I Am Legend Synopsis

An acclaimed SF novel about vampires becomes a stunning new movie starring Will Smith. The last man on earth is not alone ...Robert Neville is the last living man on Earth ...but he is not alone. Every other man, woman and child on the planet has become a vampire, and they are hungry for Neville's blood. By day he is the hunter, stalking the undead through the ruins of civilisation. By night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawn. How long can one man survive like this?

I Am Legend Press Reviews

I Am Legend is a better, tighter, sharper book than Dracula which makes it the best vampire novel ever written. It's a terrifying thriller, but also a canny moral lesson with an unforgettable finish. -- Kim Newman EMPIRE Parts are very scary and vivid, while there's also the tale of a man who lives alone and spends his days scavenging for food and desperately hoping to find another human, and his nights in fear. Don't just see the film, experience this story as it was first told. -- John West COVENTRY TELEGRAPH
