Donna Trenton (Dee Wallace) and her six-year old son, Tad (Danny Pintauro) are en route to an auto mechanic on the outskirts of town when their car breaks down.  Unfortunately the mechanic is on vacation, although his rabid dog, Cujo is on the loose and terrorizing passersby.

The Trentons are unlucky enough to encounter Cujo, who keeps the family locked inside their sweltering hot vehicle without water or food.  In an era before cell phones, Donna is incapable of calling for help, and her husband, Vic (Daniel Hugh Kelly)is away on business.  Which will kill them first:Cujo, the heat, or starvation?

Cujo was a box office success, nearly tripling its $8 million budget.
