Horrorfest 2018 Presents: Chopping Mall (1986, Jim Wynorski)


Sadly this is the only killer robot movie I watched in October, although I cannot name too many killer robot movies off the top of my head. Chopping Mall is a literal bottle TV episode stretched out into an 80 minute horror sci-fi movie. It also has several cult actors, boobs, gore and is a lot of fun. This is one of those cult movies you end up viewing late at night, beer in hand, tired from work, all because its on a streaming service and is easy to access. Thanks TubiTV!

While cult film icons Mary Woronov, Dick Miller and Paul Bartel only briefly appear in this movie, Barbra Crampton and Kelli Maroney are two of the stars in a cast of mostly young unknown actors. The young group of heroes in Chopping Mall are pretty resourceful, and the film has some good kills and suspenseful moments. Not an Oscar movie, yet still highly entertaining, which is fine with me. Also beware your place of business replacing security with freaky robots.
