Light up the darkness

Movie: I am Legend. Adapted from the classic 50s novel of the same name by Richard Matheson. I watched this while alone in the house at night and since the weather is warming, the neighbors were out and about outside. With the movie being so intense, every little noise outside was making me think one of the creatures was about to break in. Pretty much a one man show, that man being the talented and always good looking Will Smith, the movie moved at a fast, exciting pace. Bonus points for the Bob Marley music. It’s been a few years since I’ve seen the other film based on the novel, The Omega Man starring Charlton Heston (RIP), which might have been slower but still as gripping. Makes one think how you would survive and how you would feel if you truly were the last person living in a vampire filled land. Read the book, watch the films. With some company.
