CHOPPING MALL (1986)
Chopping Mall only has a 4.7 rating over at IMDB.com, but this is one of my favorite horror films of the late 80's.
The movie was originally released under the title Killbots and it bombed. Later, the flick was re-released as Chopping Mall and subsequently found a kult following. The infamous mall seems to be the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, though the interiors were apparently shot at the Sherman Oaks Galleria in the San Fernando Valley.
Chopping Mall has various versions floating around, but essentially it's a low-budget horror film about horny teenagers trapped in a mall that is being terrorized by security robots. Hell yeah!
