Cujo, a friendly St. Bernard, contracts rabies and conducts a reign of terror on a small American town.
The dogs featured in the film would often have their tails tied down to their legs because the dogs would be enjoying themselves so much that they would wag their tails during filming. This tactic was missed once in the editing where they show Cujo from behind ready to attack and his tail is wagging energetically.
Fuck you, dog.
When Cujo initially attacks the Pinto, the car's passenger window shatters completely, but does not break. The tempered glass in all automotive side and rear windows does not have the thin plastic layer in it that keeps it intact when struck (as windshields have), and this type of glass will shatter into tiny pieces and disintegrate on impact. This is demonstrated when Mrs. Trenton uses the butt of the sheriff's revolver to shatter the Pinto's glass rear hatch, which is made of the same type of glass.
The films title appears out of a pool of swirling blood.
Most DVD prints are missing a closeup shot of Donna's face as she climaxes during a sex scene with Steve. The scene was intact in video versions.
