Storyline

During World War II, a small German squadron was assigned the task of carrying a shipment of Nazi gold across the African desert. Along the way, the squadron was ambushed by the Allies, and only one American soldier, Robert, survived. Years later, Robert tells his story to a German treasure hunter named Kurt, who promptly murders him. Robert's son, upon learning of his father's death, vows to travel to Africa and find the lost gold himself. While the desert is hazardous enough by itself, the dangers lurking around this oasis are more than any of the treasure hunters ever imagined. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher {rocher@fiberbit.net}

Nazi Zombies Devour Bad Militia and Stupid Teenagers
9 December 2007 | by (Satan's Colon) – See all my reviews

The movie opens in a desert. We see two young women arrive at an oasis wearing tight little shorts and tank tops that suggest that the desert may be colder than one might expect. The two of them dig around, and are attacked by Nazi zombies! We never do find out exactly why these two young women are at the oasis, but it doesn't seem to matter. At this point, we are treated to the opening credits, shown with some funky 70's porno music playing. This is the beginning of OASIS OF THE ZOMBIES, and in spite of the suggestive introduction and the fact that this was directed by Jesus Franco, there is very little sex or nudity contained therein.

The plot of OASIS OF THE ZOMBIES revolves around three different groups of people, all searching for hidden Nazi gold in the aforementioned oasis. Instead, what they find are the undead remnants of a group of Nazis who were killed there. The zombie makeup used in the movie isn't too bad on some of the featured zombies; I particularly like the zombies that are in advanced stages of decay. Several people are eaten alive, but the gore is rather minimal compared to most other films of the genre.

Zombie movie fanatics might want to check this one out, but it really is nothing of a must-see within the pantheon of zombie exploitation flicks. It is a public domain movie, so one might be able to find it for free online. It is also included with the "Chilling Classics" 50 movie boxed set, although the transfer is fairly poor.
