On May 31,1986, John Heyn and Jeff Krulik filmed Judas Priest fans in a concert arena parking lot in suburban Maryland. Thirty years later, Heavy Metal Parking Lot is hailed as one the greatest rock documentaries ever. It’s a definitive cultural touchstone for the 1980s metal scene: spandex, big hair, denim, mullets, muscle cars, and beer. Heavy Metal Parking Lot launched a parking lot genre that continues to resonate today with sequels, screenings, concerts, a reality-TV series, and fan-generated films and art inspired by the 1986 original. Welcome to the World of Heavy Metal Parking Lot. Hell Yeah!

This deluxe, limited edition, two-disc set includes Heavy Metal Parking Lot alongside related films Heavy Metal Picnic, Heavy Metal Basement, Neil Diamond Parking Lot and hours of supplements in addition to an assortment of other features from co-director Jeff Krulik.
