QUICK TAKE:
Sci-fi/Horror: In 1974, a secret mission to the moon results in two astronauts having to deal with an alien infestation.
PLOT:
In 1974, two astronauts, Nathan (LLOYD OWEN) and Ben (WARREN CHRISTIE), are sent on a secret mission to the moon where they are tasked with setting up special equipment that will help keep tabs on the Russians and other threats to American interests. Almost no one back on Earth knows they are there. Not their families, not the public, and only a select few members of NASA and the government.

Once they set down on the moon, they quickly discover an abandoned Russian space module with plenty of fuel and power. They find blood inside the ship, and Ben ventures into a nearby crater and finds the corpse of a lone cosmonaut. Back at their own ship, Nathan and Ben start to have strange experiences. They hear sounds outside. They find footprints that do not appear to be human. The American flag they planted is stolen. Upon takeoff, something or someone damages their ship and they cannot leave.

Nathan attempts to repair the damage from the outside. To Ben's horror, he watches at Nathan starts to struggle and scream that there is something inside his spacesuit. Ben manages to get Nathan back into the module. But soon, it becomes clear that some sort of extraterrestrial creature has infected Nathan. With their communications offline, the two start to suspect that the government has sent them there on purpose and that they are monitoring their plight from afar with little care as to the outcome.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Some older teens may be lured by the film's "Blair Witch" conceit and monster-movie elements.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For disturbing images and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
