Barking Mad

Like many other Stephen King movies, Cujo follows a particular formula. In this case, having an uncommon type of monster as the antagonist. Cujo is a St. Bernard (one of the biggest dogs on earth) and the monster in question. Why is he so vicious? He was bitten by a rabid animal and contracted rabies. What makes him terrifying is the fact that a mother and her son are stranded in a car that won’t run. Though Cujo isn’t one of the better Stephen King adaptations, it’s still one of the more recognizable. Especially if you have a fear of dogs.

  1. Great movie. It reminds me of The Shining… someone/a dog in this case slowly going mad…different reasons.

    I actually have a Saint Bernard…I’ve had two of them. A sweeter breed you will never find BUT… they can pull up to 1000 lbs so yea they could hurt you if they had rabies or they were being protective.

    Great Blog by the way…A lot of movies!
