I Am Legend - Movie Review (REQUEST WEEK)
The Legend of Ridley Scott’s I Am Legend
Neville survives nightly attacks by hordes eager for his blood while trying to overcome the crushing loneliness of being the last human left. This new version radically altered the plot, turning Neville into a manly scientist with an eager trigger finger. The vampires now became 'Hemocytes', intelligent creatures with emaciated physiques and terrifying speed and agility. Scott saw the potential to turn this high concept idea into a merging of blockbuster and art movie, and his ambitious plans are what ultimately doomed the project.

Scott also collaborated with effects company Studio ADI on the look of the creatures.

Smith has a few more companions, including an expressive German shepherd, some department store mannequins and a high-powered rifle.
