Brand new trailer lands for creepy Apollo 18


The release date for Apollo 18 has been a bit all over the place this year. Originally scheduled for an April release, it was then put back to January 2012, however the US will get the movie now on September 2nd, with the UK following shortly after. A trailer for the found footage chiller has been doing the rounds for quite some time now, but just yesterday a brand new trailer has arrived with new footage to get the hairs on the back of your neck standing up.

Apollo 18 looks stunning, and is directed by Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego and, thankfully, features a cast of unknowns to add to the authenticity. Considering the massive popularity of found footage horror, I am shocked that no one had thoguht of this idea before as I couldn’t think of any better way to exploit the formula than by creating something which could have happened and turn it into something which could be real, if you want to believe in it enough. I am talking, of course, about conspiracy’s as there are rumours that the Apollo missions run by NASA  did not stop at 17 and , in fact, went on to number 20.

Conspiracy theories aside, this looks like a stunning horror and it’s gonna be something truly special went it arrives. Here’s a little more of that all important plot:

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
