The Last Man on Earth stars Vincent Price as the sole survivor of a worldwide plague that revives its victims as bloodthirsty vampires. During the day, he canvasses his abandoned hometown, tracking down and stalking his former friends and neighbors, always making sure to return before nightfall, when the dead rise to assault his fortified house.
Hope arrives in the form of an apparently normal young woman (Franca Bettoia), however her agenda proves to be even more sinister than that of the vampires.
