Richard Matheson (1926-2013)

"Hell House is the scariest haunted house novel ever written. It looms over the rest the way the mountains loom over the foothills."
-- Stephen King

Rest in peace, sir.

I don't think there was ever a decent adaptation of I Am Legend, although Last Man On Earth at least has a pretty good performance by Vincent Price.

Always a huge fan of the Corman Poe movies. And he wrote my favorite Twilight Zone, Nick of Time.

He wrote the fantastic Night Stalker and Night Strangler television movies. I always thought he wrote for the series, too, but I guess not.

He wrote Jaws 3D?! Hmmm...

Oh yes!!!, the tele movies, "Night Stalker" & "Night Strangler" both mean so much to me..we bought both of those, the same time we purchased the tv series box set...<33333333333333333 Darren McGavin
