Last Destination gets an unofficial smartphone reboot in a sluggish and completely unscary slab of schlock centered on an application that predicts your own time of death
J ust two days after audiences and critics turn off wicked Siri comedy Jexi, the smartphone has returned causing more difficulty regarding the giant screen in glitchy schlock horror Countdown, a Halloween launch devoid of tricks, treats and such a thing even vaguely near to an idea that is original.
By having a plot that cribs from significant amounts of other, better horror movies, Countdown ultimately owes an astounding financial obligation to 2000’s ferociously effective franchise starter Final Destination (in reality, the scariest thing concerning the whole endeavour may be a lawsuit fond of those involved). very nearly 2 decades later on, the conceit happens to be offered a tech update with a software that, once downloaded, will inform the consumer just how long they should live. After nursing assistant Quinn (You’s Elizabeth Lail) is met with someone whom warns her for the application’s IRL consequences, she irrationally decides to install it, and then be informed that she’s got simply three times left. Initially ignoring the software being a nasty prank, she actually is quickly plagued with visions, and begins to realise that the clock is really ticking.
