From 1974 to 1982 Stephen King published 12 books, most of them bestsellers. Yet only three movies were based on his writing during that same period: Carrie in 1976, The Shining in 1980, and Creepshow in 1982. That all changed starting in 1983. In the next four years a total of thirteen movies based on King's works hit screens. The first movie in that deluge was Cujo, based on King's 1980 book about a mother and son trapped by a rabid dog. Does Cujo keep to the quality of the Kubrick, De Palma, and Romero films that came before? Listen to find out!
