* [[FoundFootageFilms Found Footage Film]]: Which makes the existence of '''[[FridgeLogic end credits]]''' rather dubious.
** [[FridgeBrilliance Perhaps they are meant to disguise the footage as being fake in order to slip it past the government?]]

The story is told in the style of found-footage movies like ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject'' and ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}''. Not to be confused with the 1992 TheyMightBeGiants album of the same name. Also not a sequel to ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'' (though [[GenreShift it would be pretty awesome if that were the case]]).

Added DiffLines:

* SovietSuperscience: Apparently the Soviets sent a man to the moon around the same time the Americans did, and kept it a secret for obvious reasons.

Added DiffLines:

* ImplausibleDeniability: Not in the film itself, but in the publicity. In an interview with ''Entertainment Weekly'', Bob Weinstein, the head of the film's distributor Dimension Films, said: "We didnít shoot anything; we found it. Found, baby!" Uhhh... sure Bob, sure you did...
