Evil bites when a monstrous canine terrorizes a helpless family in this legendary cult classic. Based on suspense master Stephen King’s best-selling novel, Cujo gives horror a new name. While Donna and Vic Trenton (Dee Wallace, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Daniel Hugh-Kelly, Someone to Watch Over Me) struggle to save their rocky marriage, their son Tad (Danny Pintauro, TV’s Who’s The Boss?) befriends the loveable 200-lb St. Bernard who belongs to their mechanic. But what they don’t realize is that a bat bite has transformed Cujo from a docile pup to a vicious killer. With Vic away on business, Donna and Tad’s car trouble pushes them into a living nightmare — trapped by the demonic, relentless dog from hell. This critically acclaimed thriller promises to have you glued to your seat and foaming at the mouth.
