Product Overview

Monstrous canine evil stalks a helpless, isolated family in rural Maine. Vic and Donna Trenton (Daniel Hugh-Kelly and Dee Wallace) struggle to repair their crumbling marriage, while their young son Tad (Danny Pintauro) befriends a hulking, lovable, 200-pound St. Bernard named Cujo. With Vic away on business, Donna and Tad take their decrepit car to be fixed at the remote farm of their mechanic (Ed Lauter). As their aging Pinto sputters to a stop and dies, Cujo appears. But the once docile dog has undergone a hideous transformation - and becomes a slavering, demonic, implacable killer possessed by almost supernatural strength...and unholy cunning. Critically acclaimed, Cujo is a fearsome, spine-chilling tour de force from the most popular name in horror!

Review Although well-made, this screen adaptation of Stephen King's Cujo emerges as a dull, uneventful entry in the horror genre. Novel about a mad dog on the rampage occupies a low place in the King canon, which is understandable if the film's stupefying predictability is an accurate reflection of the book...Opening sequence has a lovable looking St. Bernard bitten on the nose by a bat, whereupon audience is introduced to the Trentons, a family of young parents and a son which is disintegrating, mostly thanks to Dee Wallace's sideline affair with a local worker. Story basically marks time until, at least halfway through, the dog begins attacking Maine seacoast locals (pic was shot in Northern California)...Except for the appealing kid played by Danny Pintauro, the characters are of little interest.

Review Teague's best movie, Cujo, is a nearly perfect exercise in suspense on a par with Spielberg's Duel or the original The Hitcher. Based on Stephen King's novel, it tells the story of a married couple going through a difficult period when the wife (brilliantly played here by Dee Wallace) and her young son get stranded in their car in a remote area...It's a simple, effective story that Teague milks for all it's worth; working with acclaimed cinematographer Jan De Bont, he manages to make what could have been a static situation--a boy and his mom stuck in a car--extremely dynamic. Teague rarely repeats angles or compositions, and his constant reframing creates a palpable sense of menace; we're never sure where Cujo is lurking, and whenever he appears Teague times the reveal perfectly...The director provides an incisive commentary track on this special edition DVD, in which he enthusiastically praises his collaborators and gives a useful description of his general directorial approach as well as the specific challenges of Cujo...Twenty-five years after its release, Cujo holds up surprisingly well, and this DVD is a fitting tribute to its strengths.
