After seeing his very good debut We Are 18 Years Old,I decided to try and track down the last title that film maker Jess Franco had made.Searching round for details on Revenge of the Alligator Ladies,I was sad to find out that Uncle Jess had died before the movie was completed.Talking to a DVD seller,I was happy to find out that he had gotten hold of the last completed movie that Franco had done,which led to me getting ready to pay Uncle Jess a final visit.
Entering a villa,private detective Al Pereira finds the place to be filled with Alligator Ladies,who are related to his arch enemy Fu Manchu.Shooting 2 of the Alligator Ladies,Pereira finds the memory of the women to give him troubling nightmares.
View on the film:
For what would turn out to be the last movie that he would complete,co-writer/ (along with lead actor Antonio Mayans) co- editor/ (along with Dani Salama)composer/director Jess Franco gives a fond farewell which chucks in every surviving cast member/character who he can get his hands on,as Antonio Mayans gives a good,worn down performance as the returning Pereira,whilst Uncle Jess shows that he still has an eye for the ladies.with the sexy returning duo Carmen Montes & Paula Davis offering a very alluring screen presence. Disappointingly,despite offering the tantalising premise of a detective story mixed with rather daring 4th wall breaking interludes, (With Uncle Jess being shown rehearsing scenes with actors that appear later in the film!)Franco drags the movie out to a dire pace,with the short 80 minute running time largely being used for (extremely soft) lesbian scenes where the Alligator Ladies do the same dance moves again and again,which along with the burnt to a crisp detective plot leads to this being a rusty,final note from Uncle Jess.
