Goofs

It would have been impossible for the Russians to launch a moon mission and to have it not be noticed by numerous professional and amateur astronomers, as well as the US government itself. While the capsule and lander might have been tiny, people are constantly viewing the Moon and would have noticed the vehicle passing through the sightlines at some point during the orbit. See more »

The Scariest movie I've ever seen in my life
27 August 2011 | by SantanaJason92See all my reviews

I went to a private screening, not expecting much. It was one of those "found footage" films like the Blair witch project and Paranormal Activity.

I was expecting to be bored, but honestly after each passing minute in the film, it just got even more terrifying. Let me just tell you, this movie isn't just jump scenes, it's about the tension, and it delivers very effective shock and fright in some parts. It gets to the point where you are happy you're on earth. (Even though it's obviously fake).

I am very impressed with this film, I will rank it in my top 10 films of all time. And I'm not much of a horror movie goer. I recommend it.

10/10
