Another Of Cinema's Classics Is Getting Remade: I'll Never Forget You, Chopping Mall
The youngsters among you may not remember the heyday of 80's horror, when it felt like every 30 minutes we were getting a new, ridiculously silly horror movie. Terrible acting, low production values, gratuitous nudity and feathered hair abounded. Sure, the movies are incredibly tame by today's standards, but there was a strange joy that I always associated with 80's horror.
So of course, let's do some remakin'! This time around, Variety is reporting that Dry County Entertainment is remaking the Roger Corman shlocky classic Chopping Mall, one of my favorite bad movies. Robert Hall will direct, as well as co-write the script with Kevin Bocarde. The original was about a shopping mall that enlisted high-tech robots instead of mall security cops, and of course the robots malfunction and EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE. Because obviously the first to get high tech super robot guardians will be a fucking shopping mall.
Coulda used some of them this past weekend, amirite?
Oddly, this time around there will somehow be supernatural elements incorporated. Magical robots? One can but hope, children. Regardless, for your Monday morning pleasure, I give you all of the death scenes from Chopping Mall:
