"Countdown" is a sci-fi action tale based on a classic "Twilight Zone" episode that revolves around a group of astronauts who land on a planet only to find a crashed spaceship and corpses that eerily resemble their own. They then must piece together where they are and whether they might in fact already be dead. The episode, titled "Death Ship," was written by featured "Twilight Zone" scribe Richard Matheson ("I Am Legend"), who based it on his own short story published in a sci-fi magazine a number of years earlier.
