This last night deals with the mutation of the human race in the near and the far flung future. It starts off with George Pal’s classic, THE TIME MACHINE (1960), where time traveler George (Rod Taylor), travels thousands of years into the future and meets the fearsome underground dwelling (and cannibalistic) Morlocks. Charlton Heston makes his second appearance in the festival, this time as the title hero of Boris Sagal’s OMEGA MAN (1971). In this second adaptation of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend, The survivors of the human race have been turned into a race of nocturnal albino mutants by a plague brought on by a biological war.
Keep in mind, all times are Eastern Daylight Time.
