Not much. He plods around, he shoots up buildings, he goes into a movie theater and watches Woodstock and recites along with the dialogue, to indicate how often he's seen it.
Neville has become to vampires what vampires used to be to people: An unnatural monster with special powers, a creepy horror that kills indiscriminately. But this requires them to do away with the dead monster-type vampires, and with Neville, whom everyone considers a monster himself, because he stalks the daytime and kills people in their beds, leaving behind withered corpses. In the film, we watch extensive scenes of her playing with friends and running around, then later lying in her bed, succumbing gradually to the plague, moaning for her mother as she goes blind under the disease's influence. Dacascos uses the same kind of traps Smith uses to snare the undead. The quick summary: This version of the story is unintentional high camp. They look like the bargain-basement version of the mutants from Beneath The Planet Of The Apes. Which might lead canny viewers to think she's one of them, but nope, it's a red herring.
Oh, Charlton Heston, with your horse teeth and self-satisfied "I'm too sexy for this tan" drawl. He keeps mannequins around the house for company. Like Smith, he also goes into local stores and pretends to be interacting with the help and paying for his purchases, though he's talking to the rotting corpses of the staff instead of mannequins he's placed there for the purpose.
There was a war; the sides or causes are never discussed, though America apparently won. “Don’t Cancel Halloween”: Elvira Reclaims “Queen of Halloween” Throne With Brand New Music Video! What it does do that none of the others do, and which I found particularly interesting, was acknowledge the wish-fulfillment aspects of a solitary life as well.
When he saw the man lying there in his enamel coffin, he had to laugh; it seemed such a funny place to hide. Wiggins, incidentally, is either the major reason to see this film, or not to see it.
The quick summary: A disposable piece of cheapo horror, but probably fun for drunk group viewings, if only for the hilarity of Wiggins' squalling performance. In one scene, he watches astonishingly high-fidelity home movies of his dead family, and laughs hysterically at their antics, until he breaks down weeping. 1) Here's what being all alone in the world is like.
I Am Legend isn't a remake of Omega Man, but it borrows liberally and obviously from the earlier movie, almost as much as it borrows from the novella it's supposedly based on.
The story ends with him taking some poison Ruth gave him, and musing over his legacy, and how he's become legend. Flashbacks break the monotony by explaining how Neville's family died: His daughter succumbed to the plague, and her body was burned in a mass cremation pit; when his wife died, he buried her himself to spare her that, so she came back as a vampire. Even though he met her during the day, when the vampires can't come out, he thinks she might be a vampire, or she might be infected. I am Alpha and Omega, saith the Lord — Alpha is the first, Omega the last letter in the Greek alphabet. Revelation 1:8. But when her people show up in massive force, she isn't able to get them to listen to her. But Heston-Neville, borrowing a trick from his predecessor in Last Man On Earth, cures the kid with a blood infusion.
It seemed fantastic that it had taken him five months to start wondering about it. Also, rather than a factory worker, he's a brilliant lab scientist who was uniquely positioned to learn about the vampire bug as it spread, and to watch as Ben Cortman, his colleague at the lab, became increasingly frantic and paranoid about how vampires were totally taking over. Smith-Neville has a dog; eventually, it gets infected with the vampire disease and he has to kill it, though where the dog death amounted to a single sentence in the novella, it's the most plaintive, heartbreaking scene in the movie. Nonetheless, she develops a sympathy for him, and confesses that yes, she's carrying the vampire plague, and she's a spy and an infiltrator, and her people are coming for him. She must contend with a cult of zombie-like survivors who’ve ingested cleaning products that alter their DNA, as she seeks to find out what happened and where to get a decent cup of coffee. Proceed with appropriate caution.

You are the refuse of the past.") Wiggins, on the other hand, is terrible. Overall, the whole film is a little stiff and staid, but it takes the subject matter pretty seriously, and it's mildly spooky and solidly interesting to watch. None of the other vampires speak, though presumably they have some brains, since the women keep stripping and dancing luridly to try to draw him out. Maybe he never even had a wife, child, and dog. One commentator got on my case for even mentioning it in my review, thereby lending it any legitimacy whatsoever. No explanation, and nothing more ever said about it; all this is apparently just in there as another body blow to his humanity. It was simultaneously exciting, liberating, and kind of a "duh!" Anyway. But boy, if you have the hots for Heston's oiled-up, half-naked bod, yet you don't like films about gladiators, this is the movie for you. Which is about as close as I Am Legend gets to the book. Zombie-fighting aside, I Am Omega is a pretty slack film; like the others, it spends a lot of time just watching its star on his daily business, which in this case, includes planting a ton of bombs to blow up "the city" for some reason. There are exactly two aspects of I Am Omega that none of the other films tackled, and that I actually found interesting: First off, Dacascos' character is not immune to the killer plague like all his predecessors in the last-man-on-earth role. Has three awesome cats. Why I Am a Hindu – Hardcover Sale! In fact, some of them have so little to do with the source material that for this column, I'm not going to bother with what the films change from the book; it'll be much shorter and simpler to discuss what they actually keep. Elvira is telling the story of her own “quarantine apocalypse” adventure with Dynamite Entertainment, launching new comic book The Omega Ma’am over on Kickstarter today. In fact, it seems to be an adaptation of the I Am Legend script, made on no budget and rushed to DVD by a group of people trading on the anticipation and huge marketing push for Legend. But frankly, all the films have pretty big problems, and the novella's plodding tedium just doesn't justify its killer ending for me. That aside, what does I Am Legend take from "I Am Legend"? He has a gallery of Polaroids of his experiments, which amounts to a wall of pictures of the dead, and she looks at it with sympathy for his victims, and more than a little sad condemnation of his work. She represents the faction of infected people who never died, so while they're essentially vampires, they aren't mindless monsters, and they're rebuilding society. Alternate editions feature a beautiful watercolor cover by artist Dave Acosta or a photo cover. He has the stink of oil and electrical circuitry about him. The quick summary: I've already reviewed this film, so I don't have a ton more to say. Much of it is long passages of trivial detail about what he's thinking and doing, and given his simple life, he tends to think and do the same things over and over. Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed. Isn't it dull and awful? That's being a little flippant.
