A very, very "80s" 80s horror as a late night party in a shopping mall (?) goes awry when the robotic security personnel have an ED 209 moment.

I agree with everyone and i say this movie too shall be riffed. i'm a first party geek of sony playstation and nintendo and a third party connoisseur of capcom, square enix, konami and namco bandai and i do love rare. don't forget to vote for my ideas. there the 4 beanie babies videos all of which were released in 1998.

This NEEDS to happen. I'm kinda surprised Rifftrax hasn't done Chopping Mall yet. It's a bad B horror movie with gore and cheesy robots in a MALL!

I'm throwing my hat into the ring for "Chopping Mall."
"Ghosthouse," "Rock 'n Roll Nightmare" and then "Chopping Mall" would feel like some kind of unrelated but essential 80's trilogy.
It's on Amazon Prime right now and watched the trailer for this movie. This would be Rifftrax gold.
I would love to see this get riffed, particularly as a VoD if it were possible to acquire the rights. Here is a trailer to show just a bit of the movie.

When I think of obscure 80s films that desperately, desperately deserve Final Justice from Bill, Mike and Kevin's hands of fate, Chopping Mall rises to the top.
Back in the early 2000s when I was in college, I'd go to Family Video or Movie Gallery in Springfield, MO and just rent terrible movies for 50 cents a pop... wretched horror films, scifi, etc. trainwrecks that were so bad they were good. We'd play Starcraft and Quake most nights (after homework and stuff) and on the nights when I was home alone OR I suckered a willing participant, we'd watch Rats, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation II, etc. etc.
I had a penchant for pain.
Chopping Mall rises to the top, though, RiffTrax team. Looking through the list, it is not a "popular" title like or recent... but it is in the top 20-30 on the list.
It has gore, it has a manical robot, it has regular bit players from other B movies, it has a nonsensical-but-nearly understandable plot... it has victims getting zapped, ran over and cut.... it has A MALL THAT HAS CHOPPING.
Bring it, guys... bring it. This movie deserves to shake hands with danger.

Best "worst" movie Mike and the guys have never, ever touched!
"What's that?" "ROBOT BLOOD!"
This one will actually make your eyes bleed. Yes, it's *that* bad!!!
Painfully bad acting and special effects. (Jailbait nymphette Kelli Maroney, of NIGHT OF THE COMET infamy, qualifies as both.) Yes, please!!!
The name of the movie is "Chopping Mall." That's all the reason you need.
