Stop right there!

Stop right there

and surrender your weapon.

Now you'll see...

Ladies and gentlemen, that concludes

the film portion of our presentation.

I'm sure you all

have questions.

So let me introduce you

to the head of development

For Secure-Tronics


Dr. Stan Simon.

Thank you very much.

Before I open the floor, I'd like you all

to meet your brand-New security team...

the protector 101

series robots.

One week from tonight

at closing,

The protectors will begin

their patrol of the mall.

Paul, they look like

the three stooges.

Each assigned to one of

the three upper shopping levels.

I don't know, Mary, the one in the

middle has an unpleasantly ethnic quality.

Now, are there

any questions?

Yes, dr. Carrington.

So what do your machines there

do besides kill criminals?

First of all,

the protectors do not kill.

I wonder if they

kill cockroaches.

They could probably

be programmed to.

And merely detain intruders

until the computer,

Located on the roof, can patch

into the mall phone system

And send the alarm

to the police.

I don't know. That guy

looked awfully dead to me.

Just neutralized. Protectors

can achieve this function

In a number of ways.

At close range, sleep darts

fired from here and here

Can knock a man out

in less than 30 seconds.

However, the likelihood

of an intruder gaining entry

Is greatly minimized

by the steel security doors

Which are time-Locked

from midnight 'til dawn.

Um, they seem so violent.

If they're called protectors,

what do they protect?

Plenty. For starters,

as seen in the film,

The protectors do their work in the mall

proper, not in the stores themselves.

Maybe we could use one

at the restaurant...

get rid of people

we don't like.

For instance, lasers

positioned here

Can cut through

any sort of debris.

Well, that's all very well and good,

but what about those who work late?

How can your... things there distinguish

between the good guys and the bad guys?

That's very simple.


This is Simon.

Bring number one on-Line.



May I see your

identification badge, please?

It's scanning.

They remind me of your mother.

It's the laser eyes.

thank you. Have a nice day.

Same to you.

There. You see?

The system is

absolutely foolproof.

Now, everyone connected with the

mall has been issued an I.D. Badge

So that when the mechanism

goes on-Line,

The protectors will make park

plaza the safest mall in the state.

Trust me.

Absolutely nothing

can go wrong.


Are you all right?


Come on, sweetheart!

Give it to me! What do you got? Andiamo!

Can I get two uncle Luigi

belly busters, a double anchovy pizza

And an order

of garlic logs?

Gross. What Mojave brain

ordered that? Guy over there.

Oh, god. I should've known.

That orca beaches here every night.

Always trying to snag some skin.

Play it safe, Alison. Serve at

arm's length, if you get my drift.

Thanks for the advice.



Oh, honey, you

breakin' my heart.

Look, Alison, in about

an hour and a half...

we bail this barbecue and

it's good times to the max.

You've got to show. Suzie,

you've got a one-Track mind.

I already told you,

I don't know anybody.

Yeah, but you will after tonight.

That's what I'm afraid of.

Would I set you up with

a slime dog or something?

No way, "babe. "

it is babe, isn't it?

Come on, come on!

Take it while it's hot.

Girls, come on! Yeah,

all right, all right.

Waitress, more butter.

Attention, shoppers.

In the next half hour, everything

in our drapery department

Will be marked down

Jim Wynorski

Jim Wynorski (born August 14, 1950 in Glen Cove, Long Island, New York) is an American screenwriter, director, and producer. Wynorski has been making B-movies and exploitation movies since the early 1980s, and has directed over 75 feature films. His earliest films were released to movie theaters, but his later works have predominantly been released to cable or the straight-to-video market. He often works under pseudonyms such as "Jay Andrews," "Arch Stanton," "H.R. Blueberry," "Tom Popatopolis," and "Noble Henry." His movies often spoof horror films: Cleavagefield, for example, parodies Cloverfield, The Bare Wench Project parodies The Blair Witch Project, and "Para-Knockers Activity" parodies Paranormal Activity. A character in the film The Final Destination is named after him.In 2009, the documentary Popatopolis, directed by Clay Westervelt and named for one of Wynorski's pseudonyms, chronicled Wynorski during the making of his soft-core horror film, The Witches of Breastwick. The film serves as a partial biography, with clips from many of his previous films and includes interviews with Wynorski, his contemporaries, cast, and crew. In 2016, he directed Nessie & Me, marking the first time that he directed a children's film. The character Jack O’Grady directly references Wynorski's earlier films Dinocroc vs. Supergator and Piranhaconda when he encounters Nessie at the start of the film, hinting that Nessie & Me is canon to those film series, as well as Monster Cruise, with many characters from it appearing in Nessie & Me as well. more…
