“Vincent Price wasn’t very nice. In The House of Usher he paid the price”
– Mikey Wild
“The Last Man on Earth” is without a doubt the best screen adaption of Richard Matheson’s “I Am Legend”. Not that it’s facing stiff competition for that honor from the unintentionally hilarious Chuck Heston vehicle “Omega Man” (1971) or the meh 2007 “fresh Prince of Zombie City” version.
Vincent Price was always a superior actor, but in “The Last Man on Earth” he goes up and beyond the call of duty in a film so bleak that it makes “The Masque of the Red death” look like “Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine”.
