Through a late night conspiracy broadcast, a frantic caller claims human beings from the future are living on the moon, controlling our every action. His call is cut short, but when a box of unusual materials arrives at the radio station several days later, filmmakers Matt and Sonny become involved and pursue the story, following the lead and chasing a set of hidden coordinates deep into Louisiana's Atchafalaya Basin. An enormous and dark underground facility reveals there may be more truth to the caller's story than believed, and quickly entangles the filmmakers in uncovering a history that was meant to be long forgotten. They narrowly escape with one unusual artifact, but soon find themselves in a threatening encounter with the bizarre and reclusive Church of Lunology, an organization very dedicated to keeping their mysterious secrets, and silencing anyone who stands in their way. Now hunted and on the run, they flee their homes only to encounter David James, a man who claims to ...Written by
The character David James was inspired largely by Steven Fishman, an American former Scientologist whose inclusion of Scientology's secret Operating Thetan levels in a court filing led to the first public confirmation by the Church of Scientology of its doctrines regarding Xenu and the Wall of Fire. And Richard C. Hoagland, an American author and proponent of various conspiracy theories about lost alien civilizations on the Moon and Mars. See more »
This is just another independent mock documentary film in the same vein as Blair Witch Project, District 9, This Is Spinal Tap, Paranormal Entity, Dark Side of the Moon, the list is endless. I fail to see anything other than another slightly above average film.
The acting for the most part is well thought out. However I thought some scenes were off the mark. Such as the film maker brandishing a pistol in the church? The motive was initially just curiosity and it would seem this changes in the documentary from that to "it is up to us to save the world".
The time and space paradox is never well explored. The plot is not that hard to follow but has some real silly scientific holes in it. For example; The part about "painting" over the moon photos, when anyone can clearly see the moon with the aid of a decent telescope or a pair of quality binoculars. Making a great deal of the film hard to swallow.
