The found-footage horror genre requires an unusual amount of give and take between filmmakers and their audience, with receptive viewers using their imagination to fill in the blanks that teasingly lie just beyond the camera's narrow viewfinder. Apollo 18 boasts a novel setting and a nicely conspiratorial vibe, but suffers by its tendency to reveal too much too soon. Told via a combination of surveillance footage and artfully cruddy 16mm, the film follows a final covert moon landing, with its crew tasked to set up cameras in the ominous interests of national security. As the astronauts deal with a malfunctioning capsule, a series of unusual events suggests that the lunar population is a number greater than two. Director Gonzalo L�pez-Gallego makes fine, spooky use of the claustrophobic interiors and vast desolate exterior (a strobe-lit sequence set in a dark crater is destined to bring on the whim-whams), aided by a terrific sound design and some creepily invasive jump-scares. (Remember, astronauts: always check your helmets.) Unfortunately, the promisingly ominous mood of the film's first half gets diffused with the decision to show what exactly is out there knocking on the airlock, a revelation that starts out hard to swallow and quickly becomes, well, pretty silly, frankly. Although the originality of the premise and the downbeat '70s ending ensures that fans of the genre will still find much to like about Apollo 18, a less concrete menace could've made it soar. --Andrew WrightSee all Product Description
A very bad choice. Was expected a real secret landing on the moon.Published 13 months ago by Jean Campbell
Interesting concept that poorly executed. What if there was Apollo 18 and something went so negatively wrong that we were not informed. Such as moon cooties. Read morePublished on Nov. 9 2013 by bernie
Very disappointed by this movie :
1. Dull and simplistic scenario which has no great interest, rather stupid.
2. Poor quality of the picture, changing often format. Read more

The reviews for this movie had been pretty poor, though their official website had some fairly interesting looking trailers to add to the mix. Read morePublished on April 20 2012 by Martin Foster
