Countdown

In our age of gadgets and high technology for a mobile app. Want to know how much you have left to live? Please! The joke at the party a group of friends installs an app called "countdown", and one girl reported that her life is 3 hours. Frightened, she sits in a car with a drunken boyfriend, but at the same time she kills an unknown force. The guy still crashed into a tree, is now awaiting surgery in the hospital and very nervous, because the application shows that he left to live a few hours. When he is found dead, nurse Quinn not a little frightened — she counted a little more than two days. The girl remained not so much time to figure out how this infernal app kills people.

Aspiring filmmaker Justin Dec I decided to experiment on the theme of the inevitability of death, which in fact pursues any person. Yes that only everything has its time. Of course, exactly this subject has very long complete all said the series "final destination," which managed to gain some status in the film, and then to bend gradually. But or two three films in the series turned out to be quite a quality, and very sorry intelligent development, not worked. Well and, accordingly, the film debut of Justin Deka — "countdown," also trying to play their cards on the field. And if you wish you can still remember many works, which were also released with the aim to repeat the success of the first movie series "final destination". Alas, but there is nothing more sensible in the moment and has released, well, a film by Justin Soundboard is also included in the number of those that was not able to reproduce the formula.

If not everyone, at least, many want to know the exact date of his death. Perhaps for in order to prevent it, well, or at least finish important things. The main character of "the countdown" download to myself on the phone very strange app that shows you what do we were just a few days. At first, the girl takes all this as a kind of joke, just another stupid app, which already heap. But once around her suddenly begin to die people who have downloaded this same app, it is frightened not in on the joke. To the same she has some very strange and frightening visions, which only led to struggle survival.

In General, it is to be noted here is practically nothing. "Countdown" is one of the most ordinary horror films. The Director just mixed the concept of a transmitted curse, but also pulled out the basis of the same "destination", in relation to the inevitability of death. It sounds everything seems to intriguing, Yes that only implement it too trivial. And if the beginning there are a couple of expressive deaths, and also at least some air of mystery, it is already the later stages of the film all this rolled into something completely illogical, well, and even just ill-conceived. The picture is diligently trying to scare its audience, time and again throwing up is extremely simple screamers. Of course it should say that couple of them perhaps even be successful, but nothing more. You in principle, even empathize with the main characters as they are written on the next level of cartons. Heroes of the same the Jordan Calloway is introduced literally in the middle of the story when doing that is incredibly awful and clumsy.

Will not go the image of another monster which is in multiple reflections and visions of the characters looked even a little klipova. But once that the babayka appeared in all its visual "splendor", I instantly remembered a hundred similar monsters that saw the vast majority of horror films. According to the fact the picture have nothing to offer the viewer, it is clearly not the mediocre that could remove the debuting Director, but let's just say, I saw and better with from same debutants. Ideas have tried to pick up on a possible high, but here to put it all in one box turned out work as in close it deformed acquired a crooked shape.

Remember earlier in the tales could be seen of the character, asking the cuckoo as he left? So that is, the cuckoo has gone through several stages of updates and became application smartphone. True to ask is not need — it will show how much is left to the owner of the smartphone, where the application was installed.

A young nurse Quinn Harris sets the type of application that counts down to her two small day. At first, Quinn refers to this counter lightly, however, when dies mysteriously one of the hospital patients, where it works, but he had installed the same she understand that it could be the next...

"Countdown" is a standard horror film, filled with the standard skimmer — here and the appearance of something creepy for the back of the hero/heroine, and the scenes when the Evil pretending to be someone she knew entices the victim, and then takes the dire form, and even such banal scenes as suddenly taken from out of the blue car, shoot down people who are just managed to survive.

In fact, Director Justin Dec was not offered the viewer anything new, but just changed the wrapper and gave Evil a mobile app. In the rest of the "countdown" is not much different from  Ouija or same "destination", or any other horror movie where no man, but Something to hunt for their victims. Here by the way, I remember another horror film, released in 2003 — "the Darkness comes" about the Tooth Fairy. Therefore, the "countdown" unique in its genre, not was he was just suggesting a slightly different scenario.

