Editorial Reviews

Robert, a student at an English university, receives word of his father's unexpected death and returns home to Africa. While reading his father's dairies, Robert learns of the obsession that led to his death: $6,000,000 in Nazi gold that remains buried at an oasis in the Sahara desert, protected by the restless, rotting souls who died protecting it. Using his inheritance, Robert bands together with three fellow students to wrest the unclaimed fortune from the dunes of the dead!

If you watch this in a certain way, with your tongue in cheek, ready for a pastiche of almost unrelated scenes knit together into a plot, willing to look aside and admire the beauty of the sand shots and the classy interiors when things get boring, able to throb along with the drum/organ soundtrack, ready for some shocks, willing to accept (and enjoy) the limitations of a low budget film, well ... this film just might change your life! All of Jess Franco's films, even his "bad" ones, make me happy. I was laughing all the way through this - till the end. What else do you want? It's art meets the cannibal zombies.

Two sexy, nubile half naked young girls on a trip to the desert wander off into a grave of supposed long dead Nazi's
(obviously awakened by the wiggling of bum's in tight sports shorts!) for whom they quickly become lunch.
Then in a rather lengthy flashback the story of lost gold and Nazi's is explained and a greedy young pup through his
connection with his father, is now on the trail of the lost gold.
Eventually he and his amigos arrive in northern Africa, to find the German Captain from the convoy of Nazi's, on the brink
of death, after he and his entourage were attacked by the gooey zombies after trying to recover the lost gold.
Despite warnings from the superstitious locals about the "walking dead", and the death of the German officer, the greedy
young uns are still intent on going to the oasis to find the gold.
Finally they arrive at the oasis and find some of their recent acquaintances slaughtered by the zombies. The night is upon
the young scallywags and soon too is the living dead. But, they pluckily fight them off with Molotov cocktails (which they
learnt to make at college!!) and torches (flames not batteries!). At which the zombies graciously shuffle off their immortal
coil.
There are not many zombies in here, maybe a dozen or so, so it aint exactly "Dawn of The Dead 1978". But what we do have
is a pretty dry and flaky bunch, with the occasional gory, gooey, worm ridden phisog.
Oasis isn't exactly fast paced, it takes a hell of a long time for the young gold hunters do actually get to the desert, and even
longer to get to the oasis.
These Nazi zombies must have rotten wooden limbs as a creaking always precedes their appearance, like 2 tree branches
rubbing together in the wind. And talking of wind!

Oasis of the Zombies (Jess Franco, 1983)
First, let me emphasize the good thing about this movie: the incredible score. Were it released now, I'd call it an interesting mix of trance and pseudo-ethnic music (rather like Muslimgauze, but with not as deft a touch), with undertones of death ambient and noise. But since those genres didn't really exist at the time, Franco was well out on the bleeding edge. If you must see this film, see it for the soundtrack. As for the rest...
Jess Franco has directed almost two hundred films in his long and completely undistinguished career (which, I might add, is still going strong, with two films released in 2002 and one slated for release in 2003 it doesn't look like we'll see until 2004). A large number of them have been softcore films. There's far more of Tinto Brass than Lucio Fulci around Jess Franco, which makes me wonder why on earth I'd have been expecting Oasis of the Zombies to be a decent flick. Oh, well, it's a Nazi zombie movie, and I got it cheap.
Yes, a Nazi zombie movie. I had always thought Shock Waves to be the only one of its kind, but it seems there's a whole subgenre of them (all inspired by Louis Pauwels' supposedly-nonfiction book The Morning of the Magicians). And of those I've seen, Shock Waves still remains far and away the best of them. But I digress.
In this one, the Nazi zombies are guarding a treasure in gold bars they'd taken from the Afrika Korps during World War II. The gold, however, never made it out of the desert; in fact, it never made it out of the oasis where the ambush was staged. After fierce fighting on both sides (`what? no one told me this was a war movie!"), the only survivor is the commander of the Afrika Korps.

This zombie movie is according to most people one of the worst ever made and I don't agree. I really can't get enough of this one, and I certainly don't mean this in any sarcastic way. As a mater a fact, I have nothing with zombie movies really, except with the teriffic punk-spoof "Return of the living dead" - and this one, "Oasis of the living dead" (as my own VHS edition is still called.)

So what's wrong with it then, hey?

Let me post the opposite question as an answer: so what's to be liked about this then, hey?

I like it's amateuristic-looking aproach: it gives you that delicious documentary-feel. This is mainly thanx to the constant neuroticly zooming-in of the camera; first it's irritating, I admit, but after a while it becomes part of that swinging cinema-variété style, and you start to appreciate it, that is of course, if you're on the same radio-frequence here as I am.

Then you have this wonderful eerie organ tune, which is as simple and effective as the theme music of such flicks as "Halloween", "Suspiria" and "Phantasm".

Then there are the sublime moments of quietness throughout the movie, in which only sounds of nature is heard, like wind or birds. Together with the locations, from worn-down houses in nameless sun-blazed town, to the dessert and the sinister oasis itself, it works.

And talk about music: how about that sound that can best be described as "blood flowing through veins", like some chirurgical instrument is pressed against someone's arteries. It's all clever stuff the makers came up with when they knew their budget (which was, I guess, no budget at all) could not provide them with a full blown orchestra - and thank God for that.
