Such a campy '80s flick... a type of film that I can't stay away from.
Not too bad, even if the robots were a little too stupid. You've got the over exaggerated acting, the typical horror kill list, some nudity thrown in, even a short appearance by Dick Miller (Gremlins).
But it's quite a short movie and is kind of stale instead of being fun to watch.
The best part about this movie is the awesome 80's, retro mall; and running a close second, the cheesy electro-synth soundtrack.
The plot device of the robots is just hilarious so right off the bat you know what you're in for. Sadly, this film cuts to the chase all too quickly and 2/3 of the film is just the characters trying to blow up the robots. It's alright, and probably better than a good chunk of 80's slashers out there, especially the later ones like this one is. All in all I think it's worth a watch if you've already watched most of the more popular/lauded ones out there and are itching for a cheesy slasher film.
"Thank you, have a nice day."
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
