by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
“..not only is this long-delayed horror film's form cliched, so is its content..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a slow-as-a-space-walk thriller that's supposed to be a cobbled-together account of an undisclosed 1974 mission to the moon, has no thrills, no chills, no scares and contains a villain, or several of them, actually..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

“..a hopelessly inept POV presentation that's part irritating urban legend, part common conspiracy theory, and all awful..”
