Review for The Last Man on Earth:
In the post-apocalyptic science-fiction film The Last Man on Earth, a plague has wiped out most of humanity, and those it hasn’t wiped out have turned into fearsome mutants — all except for one man, a scientist (Dr. Robert Morgan -- played by Vincent Price) who alone has an immunity to the disease.
Called "the best Vincent Price movie ever made" by Phil Hall of Film Threat Magazine, The Last Man on Earth is the first (and many would argue, the best) screen version of the classic Richard ("Twilight Zone") Matheson story "I Am Legend."
Filmed in 1964 as an Italian/American co-production, the film was later remade in 1971 with Charlton Heston as The Omega Man as well as more recently as I Am Legend (2007), starring Will Smith in the title role.
The Last Man on Earth will be presented Monday, June 18, at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a mix and mingle time. The showing will be at Heritage House Arts & Civic Center; 1428 Jenkins Road. Admission is free (a simple potluck side, 'mocktail', dessert or beverage is suggested).
The running time of The Last Man on Earth is 1:29. The film is rated 'NR' (not rated) but a rating of 'PG-13' is suggested by the IMDB Parents Guide.
