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!”


About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. I love comic books. I'm particularly into anything X-Men related and everything Harley Quinn. 2. My celebrity crush is Chris Evans (AKA Captain America). He's even more political than I am and he's not afraid to show it, plus he's really, really hot. 3. I love baseball and more importantly the Boston Red Sox, even though I've never even been to Boston. LOL 4. If I won the lottery tomorrow, after paying off my debts, I'd buy a smallish house somewhere in Southern California. I have got to get out of Texas. 5. My cartoon hero is Tina Belcher. Her and I share a soul. 6. I've been rescuing dogs since I was a teenager and firmly believe that fur babies belong inside and on the furniture. 7. I'm very much addicted to Hallmark Channel. I love their sappy movies, especially the Christmas ones. 8. I have 2 tattoos. An "E" on my ankle for my first lost fur baby. And a ladybug on my wrist named George after George Romero told me he liked it. May he RIP. 9. I'm a bit of a night owl. Not that I go out a lot, it's just that I prefer to be up at night and asleep during the day. I'm a vampire like that. 10. I have an unhealthy relationship with potato chips. My favorite are Herr's Sour Cream & Onion.
