This 1983 adaptation of the Stephen King horror novel is the anti-Beethoven, the story of a rabid St. Bernard that terrorizes a community, tears up a few folks, and goes after a woman and her son. Once the point has been made that big, lovable Cujo has been bitten by a rabid bat, there isn't much more to say. The film is essentially a linear progression of doggy violence, though director Lewis Teague (The Jewel of the Nile)--building on King's implication that we all know what it's like to be afraid of a big, scary pooch--succeeds at making the fear almost primitive for an audience. --Tom Keogh

Durante toda su vida Cujo fue un buen perro, un San Bernardo grandote, pacífico, juguetón y amante de los niños. Realmente se trataba de un perro bueno y feliz. Feliz hasta que le sucedió algo, y el cerebro de perro de Cujo se cubrió de una de esas oscuridades que se alimentan de sangre. Ahora, se ha convertido en un perro asesino; doblemente cruel por cuanto la gente no conoce su mutación y aún le ve en su anterior bondad. Heraldo de un pequeño Apocalipsis, Cujo desencadenará sobre un pueblo modélico un huracán de pánico y de muerte.
Uno de los grandes clásicos de Stephen King, el gran maestro actual de la literatura de terror.
