Countdown

Critics Consensus

Countdown may offer a few fleeting jolts for horror fans with barren queues, but it lacks enough wit or creativity to leave a lasting impression.

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (46)

  • As proven by Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Final Destination 3 or the spunky Jessica Rothe in Happy Death Day, these fate-driven, high-concept horror flicks can be redeemed by a committed central performance. Countdown's Elizabeth Lail joins their company.

    Oct 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • An abject failure whose only virtue is its utter forgettability.

    Oct 25, 2019 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • Can never be taken seriously enough to work as a conventional horror thriller, and it's never quite funny enough to be a great horror comedy, but it's got just enough eccentricity and self-awareness to entertain.

    Oct 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [Countdown] also doesn't seem to care about its characters, its premise or any sense of coherence, so there's no reason viewers should, either.

    Oct 24, 2019 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…
  • This isn't a subtle, moody film filled with a sense of unease; instead, jump scares are around every corner. If that's all you want from a horror movie, you'll have a very good time - and an elevated heart rate for its speedy 90 minutes.

    Oct 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Forget cheating death. In Countdown, it's the audience that really gets cheated.
