'Apollo 18,' which lands at a theater near you this weekend, is a fictional horror story about recently discovered lost footage from a 1973 moon landing that was never publicly announced. Dimension Films is playing up the angle that this is actual lost footage and not at all a horror film that they are not screening for critics (for whatever reason). Now, obviously, what's being released in theaters this weekend is fiction, but in reality, there was very much an Apollo 18 mission scheduled (as well as Apollo 19 and Apollo 20). Early September movies aside, what is the real story behind the Apollo 18 moon mission and why was that mission canceled?
