31 Days of Horror - Day 12 (CUJO)
It's synergy today on my blogs. On All Good Things, I posted about Cat People. And here I'm posting about a killer dog. A saint bernard gets bit by a bat and contracts rabies. A mother and her son take their car to the mechanic's shop and must endure a day long siege by the rabid mutt. Cujo was one of my favorite horror movies from the 80's and it still holds up today. Dee Wallace Stone, a mainstay of 80's movies such as E.T., The Howling, and Critters is perfect as the mom trying to save herself and her son. The attacks by Cujo are brutal and harrowing. Based on the Stephen King best-seller.
(1983) Starring Dee Wallace Stone, Danny Pintauro, Daniel Hugh Kelly, and Ed Lauter.
