Appearing regularly on YouTube, Scarecrow employees Emalie Soderback and Matt Lynch crack a beer and host Viva Physical Media, a chat show featuring radical VHS, DVD, and Blu-Ray recommendations. Each episode they also dive into one of their favorite underappreciated film genres: the cute/sloppy/silly/heart-warming dog movie. But not all dogs are good boys, so prepare yourself for one of the most terrifying woofs of all time: Cujo!
“Looking for a real slobbery horror flick with an absolutely unstoppable villain? Based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, Cujo stars horror icon Dee Wallace as a mother who is forced to take shelter with her young son in their Ford Pinto while an absolute beast of a rabid St. Bernard by the name of (duh) Cujo stops at nothing to use them as a chew toy. As someone who’s seen their fair share of dog movies—as well as a good chunk of dog horror movies—Cujo’s a classic for a reason. Keep repeating “It’s not a monster. It’s just a doggy.”
