Who is your favorite BAD movie director?  Question
I listed 5 in the poll. Just some obvious ones that I like. But you can vote other and write in a favorite!
Ed Wood just because he's Ed Wood.
Roger Corman because he's made an amazing amount of films of all genres.
Lucio Fulci- well, because,unlike Romero, his movies make little semse-but I love them anyway.
Franco-well- because amid all his gawdawful garbage, he has moments of genius.
And Jack Hill-SPIDER BABY, COFFY, FOXY BROWN, Karloff's last 3 Mexican movies-!
Of course there's Jerry Warren, Larry Buchanan, Larry Cohen, Ted V. Mikels, Ray Dennis Steckler, Fred Olen Ray, H.G.Lewis---!

Me- I voted for Roger Corman. I just love so many of his movies.
Who's yours?

Jack Hill is good! Without Jack Hill we wouldn't have Sid Haig or Pam Grier!
Or Lon Chaney singing! Or some of the best Women In Prison movies!

I had to go with ed wood . I saw him as an honest to ghawd American success story. I mean,  he bad a dream,  he wanted to do something in his life,  make movies,  and he followed it.  He didn't let anything,  including the fact he was awful. At it, stop him.  Also his kindness to Bela Lugosi after Hollywood. Dumped him was touching.

I voted for Ed Wood, but there are several that I really like. Let's not forget Al Adamson (as I bow my head in respect), William Beaudine, W. Lee Wilder, Albert Pyun, Charles Band, Andy Sidaris . . .

Fulci, out of that list. Umberto Lenzi would also be up there for me.

I noticed a while ago that most of my favourite bad movies were directed by guys who literally just made that one movie, or perhaps just 1 or 2 others...

I thought Corman was more of a producer than a director.

Sure-he produced over 400 films-but from 1955 until 1971, he directed 56 films of all types, sci-fi, horror, westerns, biker, J.D., gangster...!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
