In 1983 director Lewis Teague released his big screen adaptation of then hot shot horror novelist Stephen King’s rabid dog tale Cujo. Starring Dee Wallace, Daniel Hugh Kelly and Danny Pintauro, the film has gone on to become somewhat of a cult horror classic from the glorious 80s horror genre.
Celebrated Australian cinema historian and author Lee Gambin (We Can Be Who We Are: Movie Musicals from the 1970s, Massacred by Mother Nature: Exploring the Natural Horror Film) has exhaustively researched the making of the film, delving through hundreds of hours of footage, interviews, outtakes, archives and behind the scenes content to deliver the ultimate insight into Cujo.
Entitled Nope, Nothing Wrong Here: The Making of Cujo, Gambin describes the book as:
both an academic text and exhaustive making-of book with over 30 interviews with cast and crew and over 200 pics… it is the definitive account of the film
production history, rare never before seen pics, etc
Expected to hit shelves this winter, Gambin’s book will be the must have item for genre fans and also a bird’s eye account into the film making process in the golden age of 80s cinema.
We’ll keep you posted and bail up Gambin for a bit more goss on the book in the coming months!
