“COUNTDOWN” a new free app that appeared in the iOS App store only a few weeks ago has already been downloaded over 6 million times. Mysteriously, after climbing to the #1 spot in the iTunes App Store, the app was pulled down from the store. And then less than a week later, it returned; shooting right back up into the app charts. What is it? Why is this creepy app such a viral sensation?
Inspired by the upcoming STXfilms release, Countdown, the app was actually created by an excited horror film fan – and once it’s downloaded, it gives users a creepy countdown to represent their time left to live. People are absolutely obsessed with this macabre concept!

Look for Countdown to arrive in US theaters this Friday, October 25th. Today, Dread Central is pleased to share two new clips from the film. Check out the first one embedded at the top of the article and the second one below (followed by the film’s synopsis and trailer).
When a young nurse (Elizabeth Lail) downloads an app that claims to predict exactly when a person is going to die, it tells her she only has three days to live. With time ticking away and death closing in, she must find a way to save her life before time runs out.
Countdown is written and directed by Justin Dec.
