[QUOTE=l337k1ll4;29433431]What the fuck is this, a horror story that DOESN'T involve ghosts and [b]possessed people[/b]? I'm fucking in.[/QUOTE] I could be wrong, but it looked like the virus thing or whatever possessed them.
From the trailers I'm guessing it's going to be some space infection. Looks a little like the Crazies and Event Horizon

[QUOTE=shatteredwindow;29457320]I could be wrong, but it looked like the virus thing or whatever possessed them.[/QUOTE] Yeah, but they can't just kill the possessed people by holding a cross in front of their face and shouting scriptures. It's unique, that's what I'm saying.

All these movies had aliens taking control/masquerading as humans.

This thread needs bump now that this movie just came out. I just came back from it, in my opinion it sucked and just used cheap jumps to try to scare you.
Considering how amazingly cheap this was to make ($5 million? Holy shit) I bet it's going to make a neat and tidy profit.
This movie looks like crusty asshole.
Good premise, but execution was 6/10
As I've said in about 3 threads already, the film was a messy pile of anus. 3/10. The amount of inaccuracies about the moon and space in general, the fact that EVERY scare was a cheap predictable jump scare, and they actually used the same scare twice (in the crater with the flashing torch), oooh I really wanted it to be good.
the movie was really pretty i thought, the story sucked. [sp] i think it would have been more terrifying if the aliens weren't space rocks and there was only one of them terrorizing the astronauts.[/sp]

I found the film to be very disappointing. It could have been fantastic, but it went for rather cheap scares and did not do anything interesting, novel, or original. I would give it like [B]1.5/4[/B] because while I did not hate it, I have nothing good to say about it either. I could talk a lot more about how inaccurate the science was, or how inherently flawed the premise was by way of storytelling, but I just want to warn people about this movie. If the premise of Apollo 18 interests you, please watch the Doctor Who episode entitled "Midnight," because it did well what I expected Apollo 18 to do: something interesting.

999
I saw it yesterday and enjoyed it. Sure it could have been done better, but for the most part it is a thrilling movie and the scares weren't really cheap if you think about it. The only scares I would consider cheap were ones you could see coming from a mile away (mostly still frame, low audio levels, little movement, duh). The story was decent. Now you can have fun thinking about how [sp]all the rocks on the moon are going to kill you[/sp]. The film was something that hasn't been done before, and it pulled it off well enough to be enjoyable. I'd give it an 8/10

Can't wait for the dvd to be out and someone to dub the whole film with the voices from moonbase alpha.
Uhuh it's real because a Chris loyd, Warren Christie and Ryan Robbins are totally not actors.....

This film was fucking terrible. If I went to watch it alone I'd probably have slept. Luckily I was able to spend my time in other ways. 1/10
