Product Description

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.

4.0 out of 5 stars More clever than frightening 26 May 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Cannibal Holocaust: Ruggero Deodato's New Edit [Blu-ray has a lot to answer for. As the first of the 'found footage' films it has spawned more than three decades worth of movies, given a boost in the arm in the 90s with Blair Witch Project [Blu-ray] and more recently Paranormal Activity [Blu-ray], to which the success of both probably gave us Apollo 18.

It's a clever premise and whereas normally these films can be done on the cheap (Blair Witch is effectively a bunch of kids running around a forest with a video camera), this surely had quite a substantial budget with all the sets and effects.

The most impressive thing about Apollo 18 is the quality of the footage. It all looks authentically 1970s, even down to the colour saturation and the lines on the TV screens. Genius! Less impressive is its desire to capture the verisimilitude of a moon landing. To do this, it's necessary for minutes and minutes of unnecessary, eventless, one could even saying boring footage. That creates a degree of realism but costs the narrative dear. The result is a horror movie that is more clever than frightening. You experience it in the brain, not gut. That said there are some wonderfully creepy moments, especially when they first discover the Soviet lunar module.

One final point (with an obvious spoiler). If this is supposed to be a found footage movie and a lot of that footage was done on hand cameras (so not broadcast back) and it all ends terribly for the crew... how could the recordings have ever got back to earth to be uploaded?

3.0 out of 5 stars The Blu Ray Version. 10 Feb 2013
Format:Blu-ray
The film is not bad, nor is it great. More of a horror film than sci-fi.
I can't see the point in paying extra for a Blu Ray Disc. To get it to fit
in with real footage of the apollo missions the entire film is grainy, with
lines and jumps.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent filmaking - ok film 22 Dec 2011
By S. Haddow VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Depending on the expectations you bring to Apollo 18 it could be anything from 1 to 5 stars. My expectations were not overly high and I enjoyed it - but I don't think that for me it had any repeat-viewing appeal (i.e. I can watch a good movie three or four times in a few years). What they get absolutely right is the feeling that this is created from actual footage of a lunar landing. The various effects and distortions feel absolutely authentic, and overall the film does look like it takes place on the moon. The voice acting from mission control is equally perfect - and much of the acting does look like fly on the wall reality. With no spoilers - its also worth mentioning that Apollo 18 does not over do it's scares, relying mostly on brief glimpses, which for me worked well - but it's a courageous thing for a horror movie to do as a large part of the audience may well be hoping for a bigger pay off. For me what didn't work so well was that I don't feel the scares were exploited enough. I know it sounds like I'm contradicting myself - but I mean that not enough of a plot ever really developed to give the scary bits enough context. For example there was little sense of time running out even though the astronauts by definition had a finite supply of oxygen for example. There was also no sense that the alien presence had much intelligence even though for example flags were destroyed, suggesting some resentment of human presence on the moon. With more of a well defined plot, I think this would be a classic, but as it is, it is a very interesting piece of film making that may or may not float your boat.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blair Witch on the Moon 12 Sep 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dear oh dear oh dear. As a concept "Why didn't we go back" is such a cool idea with the right story this could have been such a good movie. Unfortunately the story is weak,the acting worse and the "Blair Witch" style simply irritating. If I was supposed to find this tense I didn't...I found it tedious,predictable & completely far fetched. I missed this when it was in cinemas and was quite disappointed that I did. I'm not anymore.

1.0 out of 5 stars Houston, this sucks..... 9 May 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Hooray, another found footage movie. Now while i'm for anything slightly original, this has to be the poorest movie I have seen in recent memory, and i've seen Troll 2.

Now, whilst that film is dire beyond belief, it kept me entertained (for all the wrong reasons). This movie, I had to come back to it three times to get to the end, because I just just couldn't stand the monotony of the whole proceedings.

Bottom line of the film is, Three men, go to the moon, have some fun for a while and say 'wow' at the earth.

One gets attacked after they find a body, and he turns nuts and gets a bit of red-eye.

That's the film, and because the acting is so unconvincing, makes the whole facade of the subject matter just laughable.

I couldn't find one thing to like about it, and what irked me the most, was that this got a cinema release, which is beyond me.

The thing is, the makers know that people are going to see this because of the space twist, but it's turgid, dire, boring stuff, and in my opinion one 2011's worst.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice Idea, terrible movie! 21 July 2012
By j.r
Format:DVD
Apollo 18 has a good concept, but is a failure as an entertainment. It's too clever for it's own good, trying to be a found footage film. It would have been better as a straight horror in space. This is a bad film, but if you're interested and you find it cheap enough, it's only 1hr 20mins long, so you're not wasting too much life to find out if you like it.
