Just one of them got an imdb rating above 3!!!

When I checked today (9-5-2012) 15 of his movies had an average imdb rating of 1.0.... Wow!!!
Usually based on just a few dozen votes. This actually means the poor fellow doesn't even have any friends, family, acquaintances (or cast and crew members from his films), who are willing to give his films a favorable vote...
Only a few would already make a big difference.

James Nguyen
Director James Nguyen is the founder of Moviehead.com, an online movie theater. In 2001, he produced and directed Julie and Jack - a romantic thriller about love and spirituality. In 2004, he completed a second film: Replica - a romantic thriller. Recently, James completed directing Birdemic - Shock and Terror...
“ The only film he is known for (but that's enough) is his:
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010).
At this moment it has an imdb-rating of 2.0 based on 2181 votes. Because of this, it's placed #49 on the imdb bottom list.
I think Birdemic is one of those rare films, where the sequel is better than the original. When I'm talking about the sequel I mean the one Nguyen is filming at the moment: Birdemic II: The Resurrection 3D. We can be quite sure it will be better - can't we - because it's almost impossible that it will any worse.... ” - emertens

Edward D. Wood Jr.
Hacks are nothing new in Hollywood. Since the beginning of the Hollywood film industry, thousands of untalented people come to Los Angeles to try to make it big, (artists, writers, producers, directors, actors, etc.), but who end up exploiting others for money and also use his or her self-taught creative ability or training which leads to the production of dull...
“ To me Ed Wood is still THE king of bad movie making. And then I mean in technical sense. No other director has made so much goofs and mistakes continuously. But the most famous of his films are thoroughly enjoyable...

3.7 - Plan 9 From Outer space
3.1 - Night of the Ghouls

Herschell Gordon Lewis
Only one film-maker can claim the title "Godfather of Gore." That peculiar but apt identification seems to be the exclusive property of Herschell Gordon Lewis. With an unusual background that included teaching English Literature to college students, producing and directing television commercials, and voicing radio and television commercials...
“ I'm a bit sorry I have to add H. G. Lewis. This director is more or less the inventor of the gore / splatter horror film. And mostly because of that, some of his movies can be considered as "historical" significant.
It might be possible Lewis was aware of the badness of his pictures and liked it. A bit like Troma pictures, or the John Waters movies.
In technical sense his movies aren't always that bad. But none of them - 38 titles - got a rating above 6.

His worst - and that's a pretty bad one - is:
Monster a-Go Go.

At the moment I'm typing this, it has a user rating of 1.5. And it is on the 6th place of the imdb bottom list ” - emertens

Jerry Warren
With all due respect to the man himself, it is hard to think of any horror filmmaker who made movies that were as cheap or as ridiculed as Jerry Warren's.
