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.
