Where's my "Deadly Friend" DVD?
Chopping Mall. Even though it steals a lot from Romero's Dawn of the Dead, it's a fun movie with great cameos from Dick Miller, Paul Bartel, and Mary Woronov.
Chopping Mall by a mile. Deadly Friend was awful. I haven't seen it in some years, but I remember my jaw literally dropping at the ending. Very bad.
Chopping Mall, if solely for the cameo of Bartel and Woronov replaying their characters from Eating Raoul.
Let's see.....ummm.... I'll say Chopping Mall.
I would have to go with Deadly Friend as I have a soft spot for it. Had a huge crush on Kristy Swanson when I saw the film.
Chopping Mall was built up too much. Too much hype. By the time I watched it, it wasn't fun. Everything was ehhhhh. There wasn't anything special about it. It wasn't scary. The music didn't stand out. The acting was generic. There wasn't much style. Almost no atmosphere. There just wasn't anything going on.
At least Deadly Friend had consequences to the events that took place. Characters lived and died and it meant something. The music was more interesting. The robot character was memorable. The basketball death scene was fabulous. The editing was tense and occasionally nerve-wracking. The tone was actually dark.
An easy vote for me- Deadly Friend.
As much as I love beebee, I recently saw Chopping Mall for the first time and was blown away. Couldn't agree less with what dvd-fanatic said. And yet..... beeebeeeeeeee..!!
I guess I'll rewatch Chopping Mall.
Chopping Mall. Deadly Friend is a slow burning turd.
Unlike Chopping Mall, it showed that there were consequences to the events which took place. Characters lived and died and it meant something. The music was more interesting. The robot character was memorable. The basketball death scene was fabulous. The editing was tense and occasionally nerve-wracking. The tone was actually dark.
