Heavy Metal Parking Lot

Heavy Metal Parking Lot
16:38 | 1986

Categories: Documentary, Music, Cult Classics

HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT is considered one of the greatest rock and roll movies of all time, although it's actually a hilarious documentary tribute to rock and roll's greatest fans. Filmed in 1986 at a Maryland concert arena parking lot before a heavy metal show, HMPL is an unvarnished anthropological study of American metalheads in their mid-1980s glory. It is the quintessential '80s magnum opus, made complete with a vast display of muscle cars, spandex, bleach-blonde frizzy perms, bare-chested dudes, Mullets From Hell, faded denim metal chicks, and the largest collection of late '70s Camaros ever seen in one location. Virtually unknown to mainstream audiences for two decades, HMPL was a VHS bootleg favorite among musicians, movie stars and cult-video fanatics worldwide.

I was 23 in 1986 and this pretty much encompasses how it was back then. Thank god I was able to experience it all in its glory. Not this miserable stuff they call music today with it's inane political correctness....Long live the 80s and 80s rock forever.

Classic film. I love this sort of movie because it gives a view of some things I've never really known much about.

Hi all - sent an invite to watch snag films to a few people on my friends list - so if you got one it is NOT some kind of spam or dangerous junk. AWESOME short films free of interuptions. And Yeah - check out HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT - well worth seeing, even if you have seen it before. Also, there is a sequel (that I have yet to watch - cannot see name rite now, but its basically people from HMPL in the 2000;s! :) Cheers & Enjoy.
