Movie Info

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.

Audience Reviews for Tumba de los muertos vivientes, La (Desierto de los zombies, El)(Grave of the Living Dead)

"Let the dead bury the dead."-The Sheik (Antonio Mayans) Technically speaking, OASIS OF THE ZOMBIES Aka GRAVE OF THE LIVING DEAD is down right horrible. But it's not the worst nazi zombie film out there, try Franco's ZOMBIE LAKE.

THINGS I LEARNED WATCHING THIS MOVIE! 1. High heels are great for the desert. So are jean cut offs, even though all the men have their shirts OFF or open to plunging depths of belly button hair. 2. The British used US Army jeeps in the North African theater of World War II. 3. You come first is not a promise. 4. Most of the budget went up the actor's noses. In fact there is one scene where you can actually see the coke on his nose (1:00:47). 5. Even jeeps are difficult to drive in the sand! 6. While it takes nearly ten minutes for the zombies to emerge from the sand, when the sun rises they vanish! 7. If it takes all you friends getting eaten to find "yourself" you might be a jerk. 8. Sand burns really well and some times explodes! WHAT IT TOOK TO MAKE THIS MOVIE! A spider. A still of some Arabian desert architecture. Four Camels. Five jeeps. Some old German military equipment. A couple of earth worms. NO Exterior lights, since the night is filmed in the middle of the afternoon. One special effects record for the howling night wind and crickets and exotic jungle birds that will not stop squawking. Organ music really sets the mood! At least one fake skull. oh and a few pyrotechnics! Quote of the movie - "Lets get some bottles and make Molotov cocktails - like in school!" I wouldn't say avoid this one, since its a Franco classic, I would just warn you that you are in for a really annoying movie.
