Added DiffLines:

* HeroicBSOD: The loss of [[spoiler:Sam the dog]] and his subsequent rampage resembles a DespairEventHorizon, but he comes back from it a little after being rescued by Anna and Ethan and ultimately [[spoiler:manages to finally find a human cure]].


Added DiffLines:

* NextSundayAD: Rather easy to do because civilization has completely halted in the present day (2012) but in the brief flashbacks to 2009 when it all started going wrong, it still applies.

* NiceDayDeadlyNight: The last human resident of New York, Robert Neville, is free to roam about during the day with his dog and do whatever he wants in the abandoned city. But at night, he has to board in his house, cover up his scent, and securely seal every window and door, lest [[OurVampiresAreDifferent the Darkseekers]], who can only survive in the dark, come to kill him.

* FocusGroupEnding: Infamously so, ruining most of the {{Foreshadowing}} and creating a few {{Plot Hole}}s. Originally, the ending was much closer to the novel it was based on, with [[spoiler:Neville realizing that the infected are intelligent, and just want to take back the flock member he has in his captivity in order to test his cure. A shocked Neville allows them to do this, after which the infected leaves without causing further trouble. The event leads Neville to ponder the implications of how he has been carrying out his research into finding a cure, and realizes that in the eyes of the infected, ''he'' [[HeelRealization is the monster]], as to them he is some strange creature who is abducting and killing them for seemingly no reason at all]]. In the final version of the ending [[spoiler:the intelligence of the infected is just implied, but ultimately ignored, and Neville makes a HeroicSacrifice to help the others escape with his cure]]. The original ending was eventually included as bonus material on the DVD, where it was named the "controversial" ending.

* DifferentWorldDifferentMovies: A billboard in the abandoned Times Square has a ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman'' logo. A "World's Finest" or Batman Vs. Superman film was in talks at the same time as this film, but fell through, so this reference was all we got...[[http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=106748 until 2015, that is]].
