It was kinda pathetic

Apollo 18 had to be one of the worst yet stupidest movies I’ve ever seen, but like it’s not 12/12/12 bad but with the moon rock turning spiders was a stupid idea and really only scare someone with a severe phobia of spiders.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Possibly the worst film I have ever see .... zzzzzzz
