17) Apollo 18

Shot in the style of ‘found-footage’, like Cloverfield before it, Apollo 18 is based on the cancelled moon landing mission from 1974. Things take a slight detour in the film, however, in that the Apollo 18 mission was carried out (but in secrecy). The space crew lands on the moon and comes across mysterious extraterrestrial life forms that prevent them from leaving. This classic Sci-Fi Horror film stars Warren Christie from the television show Alphas.

Cube has a unique setting – it is set entirely within a large cube. (Who would have guessed?) Several people are trapped within this cube. They each have their own reason for being stuck in the cube, and they must use theirs strengths to find a way out. Okay, I know - it doesn’t sound all that interesting, but it really is. If you haven’t watched it yet, at least give it a shot.
