It’s a well-known fact that the space race contains some of the best-kept secrets. And that a lunar trip can be one of the best allies for terror. In 1972, the United States sent two astronauts to the moon on a failed mission. The crew’s recordings, locked away and hidden by NASA, now come to light, revealing the reasons why the mission failed and the existence of a mysterious presence in outer space. The director of El rey de la montaña now hops on the rocket of an American production to wind up making one of the most spine-chilling and fascinating space horror movies since Alien.
