This film was shot using old camera lenses from the 70s. See more »
Some sound is heard in the moon scenes, despite taking place in a vacuum. For example, a sinister clicking when the space monsters are near, and a heavy thud when the rover is flipped. This could be a mixture of sounds conducted through the ground, nondiagetic audio added for the audience's benefit, and actual goofs. Which is which shall be left for the viewer to decide, and the longstanding debate on sound in space movies will not be continued here. See more »
There's just a lot at stake here, you know? We're talkin' nation versus nation, and the race is still on. There's lots to discover out there, man.

Intelligently made, this film combines camera-work similar to that used in Paranormal Activity and Cloverfield. Simplistic in its plot, the film really does boast some very frightening, nail-biting scenes. Not for the faint hearted, it also amplifies the smallest and most rational of fears into something chilling and blood-curdlingly frightening, playing on the fear that something is wrong, something is out there.
Although the film has its faults, namely near the end when the viewer is unsure as to which person's camera is being used, this can add to the feel of the film, reflecting the mindset of the equally disorientated characters.
The film could be slightly more emotional than it is, but it is after all a horror.
Leaving you with something to think about at the end gives the film an edge that makes you remember it for a while after.
If you liked Paranormal Activity or Cloverfield, then this film is definitely for you, giving you a good dose of mind-jolting jumps when you least expect them. This film is definitely worth the watch and will have you jumping out of your skin.
