COUNTDOWN Trailer (2019)
At a teenage party, a group of friends downloads the app ‘Countdown’ that predicts when the user will die. The teenager Courtney sees that she has just a couple of hours to live and does not accept the ride of her drunken boyfriend Evan.
She walks home but she is killed by a supernatural creature when the timer in her cellphone reaches zero. Meanwhile, Evan crashes his car at the same time as Courtney’s death and he goes to a hospital where the nurse Quinn Harris works. Evan divulges that he is scared to go into surgery since the app Countdown predicts that he will die at the same time of the surgery.
The doctors and nurses of the hospital decide to download the app and Quinn learns that she has only three days of life. When Evan mysteriously dies in an accident at the hospital, Quinn purchases a new cellphone and realizes that the app is also installed.
When she meets Matt Monroe at the parking lot of the store, she finds out that his death is predicted for a couple of hours before her and they team-up to look for a means to break the curse.
