About this movie


An Italian movie based upon the Richard Matheson novel I am Legend.  The film was originally going to be a Hammer Films production but trouble with the censors and financial backing fell through.  Was picked up by an Italian production company
Matheson wasn't pleased with the changes made to the script and the film's low production values so he gave his screen credit the pseudonym of Logan Swanson.

One of the inspirations for Night of the Living Dead.
