'Apollo 18' Examiner DVD Review, Written by: Karen Benardello
The mockumentary has become a popular sub-genre in the horror film category in recent years, as the films in the genre often scare people into believing the horrifying events depicted in the plot can come true. But the Dimension Films sci-fi horror thriller ‘Apollo 18,’ which is now available to rent at select Long Island Redbox locations, regrettably deviates from what makes mockumentarys so enjoyable-an interesting reasoning on why the events are being filmed, and relatable characters who can make it out of any situation.
Viewers interested in seeing the making of ‘Apollo 18,’ which garnered a disappointing $25.5 million worldwide at the box office during its theatrical run, will likely be the only ones satisfied with the DVD. The bonus features include an audio commentary with Lopez-Gallego, Owen and Christie, as well as a making of ‘Apollo 18’ that features cast interviews. The DVD extras also include deleted and extended scenes, as well as the movie’s theatrical trailer.
