So I knew nothing about this movie. From the title and the release year I figured it was a typical slasher movie set in a mall. As those that do know about it or have seen it can attest, it's a little bit more than that. And by a little bit more I mean... it's a freakin killer robot movie! So much so that the credits call them "killbots"! They are like a cross between Johnny 5 and ED-209... stalking this mall at night and killing any sex-crazed teen in their path. Awesome.

After that though... it IS sort of a typical slasher movie set in a mall (is that the same mall as Fast Times at Ridgemont High??), only difference being it's the killer robots doing the slashing with their lasers and sleep darts and mechanoid crushing claws and taser cannons. They are bullet proof and they are tank-tread'd and they are pissed! Except after they kill someone they say "thank you. Have a nice day." hahahahaha.

I guess I now know what cyberdyne does before moving on to global defense systems...

So that was a fun time. Gotta love killer robots. It's not 4:15am. I'm tired. I should be going to sleep. Not Yet. One More. One More movie to end this weekend of one-man film festival celebration and journal-entering. I wonder what I saved for last...
