It’s doubtful this will be of any interest to many people besides me, but since I can think of at least one regular visitor who shares my particular fascination with 1980s über-schlock B-horror, I’ll go ahead: I watched Chopping Mall for the first time in ages last night and noticed for the first time that it shared the director, composer, and a sizable cast percentage with the 1988 remake of the Roger Corman classic Not Of This Earth (which, by curious coincidence, I just dug out of the vault last weekend). I rented both of these movies countless times throughout high school and never noticed the similarities. Okay, that’s all.
