Chopping Mall (1986)

Nomination Year: 2000
SYNOPSIS:  Some teens spend the night in a mall intending to "get it on" all night. Instead, they must defend themselves against the mall's robotic security force, the KillBots.

Most Ludicrous Premise

Mall Security Gone Bad: Daleks
Someone had the brilliant idea to hire a posse of out of work Daleks as mall security.

"Let's Up The Rating To 'R'"

Let's Go For the Record!
In some movies, two of the characters have sex for no real reason other than to bump up the rating. In this movie, SIX of the characters have sex for no real reason. What, are they going for a record?

"Alas, Poor Yorick"

The Real Reason Mom Told You Not To
Oblivious security guard is killed by a Killbot fist, which grabs his neck right through the porn magazine he was looking at. Told ya that stuff was bad for you.

Best One-Liner

"Let's Send Those Suckers a Rambogram!"
"Let's send those suckers a Rambogram!" OK, that's not exactly what he said, but it's close enough for a family website.

Smithee Award Winner! Inane Dialogue

The Classic Line
The Killbot salesman (now there's a job for you) ends his presentation by saying, "Trust me, absolutely nothing can possibly go wrong."

Worst Picture

Movie in 60 Seconds: Go!
The opening credits provide a nice summary of what we can expect from this film: Pointless sex and unfunny humor. All that's missing is a Killbot going postal on some poor customer and you'd have the entire movie in one 60-second abstract.
