32 Days of Halloween IV, Movie Night No. 19: The Last Woman on Earth

Last Woman on Earth

Could someone please re-work this so the theme song is “Love is Like Oxygen” by Sweet? It’s tonight’s pick, the Roger Corman-helmed 1960 film, The Last Woman on Earth. What happens when oxygen becomes a premium and the only people who survive the apocalypse are the ones who were conveniently scuba diving at the time? It’s sort of like a more straightforward version of The Quiet Earth–this film makes my head hurt less. Note: the film was written by Robert Towne, best known for scribing–along with a slew of other projects–Chinatown. Towne also appears among the trio of leads in the film as the lawyer, credited as Edward Wain. Enjoy!

Last year at this time we were watching Duel. The year before that, it was the original 1942 Cat People.
