Today brings the news that a director has been named and production is moving ahead. The news comes via MovieWeb that Paranormal Activity 2 director Tod Williams has been tapped to direct the Stephen King / Adam Alleca penned script … Continue reading

Romero and Stephen King can be a great combination – take Creepshow for example, which works on so many levels as a satisfactory horror anthology with some very memorable stories.

Cujo-1983-movie-1

SYNOPSIS: A friendly St. Bernard named “Cujo” contracts rabies and conducts a reign of terror on a mother and her asthmatic son.
