It’s not Cujo’s fault he wants to kill people. He’s just come down with a case of rabies, and that tends to make dogs a little aggressive. Based on the 1981 Stephen King novel, this 1983 film starring Dee Wallace features an extended show off between the rabid St. Bernard (who’s not going to be saving any skiers this time around) and a mother who will do anything to protect her son. Since the release of the book and film, any overly aggro dog is typically referred to as Cujo.
