Chopping Mall (1986)

Directed by Jim Wynorski.  Written by Jim Wynorski and Steve Mitchell.  Starring Kelli Maroney, Mary Woronov, Russell Todd, Barbara Crampton and Tony O’Dell.

Plot: a group of teens are trapped in a chopping mall with new, murderous, security robots


The mall has recently increased security everywhere.  They’ve even gotten a bunch of robots that stun and detain criminals.  Of course, something goes wrong with the robots.  Because that’s how life is.  Something always goes wrong with the robots.

So, now that something is wrong with the robots, they’re killers.  Going far and beyond detainment, they begin killing people.  The teenagers partying overnight see them kill someone and freak out.  And here comes the movie.

It all comes off very tongue-in-cheek.  It’s ridiculous and it’s hilarious.  There’s boob shots and scenes of people splitting up when they should be sticking together.  We, of course, own it.  The best and most hilarious thing of all is perhaps the fact that the robots have learned to communicate with one another and blow people’s heads clear off, but it takes them an hour just to laser a fucking hole in a wall.  It makes no sense.  If you want sense, go somewhere else.  If you want to laugh and have a good time, watch this.

Score from us: 74.

“Have a nice day!”
