Trailer Trash: Apollo 18

Not much to say on this one. Looks pretty interesting, to be sure. The idea of a horror movie set on the moon is fresh one. But, I can't see this making more than the tiniest of ripples. With Cloverfield, Paranormal Activity, Diary of the Dead, and Paranormal Activity 2 coming out in recent years, the "found footage" sub-genre is getting pretty stale. Also, since it's revealed that no evidence of the supposed 18th trip to moon was ever found, we already know the ending. Way to ruin whatever surprise there might have been. Thanks guys.

  1. Looks like a cool new take on the whole "found footage" genre, but overall probably going to do nothing new with it. Same scares as usual.
