* SpecialEffectsFailure: The lunar landscape, landing module and suits all look fairly good... right up until the astronauts start moving, at which point it is very, ''very'' obvious they're on a soundstage. Seriously, ''Film/TheAdventuresOfPlutoNash'' put more effort into simulating the effects of lower gravity on-screen.

* 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:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: [[spoiler: When Anderson and Walker are driving to the Soviet LK and Walker crashes the rover, the footage slows down to show several boulders turning into larger versions of the alien spiders. This is never commented on, and the large spiders are never seen again.]]

* FridgeLogic: The movie is based on actual footage of a secret mission [[spoiler: even though this was the last mission to the moon ("...we never went back..."), none of the crew survived and all spacecraft were destroyed, somehow the footage has made it back to Earth and been magically]] uploaded to the internet.
* FridgeHorror: Or tragedy, in any case--unless Luna 2, the first probe to arrive on the Moon, revealed something to the Soviets more than a decade before the film's events, the Soviets and their cosmonauts [[spoiler: would have had no way of knowing what was lurking on the moon. Tragic because it's implied the Americans, through their shared cover-up, actually had some idea but went ahead ''anyway''.]]

* HellIsThatNoise: [[spoiler: The sound of something scuttling on the hull of the lunar lander. Normally such a sound would be moderately creepy given multi-legged things give this Troper pause, but put it on the Moon...]]

* {{Narm}}: Yeah, the aliens? [[spoiler: Spiders. Sentient spiders that run around, disguised as ''rocks''.]]
