COUNTDOWN is a US horror thriller in which people are menaced by an app, downloaded onto their phones, which counts down to the moment of their death.

Threat and horror

There is strong threat as people are menaced by a sinister force during several scenes in which the intensity is sustained, and which also include sudden 'jump' scares.

Disturbing images

There are images of a demonic figure with grey, mottled features, shots of a pair of feet reversing at the ankles in gruesome fashion, and a finger pressing the eyeball of a corpse.

Sexual violence

There is the threat of a sexual assault when a man makes advances on a woman against her will and attempts to undo her clothing, before the woman's resistance prevails.

There is moderate violence and occasional bloody images. There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder bad language including uses of ‘bitch’, ‘biatch’, ‘shit’, ‘crap’, ‘asshole’, smartass’, ‘sons of bitches’, 'oh my God', ‘Jesus’ and ‘damn’. There are also moderate verbal sex references and references to drug overdoses.
