The plot is the same as Paranormal Activity (qv) except it's set on the surface of the moon, with astronauts panicking and trying to escape an unseen terror.
It wouldn't have been too bad had some effort gone into the screenplay and the direction didn't simply ride on the coat-tails of the Paranormal Activity films and it's rather insulting that the story claims to have any basis in the truth.
Nothing particularly scary happens, it's all incredibly forgettable and it looks like the entire production was filmed using a cheap webcam.
I've seen several webcam movies which are far more entertaining, but I probably wouldn't be able to review them on here...
