    THE LAST MAN ON EARTH starring Vincent Price
    October 2, 2009  Video   



    While not a zombie movie proper, TLMOE is a creepy retelling of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend with plenty of 1960s era zombie movie themes.

    1. Its good but not as good as the book, much better than the more recognised Omega Man. It also helps that Vincent Price can make any film creepy.

    2. The film was made on a shoestring but captures the feel of the book pretty well. My only gripe, and it’s so minor as to not spoil the viewing experience, is that I never got the sense of time passing like I did in the book. I mean, he was the last man for YEARS. Long enough to learn enough biology to work on a cure, but that never really comes across in the movie.

      This film is a million-billion times better than the recent remake, and a few thousand times better than Omega Man.

    5. Matheson, after working on the screenplay for this movie, decided to have his name removed because he was unhappy with it. I don’t now why. This is one of my favorite horror films ever and the absolute first to present the “modern” zombie-apocalypse-survivor-in-a-fort genre of film. TLMOE is superior to the remake in every way except effects (and Will Smith was good but c’mon man, it’s Vincent “Effing” Price). I love this film and drag it out every Halloween. P.S sorry for the bump, just found this site and loving it.
