The early 1970s version, The Omega Man with Charlton Heston, turned it into a narcissistic Christ allegory. The 2000 version, I am Legend, with Will Smith, deliberated on a rationalist and a Christian subtext, Hollywood choosing the placating Christian subtext, completely inverting the rationalist origins of the screen myth and making it a blandly re-assuring endorsement of Christian belief&- religious Hollywood propganda.From Omega to Alpha is a systematic analysis of the process whereby the rationalist | atheist allegory is inverted to Christian propaganda in the course of the successive screen versions.

It is an essay in semiotic deconstruction in the quest for a cinema of rationalism.
