Netflix and Thrill: March Meh

Netflix and Thrill is a feature where I review horror movies I've watched recently.

Chopping Mall Poster
Title: Chopping Mall
Release Date: March 21, 1987
Stars: Kelli Maroney, Tony O'Dell, Russell Todd, Karrie Emerson
Watched on: Shudder

A group of young shopping mall employees stay behind for a late night party in one of the stores. When the mall goes on lock-down before they can get out, the robot security system malfunctions, and goes on a killing spree.

Mini Review:
This is a bad 80's b list horror. And I would have loved it if it was more of like a creature that's killing them or a slasher instead of like killer robots. It didn't really feel like it fit. I think that's what would have made this one great instead of just meh. 

Dead Shack Poster
Title: Dead Shack
Release Date: July 2nd, 2017
Stars: Matthew Nelson-Mahood, Lizzie Boys, Gabriel LaBelle
Watched on: Hulu

While staying at a cabin in the woods during the weekend, three teenage kids discover their neighbor is 'feeding' guests to her zombie family. In short order, the battle is on as the kids fight to save themselves and their family.

Mini Review:
I wanted to love this. I really did. It sounded like a great zombie movie. But it was just meh. It was a bit slow and the zombies were weird. 


  1. looks like a couple of....good....ones. lol

  2. I must say that robots weren't the first 'killers' that came to mine when I saw that title/ the cover. That you describe it as bad 80's b list horror does however appeal to me.

    As for Dead Shack. Zombies? Once again, I saw the cover and didn't think zombies. That you describe them as weird. Hmm! It kind of like intrigues me whilst putting me off at the same time.
