Found-footage horror Apollo 18 gets a trailer

Apollo 18 has had an incredibly fast turnaround time.

The Timur Bekmambetov-produced thriller crept into production last November, and is set to be released this spring.

Pouncing on the current trend that is found-footage horror, Apollo 18 has a neat twist in that it happens in space.

Adding to the purported stylistic realism, the film is based on a cancelled shuttle mission.

While the trailer generates a reasonable amount of tension, several elements do look very familiar, from the insectoid alien parasite, to the infected zombie-like victims.

Hopefully the finished product will have a few tricks up its sleeve...

Check out the trailer for yourself below:

Apollo 18 is set for release on 22 April 2011.
