Countdown was a fun little flick. I enjoyed it — there were some scare moments balanced with just enough humor to add to its overall balance.
In today’s world, we are all attached to our phones. They’ve become an extension of our hands. In Countdown, they become your own personal countdown to death.
Yes, there’s an app for that.
It’s a pretty short movie and they did a great job keeping the flow going. No boring moments here.
The part that appealed to me the most was their use of religious figures. Father John rocked the screen. He was awesome! I’ve never seen them take the route Countdown did. He listened to rap music in his study while smoking, and his passion was demons. He was too cool.
If you’re looking for a movie that won’t terrify but simply entertain you, try this one. I’ve got no complaints.
About The Peetimes: You have 2 choices for this very short movie. I highly recommend the 1st Peetime. The 2nd Peetime contains some character development that comes into play later in the movie.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Countdown. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Rated (PG-13) for terror, violence, bloody images, suggestive material, language and thematic elements
Genres: Horror, Thriller
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
