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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Misunderstood masterpiece April 7, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Jess Franco must be one of the most frustrating directors I know: every time when I think I should just give up on him after sitting through three of four atrocious pictures, you get something like `Oasis of the Zombies', which makes you realize just why you sat through the previous duds. There's no director more unreliable than Franco, but when you think about it this may not be so strange after all. When you look at even the most talented directors in the world, like Sternberg, Hitchcock or Fellini, in the end they didn't make more than, say 10-20 films that were really great, if that. So it's obviously not fair to expect something else from Jess Franco and the only problem is of course he made so many of them! The sifting through can be rather tiresome at times, but I suppose it goes with the territory and ultimately makes those few pearls all the more satisfying.

Watching this immediately after `Zombie Lake', the first thing that really surprised me was that this blu-ray looks even better than the Rollin and I still can't believe how good this actually looks! From the rich vibrant colors of the beginning to the muted browns and grays of the unforgettable climax, this is a very consistent and pleasing transfer, making it one of Franco's most satisfying movies on a purely visual level. My favorite Franco movies tend to be his more abstract and meditative ones (think `Succubus', `Countess Perverse' or `Macumba Sexual'), so this is just my cup of tea. I realize however that I always seem to be one of the few who see it this way, as most people seem to hate precisely those movies I tend to love, and `Oasis of the Zombies' seems to be no exception.

3.0 out of 5 stars if you watch in a certain way January 29, 2006
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oasis of the Zombies May 25, 2002
Format:DVD
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars zombie Oasis May 25, 2009
Format:DVD
Another one that I thought might be decent turned out to be a dud. This is an hour plus of people running around trying to find some secret treasure and 15 minutes of similar looking people with mud on their faces moving very, very slowly. You may turn into a zombie from watching this crap.

2.0 out of 5 stars More Eurotrash from Franco January 25, 2001
Format:DVD
This is a re-edited version of the Franco's earlier "La Tumba de los Muertos vivientes". It's not one of Franco's best, lacking the sex and violence and monster mayhem of some of other work, but the zombie scenes are OK and complete with maggot-faced creatures shuffling through the sand. Quite dull, but hopefully the start of a long long long series of Eurocine films!

2.0 out of 5 stars Franco should have stuck with his Killer Barbies. December 22, 2003
Format:DVD
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.
