Just when you thought you’d had your fill of found footage horror films, we’ve got yet another one heading to theatres this year courtesy of The Weinstein Company and producer Timur Bekmambetov called Apollo 18. The movie was first announced last November and now the first trailer has already arrived online, which definitely indicates just how quickly these low budget projects can be churned out. Fortunately, this one has a somewhat unique twist in that it purports to be recently discovered video footage from one final, top secret mission to the moon.
Looking at the trailer, it’s actually pretty cool to see how they’ve made an effort to recreate the look and feel of old NASA footage. The only thing is, I’m not completely convinced that this style will actually add to the terror and suspense since it’s so grainy and distancing. Apollo 18 is directed by Gonzalo López-Gallegod (King of the Hill) and it hits theatres on April 22nd. What do you think, does this have potential to be the next Paranormal Activity? Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
