Countdown FSK: Age approval for the new horror movie

 The horror film countdown started in America in October. Despite predominantly negative reviews, the film was able to generate a fairly stable box office and thus seems to arrive better with the viewers, than the critics. Here you will learn the German theatrical release and the age rating. Countdown is the directorial debut of director Justin Dec and is about an app that supposedly displays the exact time of death of the user. Although many people download the app, they all consider it a fake. But when the first people die just when their countdown expires, some people come behind it.
The doomed people try to escape their fate by canceling dangerous ventures, but then they are killed by a demon who grabs users who disobey the app's terms of use. Nurse Quinn, who first realizes that something is wrong with the app, is trying to find a way to outsmart the app and extend her remaining two days.
Despite bad reviews, countdown in the United States was a success. With a budget of $ 6.5 million, the horror movie grossed 35 million. In Germany, Countdown will appear on January 30, 2020. The FSK has now announced the age rating of the film.
Viewers over the age of 16 are allowed to watch the film, children aged 12 and over are allowed to go to the cinema accompanied by their parents. However, the trailer to Countdown shows that the film is not necessarily suitable for children. No wonder then that the FSK has decided on a recommendation from 16 years. Countdown is thus released both in America, as well as in Germany from 16 or 17 years.
