RAIDERS Homage Film

Monstro Wolfhard (no, I don't know if that's the fellow's real name) reports on a fan-made shot-for-shot remake of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. It was made by a group of Mississippi teens from 1982 to 1989! Monstro himself was at a recent screening of the movie:
"You to watch as boys become men and Marion Ravenwood's hair goes through about six different lengths.

"Also, there was a lot of audience discomfort during the sexy scenes.

"This is the first 10 minutes, (ending with the boulder scene). The boulder was made out of fiberglass and rolled down two telephone poles in the kid's garage."

Somewhat in the same vein (and with another big hat tip to Monstro) is Little Batman from Valenti Vision Films:

The Raiders film played in NYC last year, but I didn't catch it. It looks much better made than I imagined.
