In a post-epidemic nightmare world, scientist Robert Morgan (Vincent Price) is the only man immune to the plague which has transformed the entire population of the Earth into vampire-like creatures.

Some would consider this version better than the 1971 remake with Charlton Heston, The Omega Man, but that isn't much of an achievement.
This first-ever adaptation of Richard Matheson's novel I Am Legend is easily the most faithful of the three; unfortunately, it is also the least entertaining.
price is grand
Price retrata com talento a angústia e o cansaço de seu personagem, mas os vampiros ridiculamente estúpidos e a dublagem capenga boicotam seus esforços.
Where the film fails as a narrative - and it fails rather mightily in places - it succeeds as a mood piece.
A chilling study of loneliness and an acting tour de force for Price as the last survivor of a dead race, and not exactly the feel-good movie of 1964.
Worth seeing for fans of older genre movies, even though the film's pacing is often a bit too languid for its own good.
One of Vincent Price most peculiar films, made in Italy, with poor dubbing of the Italian actors and cheesy special effects
If you are a fan of the way Vincent engages such tacky post-apocalypse fantasy subjects, this one should catch your fancy.
Flawed, but nicely grim sci-fi horror with a miscast Price
