Amidst all the Zombie Talk: I am Legend

     Alright, no zombies in the novel by Matheson, but vampires. Still George Romero took a lot of inspiration from this. I finished this quickly just before the end of the 5th of June. I still don't think others appreciate how influential this is. Vampires (undead). Science. One human (apparently). Survival.
     There are existential themes here. But I believe if I mentioned them it would mean talking about some specifics in the novel.
