March 1, 2013
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.

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.)

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.

Apollo 18 is an intriguing, if never enthralling, fusion of period space-flight procedural, conspiracy theory, and monster movie.

[It] really delivers a fun, tense experience.

Will bring back a lot memories for anyone who lived through the space race.

Apollo 18 is presented with winning earnestness.

Director Gonzalo Lpez-Gallego exploits every possible tool within the confines of the genre and manages to create moments of true tension and genuine scares.

Every great horror movement eventually has to make it into space. Hellraiser went there, Jason went there, even Leprechaun went there. Now the found footage genre goes into space. Thank God too.

One giant leap for Big Brother ... scruffy, seat-of-the-pants filmmaking. The kind of thing you don't see much any more ... could do for Lopez-Gallego what 'Dark Star' did for John Carpenter.

Suffice it to say that the suspense works, and the obligatory sequel hook genuinely intrigues us with its possibilities rather than merely threatening a retread.

Audiences hoping for something in the vein of Paranormal Activity won't be disappointed, although the film can be faulted for sticking too close to a familiar formula.

More than just a lunar 'Paranormal Activity.'

Apollo 18 is a surprisingly intense, innovative and well-directed flick that made me jump out of my seat more than a few times!

Less concerned with depth and more about the strict skillfulness of capturing an increasingly queasy tone and mood. This is where it works.
