A potentially cool "found footage" flick that is desperately in need of a lot more brains ... or a lot more silliness.

The movie builds up to a mystery that it never does much to resolve, with its big set piece reveal consisting mostly of a couple of rocks moving.

The 'found footage' horror movie Apollo 18 recycles the premise of The Blair Witch Project on the moon and still manages a few good scares.

"The cheap frights don't deliver, the performers bring no pathos and the gimmick behind "Apollo 18″ flat out does not work."

It's impossible to recommend Apollo 18 to anyone but the most staunch found-footage fans. The film fails every requirement of a tense and enjoyable time at the theater.

"Apollo 18" is another dud in a genre that should have stopped before it got out of hand.

Feels like nothing more than an attempt to cash in on a trend, and it's a textbook example of how not to do that.

An astonishingly incompetent and interminable piece of work...

Apollo 18 is a mercilessly dull movie that just doesn't make much sense. It's light on thrills, and the found-footage gimmick works against the tension.

The REAL reason why we never built bases on the moon by 1999 . . .

if you can push past the suspension of disbelief, it's a pretty eerie ride

Movies with 'found footage' have become quite popular since the advent of 'The Blair Witch Project.' The authentic feel adds to the horror element as these movies unfold. (One great example is 'The Last Exorcism,' a sadly under-seen movie.)

An intriguing premise that never quite reaches liftoff.

There are a couple of moments here that are as marrow-freezing as anything in Blair Witch or Paranormal Activity.

A simple sci-fi horror with just enough scares to keep you interested.

I can only assume this movie is for people who know virtually nothing about the space program.

[It] really delivers a fun, tense experience.

Even as horror films go, this one is terrible indeed, lacking in the one element it would need to succeed on the most basic of terms: scares.

Apollo 18 has some nice ideas, some impressive effects work and a decent finale, but the first half is extremely dull and it's ultimately let down by frustrating sound design work, severe pacing problems and some incoherent editing.
