'Cujo' is a pretty good intense film! King's story about a family pet that goes crazy after being bitten by a bat is great when the dog is on screen, but when the thread bare story drifts into TV movie melodrama, it looses steam and credibility.
I am still a fan of the film because the second half of the film is so strong and the pacing of the animal slowly deteriorating into an uncontrollable killer seems very real, although I could have done without the last attack by the dog in Camber's house. It turned an otherwise believable story into the typical Hollywood ending, always trying to get one more good jolt out of a scene 9/10
