horror thriller titled Countdown, opening in theaters the weekend just before Halloween. The concept involves a killer app that claims to predict exactly when a person is going to die. A young nurse downloads the app, and it tells her she only has three days to live… But she also feels a mysterious figure haunting her. The movie stars Elizabeth Lail, Jordan Calloway, Talitha Bateman, Tichina Arnold, P.J. Byrne, and Peter Facinelli. This looks way too cheesy to be taken seriously, with all the usual tropes and horror cliches. Plus, that priest guy is really the worst. Might as well skip it, there's nothing to see here.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Justin Dec's Countdown, direct from STX's YouTube:

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 that she only has three days to live. With time ticking away and death closing in, she must find a way to save her own life before time runs out. Countdown is both written and directed by American filmmaker Justin Dec, making his feature directorial debut after working for years previously as a production assistant. It's produced by Sean Anders, John Morris, John Rickard, and Zack Schiller. STX Ent. will release Dec's Countdown in theaters everywhere starting on October 25th this fall.

It's incredible how shallow stories that follow modern technology usually are ...

Here is the weird thing about this. The trailer looks hilarious due to the premise, but it's produced by Sean Anders. Sean Anders did the Daddy's Home movies, which are not great, but he did do Instant Family, which is super underrated. He also wrote Hot Tub Time Machine. Guys and Gals, I say let's give this a shot.

This has to be a comedy. Produced by Sean Anders? Tom Segura, P.J. Byrne, and Tichina Arnold in the cast? ...the premise itself!?
