Critic Consensus: Countdown may offer a few fleeting jolts for horror fans with barren queues, but it lacks enough wit or creativity to leave a lasting impression.

Critic Reviews for Countdown
As proven by Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Final Destination 3 or the spunky Jessica Rothe in Happy Death Day, these fate-driven, high-concept horror flicks can be redeemed by a committed central performance. Countdown's Elizabeth Lail joins their company.
An abject failure whose only virtue is its utter forgettability.
Can never be taken seriously enough to work as a conventional horror thriller, and it's never quite funny enough to be a great horror comedy, but it's got just enough eccentricity and self-awareness to entertain.
[Countdown] also doesn't seem to care about its characters, its premise or any sense of coherence, so there's no reason viewers should, either.
This isn't a subtle, moody film filled with a sense of unease; instead, jump scares are around every corner. If that's all you want from a horror movie, you'll have a very good time - and an elevated heart rate for its speedy 90 minutes.
