YMMV / Chopping Mall

  • Awesome Music: Chuck Cirino's synthesized score is every bit as daft as what's on screen, and that's exactly what makes it so charming. Here's a sample.
  • Signature Scene: The "Laser Head Explosion" scene.
  • Vindicated by History: More commercially, not really critically. When the movie first was first released in 1986, it was a box office bomb. Producer Roger Corman and the creators blamed this on the film's original title, Killbots, which they thought made audiences believe the film was some sort of Transformers-type cartoon movie (and it didn't help that Transformers: The Movie was released at the same time). When they changed the title to its current one, it did substantially better business at the box office.
