Chopping Mall (1986) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I thought I’d seen 1986’s Chopping Mall previously.  Nope. For sure I would have remembered this hokey but super fun robot security guards kill everyone ‘slasher’ flick.  Look this was made in the 80’s and for what must have been a super low budget so you have to expect it to be a little… cheap.  But it hits everything you want from an 80’s horror… boobs, blood and a short run time.  Yup this is far away from many of the classic 80’s horrors that are available but at under 80 minutes you could pass the time with far worse.

Best Bit: Lazer rampage!
