Chopping Mall (1986)

Synopsis: A group of young people partying in a mall after it closes find themselves terrorized by malfunctioning security robots.

The Good: I'm really drawing a blank here. The movie doesn't take itself seriously, which is good, but nothing sticks out as really good.

The Bad: The acting in this slasher is really bad. The effects aren't great.

Final Thoughts: This movie is what it is. If you want a cheesy sci-fi slasher set in a mall and have some time to waste, check it out. Otherwise, just steer clear of this one.

In Your Game: Just because I didn't care for the movie, doesn't mean it's not game-able. This would be a fun Dark Places & Demogorgons session. Heck it could even work with Zombies! 2nd Edition. Think about it, the party finds a mall that seems to be easy to loot, but then have to face killbots!
