Bad dog.

Driven bonkers by a bat bite, the St. Bernard in Stephen King’s rural thriller transforms from a happy-go-lucky lunk into a frothing ball of fury as rabies takes over.

The plot involves the slobbering psycho trapping a mother and her young son in their broken-down Pinto, as the blazing sun competes with the dog to see who can finish off the duo first.

Gene Siskel called it “one of the dumbest, flimsiest excuses for a movie I have ever seen,” while Roger Ebert thought it was “dreadful.”

Well, not the only time the thumbs-up, thumbs-down boys were wrong.
