“I Am Legend” by Richard Matheson…

13 Dec

Robert Matheson’s “I Am Legend”

With the movie dropping tomorrow, I thought I drop a post about the origin of the story, Richard Matheson’s novel I Am Legend – published in 1954.  I’ve been amped up to see this movie for multiple reasons; I love vampire/zombie movies, I love New York City, and I love end of the world scenarios as well as different authors and directors take on all of the above.  Apparently its a riveting read and I intend to grab a copy ASAP.  Also researching this I learned that this book has had two film adaptations, I Am The Last Man On Earth as well as The Omega Man starring Charlton Heston.  From the hype it looks like both the movie and the book deliver so check’em out.

    Will Smith is usually on point with these type of movies (ie. Independence Day & I, Robot). I checked out a few reviews this morning and it’s looking pretty promising. I might peep this at an IMAX this weekend.

    Thanks for crediting me with the movie, but it was Richard Matheson’s idea.
