After seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, three 12-year old friends, Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb, began filming their own shot-by-shot adaptation in the backyards of their Mississippi homes.

Seven years later their film was in the can.

Here is the end result of their combined efforts. The ONLY segment they cut from the film was the scene with the explosion of the Nazi flying wing.

Other compromises were made - there is no white horse, and a small dog is a stand in for the monkey, but this IS Raiders of the Lost Ark in all it's glory, as only little boys - and one girl - can recreate.

Enjoy. You can read an interview with the creators at this link:

The special effects in that were better than the ones in Crystal Skull.
