Frightening Movie Animals: Dogs
Everybody loves dogs. Cujo changed that. For the record, St. Bernards are lovable, friendly, shaggy dogs. Weighing in at upwards of 200 pounds, they are, however, very large. Perhaps this is where author Stephen King came up with the idea for his 1981 novel, Cujo. Now synonymous with vicious dogs the world over, Cujo’s horrifying tale is one audiences have yet to forget. Bit by a rabid bat, Cujo soon succumbs to rabies, and proceeds on a murderous rampage, even turning against his owners. It’s every dog owner’s worst nightmare: their loyal pup turning violent and uncontrollable, and it’s made all the more frightening by the fact that Cujo’s affliction is a real virus that kills an estimated 55,000 people annually.
