I AM LEGEND Book/Movie Review

Rating...2.5; maybe 3

First let me state that I think Mr. Matheson is a very great writer.  I read several of his short stories and they are quite scary and creepy.  I can see how he inspired Stephen King with these works.  Matheson wrote several episodes for The Twilight Zone, which include one of my favorites, "Nightmare at 20,000 feet".
Yes, a young William Shatner

Several of his books have been adapted to film.  One that completely shocked me, considering he is a horror/sci fi author is his adapted film "Somewhere in Time".  I couldn't believe it when I read it.  I love that film and think it is one of the most beautiful love films.  That's a book and film review for a different day.
