Should have been taken out the back and shot like a dog.
Oh it was. I used to believe that people didn't set out to make bad movies, they were just unable to pull it off, but after having seen Awesome Lotus that has completely changed my mind. I believe these people deliberately set out to make a bad movie and they succeeded. Was it a pilot for a TV show? Who knows. it seems to have been heavily influenced by the British TV show "The Goodies" all they needed was a bicycle built for 3. The film comprises of a series of sight gags, some mildly amusing, and a plot which is so cliched that they'll probably do a big budget remake in Hollywood, and cast Lucy Lawless as Awesome Lotus. The video cover promised gratuitous gore, needless nudity, and vigorous violence. Sorry folks but when these moments occur in the film if they didn't literally label them as they do you would completely miss them. What is the "Evil Dead" connection? Is the director mates with Sam Raimi and his crew? I know the director appeared in "Army of Darkness" but the connection goes back a lot further... And Pat Mahoney also stars in "Strangeland"! If you watch Awesome Lotus" and "Strangeland" as a double as I did it makes "Strangeland " appear good!!! almost.. In conclusion its only redeeming value is it makes bad appear not so bad as it sets a new benchmark in truly awful.
