Jesús Franco fez a sua aprendizagem em cinema como ajudante de realização de consagrados realizadores como Juan Antonio Bardem, Luis García Berlanga e Orson Welles na sua passagem por Espanha. Depois partiu para o estrangeiro, onde dirigiu actores consagrados como Christopher Lee, Klaus Kinski, Jack Palance, Howard Vernon, George Sanders ou Rosalba Neri.[1]

Ao longo de mais de quarenta anos produziu cerca de duzentos filmes, e foi um dos cineastas mais prolixos, originais e iconoclastas no sub-género da série B do cinema universal. Seus filmes têm sido chamados "horróticos", pela mistura de horror e erotismo. Também filmou porno, e de fato tem dito: "O porno também é cinema".[1][2]

Franco morreu a 2 de abril de 2013, em Málaga, na Espanha, vitimado por um derrame. Franco era considerado o pai do cinema B espanhol e um cultuado cineasta do trash e do underground cinematográfico espanhol.[3]
