If was one man left, I can’t imagine a more fitting person than Vincent Price. In this production of Richard Matheson’s “I Am Legend,” Price tries to maintain his sanity despite the world turning into vampires. While later versions would use zombies instead of vampires, the core of Matheson’s story remains as a testament to the human spirit in face of a certain demise, highlighted by a creepy yet melancholy performance from Price. The budget is small, but like “The House on Haunted Hill,” the filmmakers make the most of it by highlighting the haunting writing and chilling performances.
Final Grade: B-
