A group of young shopping mall employees stay behind for a late night party in one of the stores. When the mall goes on lock-down before they can get out, the robot security system malfunctions, and goes on a killing spree.
A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.
A group of teenagers that work at the mall all get together for a late night party in one of the stores. When the mall goes on lockdown before they can get out, the robot security system malfunctions and goes on a killing spree. One by one, the three bots try to rid the mall of the "intruders." The only weapons the kids can use are the supplies in other stores. Or . . . if they can make it 'til morning when the mall reopens.Written by

Filmed in Sherman Oaks Galleria, the same mall used in Commando (1985). Most notably when near the elevators. Both films would've been filmed around the same time. But due to budget constraints, Chopping Mall (1986) was filmed after close of business. See more »
Throughout the entire movie, people can be seen walking around in the background on different floors of the mall, even though it's supposed to be closed. See more »
You know, I got a worry.
Report from the front, Ferdy's got a worry.
What if these things can read our minds?
It'll be awful mad when it gets to me!

Robot rolls up to camera and says: "Thank you. Have a nice day." (Movie's plot is that security robots run amuck at a shopping mall and that's what they said after they'd killed somebody). See more »
The TV network version has some minutes of aerial stock footage of Los Angeles added, as well as some more voice-over dialoge between the robot technicians and more scenes of Alison and Ferdy watching Attack Of The Crab Monsters on the TV set. See more »
Shopping mall security robots become killing machines when a storm effects there systems.
Believe me this is your typical late night horror film about a group of teenagers who start dropping like flies but to my surprise I enjoyed this film!
It's surprising in the sence that it's not as bad or poorly directed as you'd think it to be. Though its plot is fairly basic the acting is good and is generally well directed. I can understand that this film is not up every persons street but for me it's a pleasure just to watch a good horror film from the eighties! Thousands were made but only a few are held in esteem: A nightmare on elm street, day of the dead, bad taste etc.
So no, I wont take the film back, It'll sit on my shelf as a good late night horror film thats better to watch with a few friends on a saturday night. I entertained me and thats what films are made for!
