Oasis of the Zombies

Oasis of the Zombies is a 1981 Jesus Franco film. This is the 2nd film I've seen lately that combines zombies with Nazis. There was both a French version and a Spanish one. The American release is apparently an English dubbing of the French release.

1001 Misspent Hours calls the movie "by turns boring and charmingly dumb". I missed the charming part. The Projection Booth begins its review with this:
Oasis of the Zombies deserves some sort of eternal recognition in the annals of cinema if only for it's brilliant alternate title, Blood Sucking Nazi Zombies (take that, Snakes on a Plane!). The film itself, however, largely fails to live up to such kitschy promise, and for the most part is a fairly typical entry in the legions of cobbled-together B-movie horror films.
