In recent years, BearManor, the company who published this, has produced a long list of fabulous, well-researched works, one right after the other. This past year has seen the releases of such magnificent books as Gambin's CUJO book, Chuck Harter's MR.NOVAK: AN ACCLAIMED TELEVISION SERIES, and Stephen Spignesi's fun and insightful 635 THINGS I LEARNED FROM THE SOPRANOS, which, for the life of me, I cannot understand why is only available as a Kindle book.
This book is a must-have for anyone who loves cinema and books about cinema. If you don't love CUJO, even if you don't particularly LIKE the movie, this book is still splendid in every way. So good. I'm only giving this book a five-star review because it wasn't possible to give it more.
The author takes us through the film scene by scene, examining the action and the wider cultural references around it, interspersed with interviews. The comprehensive nature of the book covers the soundtrack, the cinematography, and no stone is left unturned.
Besides the author’s examination of the film and discussion of the making there are some great images. Some of the gems include pages from Stephen King’s original screenplay draft, deleted scene stills, lobby cards, sheet music, and lots of behind the scene photographs. There are interviews with much of the team behind the movie. Gambin talks to director Lewis Teague, composer Charles Bernstein, makeup artists, and camera assistants. There are also extensive interviews with the cast including Dee Wallace, Danny Pintauro, and Daniel Hugh Kelly. The interviews all throughout the book provide fascinating insight into the film, the characters, and what they were trying to do with the film. I especially enjoyed hearing about directions that the plot was going to go in but didn’t for the final production. The part I was most looking forward to was the discussion of the pivotal siege scene where Cujo stalks a mother and son trapped in their broken down car.
At over 500 pages, you may be worried that such in-depth examination of one single movie might be boring. It didn’t launch a franchise, and there is no wider world built around it. However, that is absolutely not the case. It’s a fascinating read. You really get to know all the actors and crew. If behind the scenes books interest you, or if you have any fondness for Cujo, then you will love this book.
Must read for Cujo fans, King fans, horror movie fans and just anyone who loves cinema.
If you have a dog living with you then you can also read it to them!
