The Last Man on Earth   lastmanonearth 82x120 full length movies Director: Ubaldo Ragona & Sidney Salkow
Writer: Richard Matheson (novel “I Am Legend”) & William F. Leicester
Release Year: 1964

Alive among the lifeless… alone among the crawling creatures of evil that make the night hideous with their inhuman craving!

An adaptation of the novel I Am Legend about a man trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, defending his home against hordes of zombie-vampires every night. There are many adaptations of this book and this is considered by many the best (the people with taste), which is not that surprising since it has Vincent Price instead of Will freakin’ Smith or Charlton cold dead hands Heston. And because the mood of the movie set by the desperation and loneliness of Morgan ofcourse. Also notice the similarities with Night of the Living Dead, released 4 years later.
