SHOUT Factory TV Live will air a 24 hour marathon of “Chopping Mall” (aka “Killbots”) beginning at 3am EST on Black Friday, November 29, 2019: https://shoutfactorytvlive.com/chopping-mall
The 1986 sci-fi/horror movie stars Kelli Maroney, Tony O’Dell, Barbara Crampton, Russell Todd, Karrie Emerson, Nick Segal, Suzee Slater, and John Terlesky as a group teenagers sneaking into a mall after hours to have a party. Non-lethal security robots start to malfunction after a thunderstorm causes an outage. They go against their original programming and try to kill any intruders in the mall.
Scenes stealing legends Dick Miller, Paul Bartel, Mary Wornov, and Angus Scrimm all have cameos. Jim Wynorski, the film’s director and co-writer, provides the robot voices.
Under the alternative title “Killbots”, the movie aired in endless rotation on cable in the late 1980s. It was then edited down for late night syndicated TV in the early 1990s. It was one of my favorite movies back in those days.
