The countdown to STX Entertainment (2019) has a mid-credits scene, so we dedicate what`s going on and what it means. Over the years, there have been many horror movies inspired by technology, especially mobile phones. In Countdown, the premise focuses on a specific app that tells users when they`re going to die. However, if they modify their actions based on the information provided to them by the app, they violate the user agreement and are tortured by a haunting figure until they die. At a party, teenage Courtney is persuaded by her friends to download Countdown, an app that seems to predict how long a user will have to live. Courtney is shocked that she only has 3 hours left to live. After Courtney avoids getting into a car with her drunk boyfriend Evan, she receives a notification that she has violated the « Terms of Service. » When she returns home, she is attacked by an invisible entity and killed when her timer reaches zero. At the same time, Evan crashes and a branch passes right to where Courtney would have been sitting. In Countdown, an app tells users exactly when they`re going to die. In any case, it is clear at the beginning of the film that Courtney is going to die that night. She gets in the car with her boyfriend, who is obviously way too drunk. She then decides that she is leaving and when she leaves, she receives a notification from the Countdown app that she has violated the user agreement. The user agreement states that we must accept our fate and cannot use the knowledge of the application to try to change it, otherwise we will be chased away by the demon Ozhin.
Yes, it has a user agreement. No, he doesn`t really know when you`ll die (at least I hope so). But just like in the movie, « Countdown » went viral; It is currently the number one entertainment app on Apple`s App Store. .
