BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Nothing like a bit of Stephen King on a Sunday night, especially when you throw in a lovely cute dog into the mix too... oh wait, it has rabies... It's Old Yella all over again!! "Cujo, a friendly St. Bernard, contracts rabies and conducts a reign of terror on a small American town." Yes, I watched Cujo, and I can't say I was blown away...
Until right at the end, it was an okay film, I wasn't hating it, but I wasn't loving it. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being hated it and 10 being loved it, probably about a 3.5... if that helps at all. I have to say, I love Stephen King, but I never had high hopes when I watch his films, the ones I have seen, none I have loved - expect the new IT. Each movie of his I seem to go away thinking it had more potential, and I guess this one I felt that way too. I haven't read the book, so I wasn't going off that, but I did find Cujo could have done with just more, it was just kind of slow in parts and I love gore, so I would always love more of that. (I am not knocking it because I want gore though, that's just my personal preference...).
I could be a little biased over the fact that Cujo is very cute and fluffy and adorable though - but he does look pretty sorry for himself most of the time. Poor thing is covered in muck and what looks like mustard and probably just wants a cuddle but everyone pretends to be scared.
I did like that the film is full of drama though, affairs and all sorts, it's like some semi soap opera but with a cute killer dog. See, can't help but call him cute, even when he's killing people.
Cujo is a film that is mostly kind of slow, but does have fast paced parts - nothing to really get your heart going, but I can think of worse. Again, the dog is also very cuddle worthy. And I heard they might be doing a semi remake of it, which I think would be great, it's a great concept but just needs more.
Cujo isn't the worse film I've seen, but let's just say that I really hated the ending. Like really hated it. I wound it back to see if I had missed anything because I literally said "IS THAT IT?!", nope, that was it. Should have stuck to the book ending, all I am saying... take note for a remake - use a better ending. Thank you for coming to my talk.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
