A good 95% of all horror films ever made make use of a powerful fear practically written into our DNA: that of the unknown. What lurks in a nearby shadow that appears to grow and shrink as we stare with unflinching eyes. The unsettling quiet that comes with a seemingly forbidden place. Luckily, what also defines us at human beings is the ability to stare into the black and leap forward regardless of the risks. We have to know … even though every fiber of our being screams to turn away. I believe it is with these thoughts in mind that the makers of Apollo 18 set out to create a film they thought would be a "no brainer".
