Get a dog, they said. A Saint Bernard is a loving breed, they said. Nothing bad will happen, they said. You worry to much, they said. Well…we’ll see…

Yes friends its another entry from one of the masters of horror, Stephen King and this time around he’s using mans best friend to scare the shit out of you. What makes this movie a little scarier is that your dog could get rabies, go all Amanda Bynes and start throwing your bong out the window and trying to eat your face. Look its not that I’m saying that your dog is definitely going to get rabies and chew your genitals off, I’m not saying that. I’m not saying that two days after Halloween someone will find your pic-a-poo, Skittles, eating your face. I’m not saying that. Sweet dreams…

Cujo was a happy puppy out in the world having a great time exploring when out of nowhere he gets bitten by a bat. From there his day goes to hell and Cujo becomes a very bad dog (too corny). Mom and son are headed on a road trip to see her sister when their path crosses Cujos shortly after he has killed his owners, so of course their very reliable Pinto breaks down in the sweltering sun. Temperatures are rising inside the car and with Cujo waiting to dip both of them in salsa on the outside, the situation gets desperate and mommy has a tough decision to make.

I won’t spoil it for you by telling you that they changed the ending from the book, well if you haven’t read the book it won’t spoil it for you. This is one of those great corn syrup dyed red, 80’s horror films that we all love to watch, it has some good scares and will convince your children they don’t need a dog. For those reasons and more Cujo gets a rating of: Watch It With Your Four Legged Friends. Till next time friends, stay entertained.
