Apollo 18 (2011) Review:
Apollo 18 is the space version of this new wave of American horror found footage films that hope to use that filming method to make a stressful horror film with a “relatively” small budget (1/2 million here), such as Paranormal Activity, Cloverfield or The Last Exorcism.
Fortunately, this works pretty well here. The story takes the form of a documentary following the two cosmonauts into space, with its lots of claustrophia and space emptiness. The presence of an alien form is introduced gradually, but is never used extensively, to my biggest disappointment. Most of the horror is based around the psychological aspect of being stuck on the moon with the unknown. It works great and because the film is short and then remains captivating at all time.
But despite being entertaining and rather stressful at times, it is difficult to give Apollo 18 a higher rating because of its cheap aspect. It kind of feel like a bad creature movie, the kind that everyone loves despite admitting that they are crap. Here, we barely get to see the monsters, the scares are pretty cheap and the story surprise-less. Still, it has the basics of what we like to see in a horror film: tension and scary scenes, so I still recommend you give it a try.
