Brett Camber is a young boy whose only companion is a Saint-Bernard named "Cujo", who in turn is bitten by a rabid bat. Whilst Vic, Donna's husband is away on business, and thinking over his marital troubles, Donna and her 5-year-old son Tad take her Pinto to Brett Cambers' dad's car shop... the car fails, and "Cujo" is very, very sick...

a good adaptation. a classic horror. a not comfortable hypotheses. short, a decent film. because it is more profound and superficial than you expect. superficial because the past of Cujo before the evil is only a sketch. sure, the fight for survive of woman and her son is important but it represents only the top of the iceberg. profound because the lead theme is not exactly a rabid Saint Bernard but family crisis. this is the axis and the attack of dog - only the element who gives clear perception about it. not the scenes of attacks are powerful but the idea itself of a giant animal, peaceful, lovely, nice, the perfect buddy for children, defined by the image of the funny Beethoven for many members of new generation and a cruel monster covered by blood . so, a decent film.
