MOVIE REVIEW
THE LAST MAN ON EARTH - 1964
Produzioni La Regina, Associated Producers (API), American International Pictures (AIP)
Rated: N/A

This is the movie where George R. Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, began,

with the first version of Richard Matheson's chilling story, I AM LEGEND. Many movies have been made from Matheson's story, none have stayed true to the horrific end. Perhaps it's considered too scary for any audience?

Maybe at one time, I don't think it is today. Expectations have been molified by all of the generic turns previous movies have taken.

Without this influential movie, there may never have been Zombies as a powerful third tier of Horror (alongside vampires and werewolves).

However, while Matheson didn't think too much of this first version, he went on record as saying that Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, inspired by this Vincent Price movie, was as close as anyone came to his original vision.
