This little bootleg-movie takes you back to another era, when rock dinosaurs walked the earth and there was no difference between the looks of a guy and a girl. "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" is a hilarious short documentary that gives us an impression of what it meant to be a metal fan in the 80's. The movie starts in the early afternoon as the first people arrive at the parking lot of a concert venue where a Judas Priest concert is going to take place later on. They come, they see, they crank up the volume of their car radios and get wasted. The whole thing is extremely entertaining to watch and also makes you a bit sentimental. In the end, you'll have to wipe a few tears from your eyes and come to the conclusion that metal fans just aren't what they used to be in those days.
