Having never seen Chopping Mall (1986) and knowing almost nothing about the film, the title conjured thoughts of a slasher film, a very popular and overused genre throughout the 80's, set in the confines of a shopping mall, a very popular destination in the 80's. Had they stuck with the original title of Killbots, I may not have been so quick to assign my preconceptions to the film, but either way, this was a pretty fun film, if you are interested in 80's horror films with a side order of science fiction.

Co-written by Steve Mitchell, whose main credits include writing for the oh so 80's cartoons Jem! and Transformers, and Jim Wynorski (who also directed the film along with a plethora of sequels to other films including Big Bad Mama II (1987), The Return of Swamp Thing (1989), Sorority House Massacre II (1990), 976-EVIL 2: The Astral Factor (1991), among others...) features a cast that reads like a B-movie fan's dream, including Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), Zoe Kelli Simon, aka Kelli Maroney, (Night of the Comet), Russell Todd (Friday the 13th Part 2), Nick Segal (Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo), and Tony O'Dell, who also appeared in not only the first Karate Kid, but its' subsequent sucky sequel (love that Ralph Macchio...). Also, making cameo appearances are B-movie legends Paul Bartel, Mary Woronov (playing the same characters they did in the film Eating Raoul), Gerrit Graham, as a technician (I most remember his part from the Kurt Russell film Used Cars (1980) but he's been in a ton of films), and Dick Miller, as a janitor named Walter Paisley, a name he's used for a number of characters in movies he's been in, going all the way back to original appearance as the name for the main character in the film A Bucket of Blood (1959).

Yes, CHOPPING MALL is a dumb and deceiving title for this movie. KILLBOTS (the original title) is superior and more truthful. At any rate, I like this one a lot. The idea of killer robots chasing kids trapped in a mall after hours, is my kind of story! Plus, I get to see one of my favorite 80s horror babes, Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond, Castle Freak) running around screaming and bursting into flames! CM has plenty of action, humor, nudity, and violence. The cameos of Paul Bartel, Mary Woronov, and Dick Miller are cool. Also, there's "Peckinpah's Sporting Goods" (loaded w/ artillery of course), and "Roger's Little Shop Of Pets" in the mall! So, if you drool over killer robots and / or Barbara Crampton like I do, then this is the perfect DVD purchase! Would make a great film-fest w/ ROBOCOP, THE TERMINATOR, and WESTWORLD...

I never thought I would see this movie released on DVD. And if I did I would have guessed it would have been ultra bare bones. But I have to say, this release was pretty good.

The movie itself is a fun, cheap 80's flick, with some better special effects than a normal movie of this caliber would have. The acting is decent. The script is campy, but fast paced enough. The characters are okay, and work well within the story, and the direction is actually pretty good, considering how cheap this movie was. Watching this movie made me realize how different the B-Movie market was then. Now you get a movie with almost no style, and a lot of point and shoot direction. The movies now usually look like they were filmed in someones back yard (and probably were), and had his neighbors do the acting. Then you had a movie that had decent direction, actual working actors, and some minor semblance of dignity. Over all the movie is an 7/10. It's pretty good, but needed a little work in the final act.

The disc for Chopping Mall is actually way better than the price, or cheap cover art would let on. For starters, the extras are actually decent, with an informative documentry on the making of the KillBots, which then goes in to the production on the film a bit. Why Lions Gate went and did this, I don't kno, but I'm glad they did. It's a nice extra, which is informative. There is also a commentary, which I haven't listened to. But the fact that Lions Gate even bothered is a plus in there case. You also get the theatrical trailer to the film. The picture for the disc, while somewhat soft, is very good. I mean, the movie is old, and the original prints are probably damaged, so the fact that the movie looks as good as it does is a major plus.

The Park Plaza Mall security has just gone high tech, leaving its unsuspecting mall shoppers dying to get out,they just don't know it yet. This new breed of mechanical security guard has been created and recruited specifically to be the new "night watchman" for the Park Plaza Shopping mall. After a series of freak electrical strikes and short circuits to the computers main system all hell breaks loose and the shopping mall has now become the "Chopping Mall". Those unfortunate to be locked in are in for a deadly surprise. Due to a number of power surges the mechanical menaces have now powered up on their own to become "Killbots". Once activated the "Killbots" only objective is to kill mall intruders by any means possible and most of the deaths are carried out in gruesome fashion.

I really enjoyed this typical 1980's teenage B slasher flick and it's definitely worth a look for fans of this genre. Four pairs of horny teenage mall workers come up with an idea to have a party in the malls furniture and bedding store for some teenage fun and frolic after the malls shoppers have cleared out. It doesn't take long for the killing to begin because the "Killbots" soon discover the teenager's party playground and their fun and frolic quickly turns to all out fear. Faced with no other alternative the teenagers decide to band together to fight their way past the "Killbots" to escape the "Chopping Mall" and not become the "killbots" next victim.

This movie has a little bit of everything featuring Nudity, sexual situations and plenty of carnage. As for the movie itself its pretty good and the audio and video transfer is pretty decent although a little dark and mirky in some spots. Lions Gate films has included some nice bonus features in this DVD release making it worth the money.
