Heavy Metal Parking Lot

If you have a half an hour to kill, I recommend watching this mini documentary filmed at a Maryland Judas Priest concert parking lot in 1986. Some serious hair in this thing!! Also check out the “Where Are They Now” video.

An interesting video about the lack of originality in movies. It guess it’s true that “there is nothing new under the sun.”
