Based on the science-fiction and vampire horror novel, I am Legend, written by Richard Matheson and published in 1954. Matheson also wrote a dozen Twilight Zone episodes and the Star Trek episode “The Enemy Within.”

Along with I am Legend inspiring this film and several more, Matheson's other short stories and novels have inspired still others, including at least two noir films: his early novel Riding the Nightmare became Cold Sweat, and his Someone is Bleeding became Les seins de glace (Icy Breasts).
