Description by OLDIES.com:
Panic in Year Zero (1962, 92 minutes):
"This movie will scare the daylights out of you," warned the LA Herald-Examiner
upon the picture's premiere - and with good reason. Released just before the Cuban Missile Crisis, this chiller-thriller realistically details what might happen to the survivors of a nuclear attack. Academy Award winner Ray Milland leads a superb cast, including Jean Hagen and teen star Frankie Avalon.
The Last Man on Earth (1964, 87 minutes): Master of the Midnite Movie Vincent Price delivers a tour-de-force performance while his walking-dead co-stars literally chew up the scenery behind him! Price plays the sole survivor of a lethal virus that transforms all other humans into vampire-like zombies. He fights them nightly, until, desperately lonely and at the end of his rope, he makes a startling discovery...
PANIC IN YEAR ZERO: A nuclear attack leaves Los Angeles in chaos and ignites panic throughout the city. Trying to escape the disaster, a family heads for their usual vacation spot only to encounter a group of hoodlums along the way.
THE LAST MAN ON EARTH: Based on Richard Matheson's SF thriller I AM LEGEND, THE LAST MAN ON EARTH is about a man who survives a global plague only to be stalked nightly by zombielike victims who call out his name. Vincent Price stars as Robert Morgan, a scientist who tried desperately to come up with a cure for an airborne virus that was killing people around the globe. Although he could not develop a serum in time to save his family, he himself seems to be immune from the disease. Thus, he is left to wander the streets by day, staking zombies, then barricading himself in his house each night as the zombies try to break in and kill him. Price is excellent in the role, going about his horrible business as if it were just another day: waking up and eating breakfast, putting on a suit, calmly staking the zombies, making dinner, listening to records at night. But when he suddenly sees what looks like another living soul out in the daylight, his world is suddenly turned inside out.
