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

At the beginning of the movie it is stated that Apollo 17 landed on the moon on December 7, 1972. This is actually the launch date of that mission. Apollo 17 landed on December 11, 1972. See more »
Fate has ordained... the men who went to the moon to explore in peace, remain on the moon to rest in peace.

What are the hell are you talking about?
I feel my thoughts... fragmenting.

Today (Sunday, Sept. 4), I was contemplating going to see Apollo 18. But first I read the reviews here. Upon seeing so many negative ones and so few positive ones, I knew I wanted to see it for sure since I liked The Blair Witch Project and both Paranormal Activity movies. That being said, it was just about what I expected and I liked it a lot. It could have been better, but I wasn't disappointed. I thought the cast was very good. So if you liked previous "found or leaked footage" movies such as Blair Witch Project or the Paranormal Activity movies, don't miss this one! If you're not sure, wait until it comes out on DVD and rent it at Redbox for $1. It's worth a lot more than that!
