Here’s the Trailer for APOLLO 18, the sci-fi horror film, done judging by what’s seen thus far, in a ‘found footage’ BLAIR WITCH style.
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.
Directed by Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego from a screenplay by Brian Miller.
Not yet rated, due in theaters September 2nd from the Weinstein Company.

The film will be co-produced s part of a multi-pic deal between Amber Entertainment and Haxan Films (the later is the company that made BLAIR WITCH and Sanchez’s subsequent horror feature, SEVENTH MOON). Production is intended to start this October in Maryland. According to reporter Dave Mcnary, the script, by Sanchez and Jamie Nash:
…explores s the thin line between demonic possession and psychosis, starts off as a simple horror film about things that go bump in the night but slowly turns into a thriller about the evil power that exists inside one troubled young woman.
