120+ Movies: Apollo 18

120+ Movies of 2011

Apollo 18Apollo 18 (02/09/11)

Decades-old found footage from NASA’s abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon.

I had high hopes for this film. Well not high-high, but there were hopes. Found footage, horror, scary and on the moon. Why not?

There was a lot of effort put into the film to make you believe that what you were watching was real. From the opening informational bits to the style of shooting. However the weak plot just killed the film. Major plot holes also annoyed me. There weren’t even any decent scares. Not for me. I feel let down!

Ah well, best to leave this kind of horror film off the moon and leave it to the REC’s and Paranormal Activities. Yes, we should have gone to see Kill List instead.
Rating: 1/5
