The Last Man On Earth - 1964
The Last Man on Earth
A movie starring the brilliant actor Vincent Price (The House on the
Haunted Hill, The Fall of the House of Usher) about a man who sees
everyone die of a mysterious plague. Post mortem zombies appear when
the corpses are not burnt and keep the army busy with their disposal.
Price, a scientist that worked with bacteria, turns out to be immune
to this disease and becomes the Last Man on Earth.
As in most horror movies, there is a twist. He is not as alone as we expect. During the night the dead rise and hunt for blood. A woman infected with the disease discovers a way to postpone the effects of the disease and doesn't die or turn into a zombie. Herself and a gang of others that are partaking in this treatment become scared of The Last Man On Earth.
Eventually Price pays with his own life by being shot.
