Creepshow | The Dark
This 1983 adaptation of the Stephen King horror novel is the anti-Beethoven, the story of
a rabid St. Bernard that terrorizes a community, tears up a few folks, and goes after a
woman and her son. Once the point has been made that big, lovable Cujo has been bitten by
a rabid bat, there isn't much more to say. The film is essentially a linear progression of
doggy violence, though director Lewis Teague (The Jewel of the Nile)--building on King's
implication that we all know what it's like to be afraid of a big, scary pooch--succeeds
at making the fear almost primitive for an audience.
In a bizarre case of nature versus humanity, a Saint Bernard infected with
rabies by a diseased bat attacks a mother and her son. When the family becomes trapped in
their car, they must depend on their wits to defeat the crazed canine.
