WHAT I LIKE?
Countdown is actually a good thriller and horror flick that gave Final Destination a modern approach through a Mobile App thing. It may sound a little bit weird but I am impressed on how the Director pulled off some amazing plot material out of this concept. Well, the story line is simple. People download the app on random days and the creepy and scary part is that they will know their last days on earth – I mean the exact years, days, hours & seconds. The craziness starts from there. I really like how Countdown compiled some solid jump out scares and disturbing scenes as it gear towards a solid climax. Countdown maybe a conventional horror thriller but this is surely way better in terms of execution and cinematography. Death scenes are staged well. Musical Scoring is highly-impressive. More than a good plot and technicalities, the lead casts (though not so famous & more or less unpopular to us) were able to deliver some impressive performances especially with Elizabeth Lail. For me, Countdown is best enjoyed over a round of popcorn and soda with good friends finding some good mediocre-time-killer horror stuff.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Me expecting this to be the next Hollywood’s trashy Horror Film is somehow helpful in making me like and appreciate this film afterwards. It may not be as classic and entertaining as the other movies of the same genre, but this is surely a good addition in the list.
