A thriller involving an ongoing unsolved mystery in Alaska, where one town has seen an extraordinary number of unexplained disappearances during the past 40 years and there are accusations of a federal cover up.
In the early 70's, Commander Nathan Walker, Captain Ben Anderson and Lieutenant Colonel John Grey are assigned in a secret mission to the Moon to protect the USA from USSR using detectors. Nathan and Ben land on the Moon in the Liberty module while John stays in orbit in the module Freedom. They collect rock samples and bring them to the Liberty. They also find footprints and the body of a Soviet cosmonaut on the moon. Soon they hear weird noises and they find that they are not alone in the satellite. Written by

The film claims we've never gone back to the moon, failing to explain how the found footage used to make the movie was retrieved. - The footage is presumably a raw copy of the transmissions between the Lunar Module and NASA. It is plausible that ground control would keep closer tabs on this special mission than the regular Apollo-missions. See more »

Good historical fiction, not a fantastic horror film
I admit, it is not terribly scary, but it uses a fairly original (comparatively speaking) filming mechanic in the found footage style and is, aside from the space aliens, a believable film with good acting, very few historical inaccuracies, mostly natural dialogue and a good bit of tension. Being admittedly biased in that I was more concerned whether they would remember that the astronauts had to depressurize as to not get the bends than whether it was frightening, I may give it a higher rating than most would think it deserves but I most definitely enjoyed myself.
All in all it was a nice historical fiction about finding something sinister on the moon because of a continued space race, assuming you can respect a more minimal film on a modest budget. Not really for a fan of horror movies. Perhaps if someone could create a genre name for "historical science fiction/tense drama/horror" (in that order), a "histscifitdramhor" if you will.
