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!

In COUNTDOWN, 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.

The film stars Elizabeth Lail (“You“, “Dead of Summer”), Jordan Calloway (“Riverdale”, “Black Lightning”), Talitha Bateman (Annabelle: Creation, Geostorm), Tichina Arnold (“Survivor’s Remorse”, “The Neighborhood”), P.J. Byrne (Wolf of Wall Street, “Big Little Lies”), and Peter Facinelli (Twilight franchise, “Supergirl”).

It is written and directed by Justin Dec (Boats, Jennifer Lawrence is Coming) and produced by Zack Schiller (Escape Plan, Midnight Sun), John Rickard (Rampage, How to be Single), Sean Anders (Daddy’s Home, Horrible Bosses 2), and John Morris (We’re the Millers, Dumb and Dumber To).

The COUNTDOWN will begin in theaters on October 25, 2019.
