What better way to celebrate utter consumer mayhem than with a 24 hour marathon of the cult classic Chopping Mall? That is what Shout! Factory TV is doing on Black Friday.
The Black Friday Chopping Mall marathon begins Friday, November 29 at 12 a.m. PT and continues for 24 hours. The livestream can be viewed on ShoutFactoryTV.com; Shout! Factory TV’s Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, and Android apps; and the following digital streaming platforms: Twitch, Samsung TV Plus, Xumo, and STIRR.
In Chopping Mall, a group of teenagers that work at the mall all get together 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 activates after a malfunction and goes on a killing spree. One by one the three bots try to rid the mall of the “intruders.” The only weapons the kids can use are the supplies in other stores, or if they can make it till morning when the mall opens back up.
