... he distracted, sloppy camerawork, perfunctory scripting, flat dubbing, and ratty make-up make this one for the Franco-philes, and for those who find camp value in clumsy, shamelessly brazen exploitation.

[Director Jesus Franco's] command of audio/visual augmentation is a force to be reckoned with.

Audience Reviews for Oasis of the Zombies

Without a doubt the very worst Zombie Movie I have seen to date. I found this in the Mill Creek Chiller Classic 50 Movie collection. I wouldn't touch this one with a 10ft pole otherwise. The Zombies had plastic eyes that looked two different directions, it was a joke, slow, took forever to see the zombies, pass it up.

I decided to dive into a Franco boxset going in order from lowest IMDB rating to best, so I wasn't expecting this to be anything less than terrible. I was not disappointed in that expectation.

A bunch of remarkably cheap looking zombies make short work of explorers, there's some terrible acting, etc. It's as silly as you might expect, but I suppose it might be fun if you have friends around to poke fun at it with you.
