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 »
When the robot blows up the gas can in Suzie's hand, the only thing that burns is Suzie's body. The explosion should have sent burning fuel all over the place. See more »
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 »
Even in the 80's this movie was cheezy, but it's still entertaining campy fun. So, if you like an 80's horror cheezfest, filled with 50's-style effects, teenage mindless parties with a lil titular action, & Ash-esque bravado... you should check this one out. It won't disappoint.
