It's October 3! Let's keep this horror train going with the latest installment of your new favorite podcast, Every Day Horror.
Today we dig into the Vincent Price classic The Last Man on Earth (1964). And to help me dig into this adaptation of Richard Matheson's 1954 classic I Am Legend, I'm joined by Antonella Inserra and Raven Jakubowski, the creators of the forthcoming podcast series The Apocalist Book Club.
These two are poring over every apocalyptic novel in chronological order, so they asked if we could talk about one of the more influential apocalyptic stories of the 20th century. When The Last Man on Earth was released, it wasn't beloved, not even by Matheson. But, over time, this Price film has become a classic.
So how does The Last Man on Earth hold up? And where does it fit into the pantheon of apocalyptic fiction? Listen and find out!
