Every year I spend the majority of the month of October watching as many horror movies as I possibly can. So I decided to take it upon myself to list off the greatest horror movies ever made. I felt the need to break up the list into several categories. You see, usually when people ask me for recommendations of what horror films they should see, they still have some idea of what sub genre they are interested in watching. So as appose to having one big jumbled list, I’ve broken it down to help with those looking for recommendations in a specific area. Please Note: by the end of the month, the last entry in this series will include a list of what I think are without a doubt, the 31 greatest horror movies ever made. »
When adapted for the big screen, even the finest novels can suffer decidedly mixed fortunes. Richard Matheson's classic 1954 book, I Am Legend, has been made into a movie no fewer than three times, most recently as a big-budget picture of the same name with Will Smith in the lead, but also in 1971 as The Omega Man, and both of these adaptations took considerable liberties with the novel that inspired them.
The best and most faithful adaptation, though, was undoubtedly the first. Filmed in Italy as L'ultimo Uomo Della Terra and starring Vincent Price, The Last Man On Earth was directed by Ubaldo Ragona and Sidney Salkow from a script initially adapted by Matheson himself.
Finished in 1961, but not released in the Us until »
