Frequent readers of this site know that I’m a big fan of “found document” horror movies, and Apollo 18 certainly has an awesome premise working for it. But while I think the movie looks suitably claustrophobic and creepy, I’ve actually been hearing a lot of negative buzz, which I’ll admit is a bit off-putting. Movies like this are very hit-and-miss, and even the slightest bit of early bad publicity could be an indicator that it’s going to stink. But I’m so damn intrigued by “the last ten minutes” that I’ll still watch this at some point, if not in theatres.
Apollo 18 blasts off September 2, 2011.
