Whether you've just run into a radioactive space mutant or fallen into a pool of flesh-eating gases, a solid scream is a handy tool for any space horror arsenal. In honor of Apollo 18 beating Shark Night 3D at the weekend box office, check out our video tribute to gasps, shrieks, and bloodcurdling screams.
