Zombie Sexploitation Posters: OASIS OF THE ZOMBIES

Oasis of the Zombies (aka. The Treasure of the Living Dead) is a very dull 1981 movie if you actually sit down to watch it. However, you wouldn't know it from this cheeky sexploitative poster art.

Leave it to the French to take a boring and low-budget Nazi zombie movie set in the desert and make the focus of the poster a young girl in short-shorts and high-heeled boots. Honestly, do those look like standard issue desert wear? Oh, and just to make sure she doesn't look too out of place, they gave her suspenders, yet given the fact that it looks like she was poured into that outfit, I'm not entirely sure what they're suspending.

I laugh to think of how many poor horny fools were duped into seeing Oasis of the Zombies after being reeled in by this poster art.
