Moon based stalk/scare frenzy Apollo 18 has the intriguing premise of a secret lunar mission with unknown nasties attacking the astronauts, however despite a few well designed early teases the more we’ve seen of this film the more generic it’s looking.

Secret ‘found’ footage gimmicks and conspiracy craziness swirl around this but it won’t be until the 2nd of September that we get to see if director Gonzalo Lopez and producing partner Timur Bekmambetov can pull something surprising out of the shadows because Blair Witch in space isn’t doing it for me.

Three new clips have been released which contain a little new footage, and hint at a few interesting details that will be all important in creating the right atmosphere to scare our faces off.

Stand by for a cool glass of synopsis,

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon.  But in December of 1974, 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.
