The movie Apollo 18 is based off of found footage from the secret Apollo 18 movie which was uploaded to LunarTruth.com. The film was pitched as being all real footage edited down from a hundred hours of footage that was uploaded onto LunarTruth.com. The website is featured at the beginning and end of Apollo 18 and surprisingly it seems quite a few people have bought into it.
As of writing this the website is completely overloaded and not even loading which is quite interesting.
When you do some googling you can literally find dozens of sites talking about conspiracies and how the site has been taken out by the US Government to put the lid on the real Apollo 18 mission and its devious moon intentions.
Apollo 18 is a reasonable found footage film that takes the Blair Witch concept to the moon and for the most part does so with reasonable effect. Unfortunately for the film it failed to capture much of an audience on Friday night bringing in only $2.4 million at the box office.
If you enjoyed the film and are looking to continue the experience whether you believe in the story or not be sure to go and checkout www.lunartruth.com ( assuming you can get it to load )
