What a classic movie this is....
based on the (book) I Am Legend
(yes that thing they later made with will smith)
And also that same book that inspired (George A. Romero's - Night of The Living Dead) came this 1971 classic The Omega Man starring Charlton Heston as Dr. Robert Neville. The world as we knew it has ended "but then we know that... that is why your on my blog" anyways Nevil is the last, and apparently normal, human being left upon the world, yet crazed people come out at night and are determined to kill him and end everything they think he stands for. Robert is an enemy of the new world because he is, as referred to, "A Creature of The Wheel" A man from a time were technology ruled the world, a time were people worked hard... to improve on ways that could end mankind's existence on this planet....
One can't help but think... that the Writer of the "The Omega Man" looked long and hard at the "I Am Legend" book and probably looked deep into "The Last Man On Earth" before making this film....
Then took the more traditional path towards the story.... (Unlike "The Night of The Living Dead" that kinda broached on Dracula's thirst for blood turned into a thirst for brains and swapped that desire for love eternal into a case of bad hygiene and a desire to eat brains, then multiplied that by a global level)
But in the omega man your given the sense that all is ok when your out of a day... but be sure to be home before dark, because when the sun sets the "Family" will get you.. That's them psychotic survivors, the crazed brothers and sisters led by Matthias, a former news reporter who plans to rid the world of the old ways to bring forth a new world...

Neville has tried to cure one of them, but it ended very badly and with Matthias hell bent on destroying that one last regular human, well it leaves Neville with no choice but to seek them out, find them first... and exterminate them during daylight hours while its safe to hunt them, because come night fall, the hunt is on for him and he isn't hiding of a night, unlike they do of a day.

Clearly more money went into this than "The Last Man On Earth" and this film goes into much more detail, yet i still find the older version just as enjoyable as this, even though they both lack so much, their both really still worth a watch, this and the older version sit in my top 10 of The End Of Man collection.
