Storyline

When a plague devastated life on Earth, the population died or became a sort of zombie living in the dark. Dr. Robert Morgan is the unique healthy survivor on the planet, having a routine life for his own survival: he kills the night creatures along the day and maintains the safety of his house, to be protected along the night. He misses his beloved wife and daughter, consumed by the outbreak, and he fights against his loneliness to maintain mentally sane. When Dr. Morgan finds the contaminated Ruth Collins, he uses his blood to heal her and he becomes the last hope on Earth to help the other contaminated survivors. But the order of this new society is scary. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great Movie Displaying A Lost Art in Cinematography
6 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie's copyright has expired and it can be downloaded from several places around the internet legally, so I recently picked it up. I am a fan of post-apocalyptic movies, but I believe anyone who has a decent attention span will appreciate this flick, as my girlfriend did who is not necessarily into these types of films.

The plot is just as the title states, Vincent Price is the last man left on Earth (as far as he knows). A plague wiped out the planet and he is left to make a life out of what is left behind. The first half of this movie is entirely spent building up the character Price plays while the second half is spent moving through the main plot of the film. This is what I refer to in my summary..the cinematography..the fact that five minutes can go by without a piece of dialog and still captivate you is something lost in todays films. Whereas today's movies do more hand holding of the viewer, this film leaves your mind to wander and fantasize. That is what does it for me and probably many people. It is a soulful movie filled with thought. Price's character finds a place of piety in the viewer's heart and you pull for him throughout.

I recommend this movie to anyone looking for something in the genre of just interested in seeing a different style of film making from a bygone era. Time well spent with this one folks.
