Trivia

In some way, there was a real Apollo 18 during the year 1975. Named ASTP (Apollo-Soyuz Test Project), the mission was the first docking of spacecrafts built by different nations. The American crew included one of the seven Mercury program astronauts, Deke Slayton (the one who had never flown) and the Russian one Alexey Leonov, who was the first man to "walk in space."

Goofs

Quindar tones (the famous "beeps" that are heard during radio voice transmissions from Houston) are heard in the film. However, the actual Quindar tones of Apollo were only audible to Earth-based listeners of the transmissions; astronauts did not hear the tones. See more »

Quotes

much better then thought it was going be
2 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Seen this now, i don't know why, I have been avoiding this one over the year. I was expecting it to be really dull and boring movie..

It was not as boring as I thought it was going to be, well start of slow like all the other found footage movies then gets going before the half hour mark.

I found really enjoyable for most of part of the movie, there was decent amount of Jumps scene in this movie. some jumps scene worked and some missed the mark a little.

The acting was really good from small cast crew, the ending was really predicable.

As I had low expectation of this movie, I found it much better then thought it was going be, not one of best Found footage movies, Decent movie for this genre 5 out of 10
