In fact, most of the content on my Have You Seen page is collected from these conversations! I have great friends.
Although Chopping Mall didn't come to my attention from such a conversation, I did share it in such a conversation recently.
First and foremost, this film is simply offensive on multiple levels. Multiple. Levels. But, that's pretty much what I'd expect with a film where killer robots are on the loose in a shopping mall.
From IMDB: "Eight teenagers are trapped after hours in a high tech shopping mall and pursued by three murderous security robots out of control."
*You had me at murderous security robots*
Fans of schlock entertainment will find lots of entertainment with this film. I was actually surprised by how entertained I was - and I have a healthy appreciation for terrible B films and my valuable, precious time.
With a plethora of campy moments, eye-rolling one-liners, 1980's nostalgia, and really amazing kill scenes, Chopping Mall, is a ridiculously innovative slasher that will latch on to the heart (with lasers) all the B rated and cult following feels.
Also, I can't get over how funny the film's tag lines are - I think this list should continue growing:
- Tonight Park Plaza Mall switches on the world's toughest security force. Absolutely nothing can go wrong...
- Shopping will never be the same!
- Where shopping can cost you an arm and a leg.
- Chopping Mall - Where they slash their prices - and their customers!
- Buy or Die
- At Park Plaza Mall the security force isn't just tight, it's terrifying!
- Shop til you drop, dead!
Film will pair wonderfully with a group of friends (after a shopping spree, of course), beer, more beer, pizza - or preferably - a truck load of food from the local mall food court.
I watched this film on Amazon. Check out Horror Habit's Find It. Watch It links to locate where else you can see this absolutely absurdly entertaining film.
