We are so excited about Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation.

This fantastic fan film, a scene-by-scene remake of the famous movie by Steven Spielberg, was made by a bunch of kids (Chris Stompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb) over several years in the 1980s. It is a testament to the love of film, and the creativity of artists everywhere. It may also be a nod to the willingness of parents to let their kids do what they love, even when there may be dangerous consequences (drag someone under a truck? snakes and fire in the basement? ok??).

Check out the many articles about this movie, or buy your own copy,  on Eric Zala’s website,


and here’s a trailer:
