PLOT: Eight teens are trapped inside a shopping mall as its brand-new automated robot security guards go on a murderous rampage.

“I’m just not used to being chased around a mall in the middle of the night by killer robots.”

This quote should be all you need to know about this film. This is a movie about killer robots that attack a group of teens in a mall; it’s basically Dawn of the Dead meets RoboCop, and it’s a fun time. It’s played straight, for the most part, and the actors do a good job of playing the parts they’re given.  All in all, it’s not a bad B-movie and has some pretty decent moments.

The Park Plaza Mall just got an upgrade in its security system.  The new state-of-the-art security agenda is carried out by three robots that are programmed to stun any intruders that happen to be in the mall after hours.  When a lightning storm hits the security grid, the robots go haywire and attack anyone that they come across, including a group of teens that are throwing a party in the furniture store.

It’s a pretty simple story, and once the robots go crazy, it just sort of goes from there, where the robots pick off the teens one-by-one. I always love to see Dick Miller in movies, and he has a small cameo.  Plus, this is now the THIRD Barbara Crampton movie I’ve watched this month.  Crazy.

 

gore 1

This movie has an epic head explosion scene.  It’s pretty awesome.  After that, there’s some stabbings and throat slits but nothing really compares to the head explosion.

scares

It’s a movie about killer robots that are barely scarier than Roombas. You shouldn’t be frightened, unless you’re weird.

sex nudity

It’s the 80s, so you can always count on some nudity.  Here, you get a couple of flashes of boob, both of which are pretty great.

OVERALL

This is a wacky fun time for someone in the right mindset.  There’s a pretty great head explosion scene, there’s some boobs, and the plot is downright silly, but in a good way.  If you want to get drunk with friends and watch a B-movie, this is a good one.
