Consensus: A boring, suspense-free Paranormal Activity rip-off that feels long even at just 90 minutes.

David Edelstein
New York Magazine/Vulture

It's 80 minutes of dead air.

Eric D. Snider

The source of the creepy events, when it's finally revealed, is profoundly dull, like a forgettable episode of The X-Files or Fringe.

Scott Weinberg

A potentially cool "found footage" flick that is desperately in need of a lot more brains ... or a lot more silliness.

Toronto Star

Boredom sets in long before the last muted shriek. And who cares about the astros? We never get to know them anyway.

Mark Olsen
Los Angeles Times

The film takes a startlingly long time to rev up, and even at less than 90 minutes feels thin and at moments like it is playing for time.

Will Leitch

The movie builds up to a mystery that it never does much to resolve, with its big set piece reveal consisting mostly of a couple of rocks moving.

Joel Brown
Boston Globe

For most horror fans it will be kind of a snooze.

Mike Hale
New York Times

Accomplishes something the world wasn't really crying out for: it recreates the tedium of watching the later Apollo missions.

The 'found footage' horror movie Apollo 18 recycles the premise of The Blair Witch Project on the moon and still manages a few good scares.

A great concept with a poor execution. Sadly, the makers ambition outweighs their talent here.

"There's a reason we've never gone back to the moon." Apollo 18 is as dull a "found footage" movie as I have ever seen, which is… More

Nice idea but awful execution. It had ideas from better films and failed to get anywhere near as good as them! Even at 80mins it felt way dragged out.

dreadful piece of trash, moon rocks are really aliens, do me a favour.
Tyler Robertson
Apollo 18 is the story of astronauts going to the moon and they get attacked by weird space crab things and boom, that's the plot. It's also presented… More
