The Last Woman on Earth

One of director Roger Corman’s lesser known early efforts is a fascinating low budget sci-fi picture that was written by Robert Towne and distributed by Corman’s own Filmgroup company. Antony Carbone is Harold, a shady entrepreneur constantly at odds with the law. He and his wife, Evelyn (Betsy Jones-Moreland, who we’ve always thought looked like Allison Hayes’ sister), meet up with Harold’s attorney, Martin (writer Towne doing double duty under pseudonym, Edward Wain), in Puerto Rico. When the three go on a scuba-diving excursion, they resurface to find everyone else dead and they must wear their oxygen tanks at first to keep from succumbing to the lack of breathable air. As the days pass, the trio uncomfortably adjusts to their new life. A love triangle materializes and Harold finds himself odd man out, something that will cause tragedy before the end titles unscroll. One of Corman’s first films shot in color, Last Woman on Earth was shot back-to-back with two other Corman-produced Puerto Rico pix, Creature from the Haunted Sea and Battle of Blood Island. Last Woman… was originally released on a double bill with his much more famous Little Shop of Horrors.

“The low-key approach to the end of the world… is fairly effective, with the off-screen apocalypse offering an eerie mystery for the characters to solve…” – Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique Online
