The horror goes on in the film “Countdown” from an app. It is able to predict the death date of the respective user to the second. Can you still make plans?
So-called computer apps are already available for almost all areas of life: fitness and finance apps. Taxi and traffic apps. News and entertainment apps. Weather and workout apps. Sports and school apps. Meditation and mindfulness apps. Slimming and diet pills.
However, this new American horror film is about nothing less than an app that can predict the exact date of death for each user.
That’s what it’s about
The 90-minute “countdown” is said to have brought in more than $ 42 million at the box office worldwide with a budget of $ 6.5 million – the launch in the United States took place in October.
In addition, Quinn is haunted by a figure as dark as it is mysterious. Finally, the desperate Quinn meets Matt, a guy who, according to the countdown app, is no longer too long on earth.
Critics in English attested that Justin Dec’s first feature film was, among other things, a completely idiotic story – and that it was quickly forgotten. (Dpa / KT)
