"There's a reason we've never gone back to the moon."
Apollo 18 is as dull a "found footage" movie as I have ever seen, which is sad because the premise is one that could of brought about a lot of great originalities for the genre, but instead, this just chose to steal scenes fr...

A great concept with a poor execution. Sadly, the makers ambition outweighs their talent here.

Nice idea but awful execution. It had ideas from better films and failed to get anywhere near as good as them! Even at 80mins it felt way dragged out.

Apollo 18 is the story of astronauts going to the moon and they get attacked by weird space crab things and boom, that's the plot. It's also presented in the found footage perspective and by now I think it's time the found footage genre just take a 20 year hiatus. It's been overu...

It was in 1979 that the talented Mr. Ridley Scott struck cinematic gold with a science-fiction horror masterpiece. (If you are a living, breathing, human being, I'd expect you to know what film I'm referring to, so I won't bother to mention the title.) His message was in the ta...

Many films have tried to emulate the success of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, some more successfully than others, but few have failed on the same level as APOLLO 18. Transplanting the horror from the woods of Maryland to the moon of all places seems like an interesting idea on paper, ...

There's a reason we've never gone back to the moon.
Not that good. This film could have been like an episode of the X-files yet it was more dull than that. It had potential but really the film failed miserably in scaring the viewers or even explaining in detail certain things. ...

While running with an intriguing concept, Gonzalo López-Gallego's Apollo 18 ends up as a major disappointment.
75 minutes is all this film needs to wrap up a mystery on the moon, but when nothing highly amusing takes place, the story falls flat on its face. What this fi...
