Because of Richard Matheson's incredibly influential novel, I AM LEGEND, Vampires became the stuff of Science Fiction. And because George A. Romero was inspired by THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (adapted from Matheson's novel), when he made NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, zombies also moved from the supernatural to science for the second time and this time it stuck. Zombies became the stuff of science and launched entire franchises like RESIDENT EVIL in both video games and cinema.
