But as the film says, she probably could have avoided all these problems if she had just read the user contract. Elizabeth Lail (known as Beck from the first season of You) is student nurse Quinn. She meets a young man who was the victim of the death at the hospital where she works. Although she gives him a rather captivating story, she downloads the app herself, stupid, and discovers that she has only a few days to live. When she has ended all her plans (uh-oh User Agreement broken), a demon of the PG-13 variety, disguised as a shadow, begins to follow her. At the hospital, Evan Meets Quinn, the main character (Elizabeth Hail), who is a nurse in the hospital. She tries to comfort Evan, who is due for an operation, on crutches and in a foot throw. Evan regrets Courtney`s death and is aware of his impending mortality, as the countdown app lets him die during an operation. As can be seen in the countdown trailer, the film follows young nurse Quinn Harris (Elizabeth Lail) who learns that she will die in a few days. Working with another countdown user who will soon die, Matt (Jordan Calloway), Quinn tries to understand how the app torments her users so that she can avoid the death of her younger sister Jordan (Talitha Bateman).
Although Quinn finally manages to save himself and Jordan and defeat the entity that turns on the app, the film ends with the sinister unveiling of the Countdown app, which receives an update and teases a sequel. Earlier than you can say “allow notifications”, a group of teens download the application of death and outro-gingms and restrictions to user agreements. It`s just an app! is one of them, which has already moved on to another form of recklessness. After canceling a weekend with her father and Jordan, Quinn receives a chilling notification from the app that she has broken her usage agreement. As with previous victims, she immediately begins to be persecuted by haunted forces that seem determined to torment all the time she has left. In “Countdown,” an app tells users exactly when they`re going to die. In Countdown, a patchwork of indible horrors that is now running in cinemas, a supernatural smartphone app turns a timer that ends the moment the user dies. This is a huge problem for a nurse, Quinn (Elizabeth Lail, Once Upon a Time), who activates the app and finds that she has only two days to live. Thus begins an odyssey that Quinn tries to erase, hack, and even fool the clock. We return to Evan, who crosses a hospital support area to avoid the operation, and we see that he gets the breach of the user agreement.
He sees a hooded figure behind him in the hallway, and when he looks back, he`s gone. The lights begin to twinkle and he flees into a stairwell. He sees an apparition of Courtney on the steps and gives her name, but when she turns around, her face has fallen and her eyes are yellow. The camera cuts the bottom of the stairwell and we see Evan fall with his phone. If you`re looking for some good scares that push the boundary of PG-13 without breaking it, “Countdown” has fun with its clever premise. It may seem strange in a decade, but as a product of its time — and as a comment at that time — it could be much worse. In a fun turn, the trailer for the film, released this summer, inspired an app designer, Ryan Boyling, to reproduce the demonic watch for real. Yes, it has a usage agreement. No, he doesn`t really know when you`re dying (at least I hope). But just like in the film, “countdown” went viral; It is currently the number one entertainment app on the Apple App Store.
In his own home, Quinn researches the app and watches a video about it and reads comments that argue the video as a fake.
