Richard Matheson's apocalyptic vampire tale I AM LEGEND is one of my favorite books. And though we don't think of it as one of the most oft-adapted pieces of fiction, every couple decades somebody gets the idea to try another swing at adapting the book to screen. This has resulted in The Last Man on Earth starring Vincent Price, The Omega Man with Charlton Heston, and 2007's I Am Legend starring Will Smith. At Scriptophobic, I wrote a new piece examining all the adaptations and how they differ from the source material. Check it out!
