  • From Stephen King's novel comes a chilling tale of a quiet New England town and a horrible evil in the dead of Summer
Movie Quote(s):
  • [after Donna breaks off their affair, Steve vindictively dashes off a note to Donna's husband] Steve Kemp: What's the mole just above her pubic hair look like to you? To me it looks like a question mark.
  • Vic Trenton: There are no real monsters. Tad Trenton: Except for the one in my closet.
  • Donna Trenton: Fuck you, dog.
  • Professor: Nope. Nothing wrong here.
  • [Joe Camber has encountered Cujo in the garage. Cujo glares at him menacingly & growls] Joe Camber: Cujo? [the dog snarls again, and approaches him menacingly] Joe Camber: Oh my God... you're rabid! [Cujo barks savagely and charges at Joe. He puts his arms up to defend himself as Cujo attacks] Joe Camber: [yelling] NO! NO! CUJO! [the dog jumps on him & knocks him down]
Movie Trivia:
  • To make the St. Bernards attack the car, animal trainers put the dog's favorite toys inside the car so the dogs would try to get them.
  • Five St. Bernards were used, one mechanical head, and a guy in a dog costume.
  • "Cujo" is an ancient Indian word meaning "unstoppable force."
  • Stephen King contributed substantially to the script but eventually declined Writer's Guild credit
  • Stunt double Jeannie Coulter was in the car and had the one of the toys used by the dogs' trainers as a "lure". The window was partially down, the dog jumped up and put his paws on the window, forcing it down and he reached in for his toy. Jeannie's reaction was to lower the toy and the dog bit her nose. She was treated at the hospital and released. There was also the rumor at the time that she was bitten by a rabid dog which was entirely incorrect.
