He convinces several friends to join him on an expedition to find the gold. Kurt, a German war veteran, also seeks the treasure...but he finds a horde of terrifying zombie soldiers who have slept beneath the sands for forty years. Meanwhile, Robert's party is joined by archaeologists Conrad and Erika. Together they find the dying Kurt, who warns them of the Oasis where the Undead lurk. Ignoring Kurt's advice, the adventurers march on to the Oasis, only to find themselves among the unstoppable zombies who guard the hidden riches!

An early pioneer in the home video business, Charles Band started both MEDA
HOME ENTERTAINMENT in the late 70’s and WIZARD VIDEO in 1980.
After releasing features like THE GROOVE TUBE, FLESH GORDON and TUNNELVISION
in the standard VHS box format WIZARD VIDEO introduced the oversized “big VHS
box” which featured lurid titles such as ZOMBIE, I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, DEMONIAC
& BREEDERS! After a few short years of these big VHS box releases WIZARD
VIDEO returned to the standard size VHS box as retailers were quickly running
out of shelf space. A fond memory for people who grew up in the video store era
of the early 80’s - the big VHS box has become a rare collectable due to its
scarcity and (usually poor) condition. And now a treasure trove of original big
VHS boxes was found late last year in one of Charles Band’s and Full Moon’s
many overcrowded warehouses! 36 features are represented in this discovery with
quantities ranging from 180 boxes to 420 boxes. The 30+ year old big VHS boxes
are in mint condition as they have never been out of their original shipping
