Films: Chopping Mall (1986)
Alias: Protectors 1, 2, and 3
Location: Haunted home
Height/Weight: Twice that of an average lanwmower.
Summary: The shopping mall has something for everyone. Stores, food, social gatherings, and as of now, overdone security.
History: Made to be the ultimate mall cops, these three bots were poised to guard the Park Plaza Mall through non-lethal means after dark. Unfortunately, a freak lighting storm struck their programming, and warped it into something murderous. Bad news for the partying intruders...
Notable Kills: A janitor is killed when the water near him gets electrocuted.
Final Fate: Protector 2 gets lured into a falling elevator, Protector 3 gets rammed by a mall cart after getting blinded by its own laser, and Protector 1 is set ablaze by a combination of fire and paint thinners.
Powers/Abilities: Equipped with tranqs, electric cables, and a laser eye.
Weakness: Cannot distinguish mannequins from real people, their lasers can be reflected, their treads don't work well on very wet floors, and any significant force can kill them.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-These robots, at best, look like homicidal WALL-Es. They're definitely threats, but it doesn't take much to destroy one.
Trivia: -There's a remake in the works that plans on doing away with the robots and going for something more supernatural. Yeah, real exciting.
-This film was shot in an actual Californian mall under the condition that nothing there be damaged and there not be a trace of the filmmakers' presence. The mall's owner thought they were alright, but the head of security saw them as little more than troublemaking pests.
