Director M Night Shyamalan credits movie Raiders of the Lost Ark with inspiring his film career.

The VILLAGE film-maker saw Steven Spielberg's first INDIANA JONES adventure when he was 12, and was so impressed by the movie's spiritual themes, he decided to make eerie pictures for a living.

He explains, "This was the movie that got me into filmmaking. I went to see it with a friend when I was 12. I remember finding the film's religious message about some things being too pure to be seen by human eyes intoxicating.

"Three years later I began to think seriously about making movies for a living."
