Rock N Roll!!!!
6 June 2008 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

Heavy Metal Parking Lot has got to be one of the funniest, and silliest and metalest documentaries I've seen. When a local public access TV crew gets the idea to bring their camera to a Judas Priest parking lot before the concert, they only could have dreamed the type of characters they'd come across. Everyone and their mothers are loaded or high off their asses. Rambling metal-heads have got to be one of the funniest and dare I say, most pathetic (in a good way) sights I've ever seen. And talking about ugly dudes! Phewy! If you're looking to pass a half hour with some silly interviews and drunk retards, definitely watch this lil gem of a film. You also get a couple trailers for other Parking Lot films. One being before the Neil Diamond concert, another at a Monster Truck rally. And you also get some more found footage for the Heavy Metal Parking Lot if you watch till the end. Which you must definitely should! Rock the f@ck on!!
