Most people would finger George Romero’s 1968 Night of the Living Dead as the first modern horror film, but what about the movie that most influenced Romero? That would be 1964’s The Last Man on Earth, the first cinematic take on Richard Matheson’s 1954 book I Am Legend. (The second was 1971’s The Omega Man starring Charlton Heston. The latest is last year’s I Am Legend with Will Smith.) Vincent Price portrayed the lonely, monster-slaying protagonist of the shoddy but creepy Last Man.
