Oasis of the Zombies (originally called L'Abîme des Morts-Vivants / The Abyss of the Living Dead) is a 1982 film by director Jesús Franco for French producer Marius Lesoeur.
The plot involves treasure hunters who track down a lost fortune in Nazi gold in the desert, only to discover that the treasure is still guarded by the Afrika Korps soldiers transporting it, who have become zombies.
The film has also been released over the years as Bloodsucking Nazi Zombies, Le Tresor des Morts Vivants and Treasure of the Living Dead.
Franco filmed a "Spanish version" simultaneously with the French version (under the title La tumba de los Muertos Vivientes), probably to placate Lina Romay (since the French producer had chosen other actors to be in the "real version"). But that version has never been released outside of Spain, if at all.
