Apollo 18
Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy ($39.99)

History recalls 1972’s Apollo 17 as America’s last manned mission to the moon. But was it really? Not according to this spooky drama, which asks viewers to believe there was a top-secret follow-up that went horribly, catastrophically wrong. Most viewers will realize their chain is being yanked by yet another “found-footage” faux documentary, which creatively blurs the line between truth and tall tale. But it’s a fanciful, convincing-looking concoction that, like all good sci-fi, asks you to reconsider what might be out—or, in this case, up—there.
