APOLLO 18 is a sci-fi horror film in which newly-discovered footage from NASA's abandoned Apollo 18 mission in the 1970s shows what happened to three American astronauts who were sent on a secret sample gathering expedition to the moon.

Threat

There are elements of paranoia and psychological threat, with unexplained and unsettling incidents occurring on the supposedly routine mission. This includes a scene in which blood is found in an abandoned space craft.

Moderate horror includes a scene in which an astronaut is infested with spider-like creatures inside his enclosed helmet. It is implied that his face explodes into a bloody mess.

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k').
