Hello and welcome everyone to Shawn's Horror Movie Review Blog. I hope you might stick around for a little info on some of my favorite horror films and some of the recent horror films I will be seeing. I have been looking for a long time for a good place to post a blog about my horror movie thoughts and i figured, hey, why not just start here. So here it goes with my first title I will be talking about.

Chopping Mall

Rated: R

Release: 1986

Now I can be the first to admit that I'm a sucker for some off the wall, borderline bad horror movies. Depending on your outlook of this film it can be off the wall and borderline bad. I however love it.

The story takes place in an American shopping mall in the mid 1980's. Now if your a part of the younger generation and have never been to a shopping mall in the 1980's probably up until the mid 1990's anyone can tell you a mall was a place to be. The story is focused around a group of teenagers who decide it would be fun to stay the night in a furniture store after the mall gets locked down for the night. Sounds like some good "innocent" fun there doesn't it? The mall itself has a new security system. Three robots that they will use when the mall closes for the night in order to detract and stop anyone that breaks into the mall in the off hours (what could go wrong here?). Well the night finally arrives, the mall is about to close down when a thunderstorm appears at the mall (yes, a thunderstorm in a horror movie. Who would have thought it?) and lightening strikes a main computer that are tied into operating the 3 robots, who have names as Projector 1, Projector 2 and Projector 3. (Quite original).

The mall is finally closed down for the night. The teenagers begin to have their party and everything is just going great, until one of the teenagers leaves the store to buy a pack of smokes from a machine in the mall. The young man is approached by one of the robots as he is outside of the store. But hey, all is well, he has his identification card that are given to the employees who work late so the robots can tell who the bad guys are. Well after a few smart comments to the robot, he shows he ID card, the robot reads it, and low and behold, that when the Killbots (which was actually another title for Chopping Mall) start their spree. It didn't take the teenagers long to know they were going to be in for a long night as the now "killbots" start picking them off one by one in the mall. Just how do you stop a killer robot in the mid 1980's. Well without giving to much of the ending away let's just say one of the teenagers has a plan you could paint a picture with.

I have to say the climax for this film is very entertaining. Everything about this film screams (no pun intended) off the wall but it sure is a good time to watch. If you can find this little gem I would recommend giving it a watch on a rainy Friday night.

Overall I give this film a 3.5 out of 5 stars. Perhaps if malls weren't going extinct in 2017 we could use some good robots to protect them as they may have thought in the 1980's

If you're still reading this I hope you enjoyed it. I plan to do another installment in a day or two. I will let you choose which film will be talked about next. The options are...

Halloween
Blood Diner
The Final

Thanks for reading,
Shawn

They are one of those things that aren't for everyone. Much like how is here on the forums deal with the unknown, unseen and mysterious.

If there weren't any people who could handle seeing those types of things, then we wouldn't have coroners, morticians, surgeons, CSI, and probably a butt load of other jobs... our world would be full of corpses laying around because no one would go near them.
Do whatever makes you happy, whatever fruits your loops.
