VHS junkies Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett stop off in Austin tonight with two screenings of Found Footage Festival 5.

The Found Footage Festival is devoted to preserving video oddities – you know, instructional videos, workout cassettes, public access shows, the like. Sometimes creepy, sometimes sad, but always very, very funny. Scroll down for a teaser of this year's show. (Ewwww, was that Sandy Dennis in the leotard?)

This year's program also includes a screening of "Heavy Metal Parking Lot," the 1986 underground doc about Judas Priest fans gathering pre-show in a Maryland concert arena's parking lot.

Screenings take place at 7 and 9:35pm tonight at the Alamo Ritz. Go here for ticket info.
