Neville has conducted research on his own blood to find that he has immunity to the plague that makes people turn into gruesome, albino monsters.

The review of this Movie prepared by David Fletcher

Check out this cautionary tale of the consequences of biological warfare. As the proverbial last man on Earth,the current NRA prez is compelled to frequently exercise his Second Amendment rights as he fights to cure a plague that's killed 99 percent of the human race and turned a lot of the remaining 1 percent into grotesque blood-drinking mutants.
