A estréia de Towne como roteirista (e ator!) traz sua parcela de bons diálogos e momentos interessantes, mas, de modo geral, o roteiro denuncia a pressa com que foi escrito e Corman, claro, não se preocupa muito em polir o filme com mais cuidado.

Audience Reviews for The Last Woman on Earth

Quite literally one year and 3 months after The World, The Flesh, And The Devil's release, Roger Corman came out with his version (scripted by and acted in by Robert Towne) with essentially the same story, weaned of its political and moral implications. Let's just get to the meat, shall we: the 2 last guys duking it out for the last woman left alive (she's named "Evelyn" ... get it?). Any questions? Yeah, it's cheap, but it ain't totally bad.

An amoral businessman, his neglected wife, and a straight-laced lawyer emerge from a scuba diving trip to discover that everyone else on the planet is dead. This cheap post-apocalyptic adultery drama manages to be even less interesting than the other movie Roger Corman shot back-to-back with the same cast and Puerto Rico locations, THE CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA.

Very intriguing take on a post-apocalyptic film (romance drama in an end-of-the-world setting), but could have been so much better if it had a bigger budget, tighter script, and better actors.
