Jess Franco's swan song: AL PEREIRA VS. THE ALLIGATOR LADIES (review)

The daughters of Fu Manchu are after hard-boiled detective Al Pereira.  Fortunately, Pereira is after them too, and his only defenses are his machismo and his gun; which are pretty much the same thing when your enemy is using sex as a weapon (“I can see your alligators!”).  Antonio Mayans (REVENGE IN THE HOUSE OF USHER), Paula Davis (PAULA-PAULA), and Carmen Montes (SNAKEWOMAN) star in Franco's last edited film.
