“..the grainy 16mm film doesn't mask the fact that the movie is put together with the same juddering editing and bad characterization as most traditionally shot thrillers..”
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..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
“..a conspiracy theory-pandering film that merely reconfirms that most entries in the "found-footage" horror subgenre should remain lost..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]

by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :
