One of the more under-rated Stephen King adaptations is director Lewis Teague’s 1983 film of Cujo.

Dealing with themes of marital breakup and of course, a rabid St. Bernard, it's one of the darker screen takes on King's work.

Dee Wallace plays the mother who must protect her son from the jaws of the titular bloodthirsty pooch.

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!
