The found footage horror craze is a bit exhausting, mostly because of its limitations. However, it’s the limitations of Apollo 18 that most excite. Most notably? A lack of room to move around in. The two astronauts are either in a small craft or walking around in the prison of their spacesuits. They won’t be able to go far, which means they won’t be able to avoid the danger.
From the looks of the trailer, danger definitely comes to them. Check it out for yourself alongside the 5 things you should be afraid of in space:
Flag-Destroying Alien Ghosts
Who or what would dare desecrate such a symbol? Aliens? Ghosts? Ghost aliens? Whatever it was, they’ve fired a warning shot at the intruders by ripping down an icon of ownership. Great, now that thing has to be burned.
Something is jamming the signals, and it isn’t human. As soon as you figured out that you weren’t alone up there, wouldn’t you call Houston and let them know there’s a problem? Of course you would. That’s why you’re not a brave astronaut.
Indian Burial Grounds in Space
I don’t know what that is, but I hate it. This might be the single most intriguing shot of the entire trailer. What’s buried up there? Former astronauts? Something far more sinister? If I took a guess, I’d say that the astronauts are treading on ancient native Moonman burial grounds, and this is about to get Poltergeist-y real quick.
Space Spiders in Your Suit
His snoring was one thing, but it looks like the infection has driven him mad, and with that aforementioned small amount of space to run around in, Nate’s colleague looks like he’s definitely going to get a hammer to the space helmet.
