Apollo 18 trailer: Blair witch on the moon!
What if there was actually a mission to the moon that never made it back to earth? Apollo 18 explores the options if a secret mission to the moon back in 1974 (seriously, when did the seventies suddenly get popular? I lived through bits of the seventies and I looked really silly!) went horribly, horribly wrong. The movie was shot in mockumentary style, with lots of "found footage".
A website that specializes in conspiracy theories stumbles across footage of the classified Apollo 18 mission.
If you google around a bit, you'll find that even in real life there are some pretty rabid believers in Apollo 18's secret mission and the alien they brought back (called Mona Lisa no less).
I am actually a bit of a fan of director Timur Bekmambetov, ever since I saw Night Watch and Apollo 18 doesn't disappoint. First bit is rather slow, and because of the "found footage" a lot of the action is hard to follow and the sound is sometimes just crap.
BUT If you like conspiracies (and I do) and you like found footage movies like Cloverfield or Paranormal activity (yep!) this is a movie I'd recommend. Basically, this is Paranormal Activity or The blair witch project on the moon, directed by Timur Bekmambetov], so definitely well worth the watch.