There is in the interesting chips — for example, trying to cheat the application or the advent of the program the phone — it looks quite interesting, but something more substantial film to not boast can.

Instead, it leaves this horror, which seemed to the beginning of horror with elements of silly Comedy with stupid priest, whose a person looks very absurd with his maniacal fascination with demons and a tattoo in the form of crosses and cartagenian aloud. And no less stupid seller of phones who believe it is important to talk about his plans for the evening...

The idea that the death of a person occurs on the schedule is obviously excerpted from"final destination", as well as the idea that if death to deceive, you can survive.

However, if "Paragraph" means of escape were made and were quite objective, then in "the countdown," all were not so obvious — don't fact that the death of one individual happened earlier than predicted the app, can stop a hell of a program. Maybe for one user and comes salvation, but that for all who have it installed — not fact.

Given the victim of many episodes, the presence of a typical skimmer, the combination of genres (in my view irrelevant in this case), I can say that  countdown — the film is fairly mediocre and no different from many of their own kind.

However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.

Pleasant viewing.

Mobile phones have become a headache for the writers of horror films with its very appearance — where the suspense, when in any wilderness you can dial 911 and call for help? When cell phones evolved into the smartphone, it turned out that "who we prevent — that we will": now on the screens one by others go films, where the fashionable gadget becomes a nuisance, and unlikely not the protagonist of the film (as in the recent Russian "Text"), or even the image of the event — entered in fashion by Timur Bekmambetov format "skinlife". However, you can do simply and make the villain not the phone and... the app. Sometimes this idea will turn out mediocre films — as "Android" ("App"). But sometimes, the creators of the full charge your smartphone and your imagination to create a very watchable tape — the new countdown.

Formally, the idea is primitive at best — the characters in the smartphone is put unkillable app that shows how much they left to live. Of the pros: the app is free, does not contain hidden advertising and a successful alignment could agadati you 50-60 years of a happy life. Of the minuses: the app weighs under 60 gigs (this alone — the real horror!), not removed the phone even when the... device replacement, and if we told you close to death, but wait not succeed. Yes still sends the annoying "push"messages at each attempt to cheat fate.

As often usual in modern horror, a film made by the author Justin Dekom on a short — we showed the plot in the prologue. At all unassuming stories from it turned out to make a real scary movie — with allusions to for too long we have left the franchise, "final destination". Really, how to avoid death, if it will come as on schedule, "right time" — though tub hide, even under bed? And if  the"destination" doom featured in the sinister shadow and the breeze, it does the "anti-hero" appears in all its glory — in the demon that pretending to be someone of the last heroes.

About horror rarely can you say that, but the evidence is clear: the "countdown" a good, intriguing script with unexpected twists and turns — death of heroes I just not expected. Another one bonus — bright cameo characters, such as is unreasonably optimistic, the priest-exorcist (P. J. Abdul Kalam. Byrne you remember to a terrible scene in the cabin of acupuncture in the fifth part of the same "no destination") that are relevant in the era of struggle against harassment of unscrupulous doctor (a bit rasponi, Peter Facinelli of the infernal Patriarch in"Twilight" turned into an unhealthy copy of Alexander Malinin) and a crafty seller of gadgets in performed by comedian Tom Segura (by the way, not leave the credits, if you want to know what ended its history). The classic "Boo,"pugalki in stock but sometimes minimum means the authors are able to catch up with horror almost blue — for example, when we see one passes through a series of the booths in the toilet through the walls (as to remove? just remove the internal partitions in the booths!)

Which is especially valuable for  a"low genre" — sometimes the heroes have to solve moral dilemmas, like whether we sacrifice the life of another person for their own salvation — about how in the original "the ring."

All of the above does not negate the fact that  countdown — just hosted a horror movie about "the blonde in danger" without a very daunting acting and special ambitions, but it leaves a nice "horror aftertaste" and direct application to the sequel. Because even unkillable mobile app sooner or later need an upgrade.
