SCI-FI B Movies “The Last Man on Earth”

Made in 1964 this movie is the first movie adaptation of the book 'I Am Legend,' which centres on a lone scientist who has survived a worldwide pandemic that has turned human beings into mindless nocturnal flesh eating zombies.

Our movie for the weekend is ‘The Last Man On Earth’ starring Vincent Price.

Made in 1964 this movie is the first movie adaptation of the book ‘I Am Legend,’ which centres on a lone scientist who has survived a worldwide pandemic that has turned human beings into mindless nocturnal flesh eating zombies. Two further movie adaptations of  ‘I Am Legend’ came after this with 1971 film ‘The Omega Man,’ which starred Charlton Heston and the 2007 film ‘I Am Legend,’ which starred Will Smith.

‘The Last Man On Earth’ is considered by many to be an under appreciated classic.

We hope you enjoy this presentation.

    I read recently that Richard Matheson didn’t like any of the adaptions of his work but that this one he considered closest to what he wrote.

      Doesn’t surprise me. It seems that Hollywood have all manner of creative license when it comes to adaptations, but when you read some of the books that are adapted you usually find yourself wondering how much stuff could be adapted. Lord of The Rings being a prime example. I never thought for a moment that we’d see an adaptation of that on film that folk would like. But that said its amazing how much is actually missing from those adaptations.
