If you've been following along, then you know that Saturday night is a time to honor and appreciate my most favorite horror movies.
Tonight I am watching The Last Man on Earth with Vincent Price. I purchased The Vincent Price Collection II set expressly for this movie. I had previously only seen this copy from 2000, so I am looking forward to finally seeing it with greater clarity. It's dubbed, which gives it that same strange mismatched dialogue that we saw in Black Sunday. Apocalyptic stories are some of my favorites.
We see the sun rise over a desolate city that's littered with corpses and a helpful church marquee announcing the end of the world. Back before Night of the Living Dead, it had to be a jarring image. We glimpse a man through a window who could be another corpse, except he awakens to an alarm, and we learn from the calendars he's hastily drawn on his wall that it's been three years since everyone around him perished.
