Today, Cujo. While dogs may be considered Man’s Best Friend, they have also been the subject of horror and thriller films that depict what happens when dogs turn on us. Some of the more notable films of this ilk include The Pack (1977), Zoltan… Hound of Dracula (1978), Man’s Best Friend (1993) and Samuel Fuller’s controversial drama – and cinematic commentary on the nature of racism – White Dog (1982). However, the most iconic example of Man’s Best Friend gone awry may just be Stephen King’s Cujo, first chilling the blood of readers before getting a film adaptation. Originally released theatrically by Warner Bros., Kino has licensed the film from Paramount – the current rights holder – for its UHD Blu-ray debut.

Thank you for your fine review. I have this Kino 4K/UHD release in my disc collection. However, to my surprise the iTunes HD digital I purchased almost six years ago for $4.99 recently upgraded to 4K/ Dolby Vision. Thanks to Paramount.

I have not seen this film since its theatrical release, but would love to revisit it. Very fine film. Although the ending varies drastically from the book (I'm giving no details, to avoid spoilers) it absolutely works for telling this story as a movie.
