It’s movies like this that I have to insist on everyone watching at least once; assuming that they’re somewhat in touch with stuff that doesn’t suck.
Before YouTube, before anything close to what people commonly refer to as viral videos, there were irredeemable pieces of shit being shown at theaters across the country for decades. Sure there were diamonds among the sludge, but so much of the rest of that schlock had nowhere near as much appeal as Heavy Metal Parking Lot; and it never even had a proper theatrical release! Heavy Metal Parking Lot as a concept isn’t really that extraordinary, but the results certainly are. Watch it for yourself and see if you can muster up enough of an argument to say otherwise.
The weirdos you see in Heavy Metal Parking Lot will always be stuck in 1986, and they will forever be more than stoked on seeing Judas Priest somewhere in Maryland. The majority of them will also look like total assholes until the end of time.
The screenshots below are some of the highlights of the documentary. I can’t guarantee it, but clicking on any of the images below will probably make you feel better about yourself. Feel free to ignore the captions.
We can only hope that the inside of this car smells like pure, unadulterated, metal shredding adrenaline. Unfortunately, it’s too bad that we can safely assume that it smells like hot Tab and bongwater soaked foam sedan interior.
We’ll assume that none of these dudes had ever heard of The Bones Brigade at that point in their (sad and/or empty?) lives.
Lee Ving‘s dad?
Thanks for reading/looking/silently chuckling to yourself in awe of these poor fools’ unique, unenviable splendor.
