At a party, teen Courtney is convinced by his friends to download Countdown, an app that seems to predict how long a user still has to live. Courtney is terrified that she will have only three hours of life. After avoiding getting into a car with her drunk friend Evan, Courtney receives a notification that she has broken the «user contract.» When she returns home, she is attacked and killed by an invisible entity when her timer reaches zero. At the same time, Evan crashes and a tree branch passes directly where Courtney would be sitting. STX Entertainment Countdown (2019) has an average credit scene, so we can break what`s going on and what it means. Over the years, there have been many horror films inspired by technology, especially mobile phones. In the countdown, the premise focuses on a specific application that tells users when they die. However, when they modify their actions based on the information given to them by the application, they violate the usage agreement and are tortured by a haunted character until they die. In a fun turn, the trailer for the film, released this summer, inspired an app designer, Ryan Boyling, to reproduce the demonic watch for real. Yes, it has a usage agreement. No, he doesn`t really know when you`re dying (at least I hope). But just like in the film, «countdown» went viral; It is currently the number one entertainment app on the Apple App Store.
Director Justin Dec still has 40 years to live. At least that`s what he says about an app inspired by his first feature film, Countdown. «I know it`s a fun game.

Its countdown app says it broke the usage agreement. The restaurant`s lights go out before it is attacked by the demon. Quinn takes Jordan to the hospital, where she learns that Sullivan is also harassing other employees. When she realizes that she could kill him before her arrival to end the curse, she attacks him, but he is saved by Ozhin, who recognizes what she is doing.
