For all Robert Neville knows, he may be the last nonvampire in the world. He does know he is immune to the bacterium that has transformed seemingly everyone else. Assuming he can't be the only one who is immune, he reconnoiters for other normal humans by day and staves off the vampires in his barricaded house by night. If this plot sounds familiar, that is because George A. Romero adapted it to create the first postmodern horror movie, Night of the Living Dead.
