Fans of Franco Will Enjoy His Final Film
21 March 2018 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Revenge of the Alligator Ladies (2013)

*** (out of 4)

Jess Franco, in his final film as director, plays himself who is trying to get a movie in the can but is running into a variety of issues. The film's subject, Al Pereira (Antonio Mayans) soon finds himself in Germany where he ends up in a mystery while trying to find an actress who has previously worked with the director.

REVENGE OF THE ALLIGATOR LADIES ended up being Franco's final film, although it was finished after his death by Mayans who also directed the scenes in Germany. I really wasn't sure what to expect out of this film and I must admit that I went into it thinking that it might have just been a way to leech another critic into Franco's filmography but that's not the case at all. This here is basically three movies in one and for the most part I thought it worked very well for fans of the director.

What I enjoyed the most about this was the documentary nature of seeing Franco direct the movie. He's basically directing this film's original movie AL PEREIRA VS. THE ALLIGATOR LADIES and it's a lot of fun getting to see him work with his cast and shoot the movie. The real entertainment in these scenes are when we see him just hanging out on set or see him interacting with some fans. There's a great sequence where he's just eating breakfast and doing his thing. Getting to see this side of Franco was a real joy to watch and I liked how this was added into the movie.

The next portion of the film deals with Mayans and this was shot after Franco's death. We see him having issues with a variety of women including a granddaughter who he walks in on as she's taking part of a threesome. The third portion of this film is us watching footage shot by Franco, which is just sexploitation stuff with the alligator ladies making out with one another or simply dancing for the camera. I must admit that these scenes were my least favorite because we've seen them in every other Franco movie from the digital period.

Is this movie going to turn a Franco hater into someone who admires him? Absolutely not but at the same time I think die-hard Franco fans will really enjoy seeing the behind-the-scenes footage of the Spanish director doing his thing. This certainly makes the film worth watching and everything else is just a bonus.
