Title: Bad Movie Directors with lower than 5/10 IMDb rating
Post by: claws on February 08, 2013, 03:23:52 PM
1. Go to IMDb
2. Type in Director of choice (other than Edward D. Wood Jr.)  :wink:
3. Click "by ratings"

I did Fred Olen Ray. He directed 109 movies. His highest rated movie (Armed Response) scored 4.73
Can you under-beat that?

Can't really "beat" earlier entries, but directors of a couple of movies I've enjoyed are 'consistent.'

David A. Prior directed 32 movies; 30 are less than 5.0 stars.

    (5.80) - Deadly Prey (1987)
    (5.42) - Rapid Fire (1989)
    (4.86) - Sledgehammer (1983) (V)
    (4.49) - Killer Workout (1987)
    (4.46) - Raw Nerve (1991)
    (4.46) - Center of the Web (1992)
    (4.45) - Mankillers (1987)
    (4.39) - Hell on the Battleground (1989)
    (4.28) - Night Wars (1988)

    (4.13) - The Lost Platoon (1991)
    (4.02) - Night Trap (1993)
    (3.91) - Mutant Species (1995)
    (3.84) - Raw Justice (1994)
    (3.29) - Zombie Wars (2008) (V)
    (3.28) - Future Force (1989)
    (2.78) - Night Claws (2012)
    (2.70) - Hostile Environment (2000)

Mark Pirro directed 6 movies with 5 less than 5.0 (and that one just barely > 5):

    (5.02) - Curse of the Queerwolf (1988)
    (4.85) - Rectuma (2003)
    (4.34) - Deathrow Gameshow (1987)

Bill Rebane

    (3.78) - Blood Harvest (1987)
    (3.13) - The Alpha Incident (1978)
    (2.84) - The Game (1984)
    (2.79) - The Giant Spider Invasion (1975)
    (2.42) - The Demons of Ludlow (1983)
    (2.26) - Rana: The Legend of Shadow Lake (1975)
    (2.22) - Twister's Revenge! (1987)
    (2.10) - Monster a-Go Go (1965)
    (2.07) - The Capture of Bigfoot (1979)
    (1.90) - Invasion from Inner Earth (1974)

Having seen or at least tried to watch several of his movies I can vouch for their lack of quality. Anybody who collects the mill creek 50 packs will end up with the majority of these incredibly dull films.

Robert J. Horner, a one-eyed, no-legged director/producer from the 20's and 30's.  He couldn't get anyone to finance his films, so he asked actors for money, then refused to cast them.  This got him arrested more than once.

He directed 40 movies, but only 4 have ratings.  Of those only one is above 5.0.  Here they are:

Director
(5.78) - Across the Plains (1928)
(4.86) - The Apache Kid's Escape (1930)
(4.77) - The Kid from Arizona (1931)
(3.66) - The Phantom Cowboy (1935)

The movies he produced aren't any better:

Producer
(5.64) - Across the Plains (1928)
(4.84) - 45 Calibre Echo (1932)
(4.81) - The Apache Kid's Escape (1930)
(4.64) - The Kid from Arizona (1931)
(3.68) - The Border Menace (1934)
(2.26) - Pueblo Terror (1931)
