Movie: The Last Man on Earth
The Story, in a nutshell: The entire population has been turned into vampire-ish monsters, and Vincent Price is the only human left alive.
Reason it’s awesome: Well, it’s Vincent Price, who is really one of the greatest horror actors who has ever lived. It’s also, strangely enough, an Italian film, so it has a different air to it. One of the reasons I find it so fascinating is that Price’s character, Dr. Robert Morgan, is a very focused, driven man, and now that he can’t be a great father and scientist, he’s just going to be the best vampire slayer he can be. His daily routine of planning and killing vampires is admirable, amusing, and sad.
