Cujo (1983)

I definitely prefer the novel, but this adaptation is okay too. Cujo has rabies, Donna and her son Tad are trapped inside their car with Cujo outside terrorizing them. Although the film is only an hour and a half it feels like three claustrophobic hours trapped inside a car. Not much happens, but some suspenseful scenes save this from being a total waste of time. Disappointing, but at the same time I'm not sure what else they could have done with it.
