Apollo 18 is a pseudo-documentary type horror/thriller that frankly I will not be seeing in the theatres. This is a renter for me, so that I can fast-forward through all the scary scenes. That’s what I did with The Fourth Kind, and it still scared the living crap out of me. The trailer for Apollo 18 is well-done, but I would not have put the statement in the beginning saying that the footage has not been altered. It’s pretty obvious that this was made for a movie. We are not getting a look at top-secret NASA videos or anything. Maybe that does it for people to think that this is real, but not me. A storyline that involves being on the moon in a confined space with an alien being is enough for me to have nightmares. Official Synopsis:
Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972, was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.
Apollo 18 is in theatres April 22, 2011.
