(2019) (Elizabeth Lail, Jordan Calloway) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror: A nurse must contend with the discovery that a countdown app on her phone is indicating the actual time of her upcoming death.
- Courtney (ANNE WINTERS) is a teenager who's somewhat unsettled to learn -- via a phone app called Countdown -- that she has only hours to live. She seems to dodge higher chances of that by refusing to ride home with her intoxicated boyfriend, Evan (DILLON LANE), but meets her demise at home by herself anyway via a supernatural encounter.
Evan ends up in a hospital where he's cared for by nurse Quinn Harris (ELIZABETH LAIL) who works for head nurse, Nurse Amy (TICHINA ARNOLD), and must contend with unwelcome sexual advances from Dr. Sullivan (PETER FACINELLI). But with surgery scheduled for his injuries and also having little time left according to the Countdown app, Evan's understandably nervous. As is Quinn, especially after Evan dies and she decides to try the app only to learn she has less than three days left.
She also discovers that the same holds true for her estranged younger sister Jordan (TALITHA BATEMAN), and thus Quinn goes to phone shop owner Derek (TOM SEGURA) in hopes that he can delete the seemingly irremovable app from her phone. It's there that she meets Matt Monroe (JORDAN CALLOWAY), a young man in the same predicament and they eventually make their way to Father John (PJ BYRNE) in hopes that he can help from a religious standpoint.
With her hours counting down, Quinn races against time to try to keep the app -- and the demon that's controlling it -- from killing her.
