This movie wasn't what i would call Horror. It was gross and disgusting. I never want to see it again. Every time i see that dog i just want to vomit !!!!

Horror. It has all the creepy elements plus that dog got really scary when the rabies hit full tilt.

Ever since my son was bit in the face by a dog, they SCARE the shit out of me! It happened to be MY dog of several years. I did beat the shit out him, splitting my hand open getting sevral stitches, but the cops ordered him asleep. It was a mix of german shepard and huskey. My son loves dogs so much I did as much research I could and came up with the perfect dog.

Miniature Schnauzer!

This is not a pic of my dog but very close.

i do just because i think this is a simple story. like when you think about it, a whole lot of people know what its like to get bit by a dog, even if the dog is a playful puppy, it still can hurt. so it's a movie where everyone can pretty much feel what the person is going through.

Yes I believe Cujo's a horror movie it's always in the horror section at the rental stores and where you can buy it..Course I was a little kid when I saw it for the first time, and I was terrified..But still I believe it to be a horror flick...Not to mention my dog on occicasion can be just as scary as CUJO even though he's smaller dog, he's a terrier and it hurts like a bitch when he bites, I've been bitten twice in the 3 and half years I owneed him,so that makes the movie scary to me...

I just figgured it was in the horror section because there is violence and blood in the movie. But was never sure since hes not a real monster, not a zombie.

Its a good movie, and even better book. Definitly a classic.

Good question. I don't know. The whole lable thing can get pretty hairy with some movies... is it horror or thriller, horror or action, sci-fi or horror or any cross breeding imaginable, LOL Maybe some criteria should be layed out?? It might be a horror movie if.....

When Old Yellar got rabies and tried to take a bite out of Arlis did you stop and say to yourself man this isn't a family show at all this is Horror,of course not so in my mind Cujo isnt either.The movie was okay but a dog different from that dumb ass St Bernard might have given this film a little more teeth
