Review: I Am Legend

I Am Legend I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

I have been a fan of this classic for quite a while. I last read it back in the 70s and decided to revisit it to see if it was as good as I recall. Actually, it is much better. So much is in this story that you can see being borrowed by the post-apocalyptic writers of the modern era.

What I also wondered as I re-experienced this classic tale was just how can Hollywood mess this up so badly? The story does not need any special tweaks or re-writes. It is an amazing story about the mindset of a person left seemingly all alone surrounded by vampires (not zombies). This would be a wonderful movie...IF they actually did the story that was written.
