Raiders! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made tells the story of three kids in 1982 who set out to create a shot for shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark in Mississippi. The project lasted seven years and all that was left to film was one crucial scene. Now over thirty years later, the men have reunited to complete their remake of Steven Spielberg’s iconic movie.
Yikes. So I watched the unrated cut and, to its credit, there is some really good gore and body horror effects work in this movie.But that's about all this movie has going for it.

The kills are okay for the most part, but there was way too much sloppy cutting away from gore that hindered otherwise interesting and intricate kills.Was not expecting the ending to go the way it did. I […]
