|Nothing like this happens. Ever.|
Greetings from the dark underworld of movies, it's time for more Tagline! Today I decided that it was a fine time to explore the wide world of B-movie garbage, and so took to the archive. This brought me into striking range of the dross produced by Roger and Julie Corman, and eventually to Chopping Mall. You might suspect from the name that Chopping Mall is a horror movie about a serial killer or ax murderer in a mall killing people. Maybe you'd think it was about a mall where people are chopped up, in some sort of bizarre dystopic world. You would be wrong in both cases, as this movie is actually about killer robots! Originally released in '86 as Killbots, I guess that wasn't punny enough so they re-released it as Chopping Mall, and it did a bit better afterwards. The premise of the movie is not super complicated. There is a mall. Then there are robots. The robots start killing people in said mall. That's about all there is to it. I mean, I guess I can go into more detail about the highly scientific way that the robots get to this point.
|Look at those special effects. Wow.|
|The face of true terror.|
From there on, it's kill kill kill all the time. Watch robots with funny treads chase kids around, watch those
|This almost looks like a chop, but alas it is not.|
Anyway, if you have friends over and want to watch some cheesy horror stuff, consider Chopping Mall. It really gets the B job done. That's it for today! Join me again on Thursday, when I will take us on a surreal journey into a land of insanity and nonsensical garbage. That's right, THIS movie wasn't filling that slot for the week.
