OK. I remember reading a TV Guide article which stated they put a German Shepherd in a fat-suit for this film (certain shots, I'm assuming, not the whole thing --- that'd be like Nolan's bat-suit ((just dumb))) because St. Bernards can't be trained to be vicious enough. Yet, whenever I repeat this, um, "factoid," I get laughed at.
I'm counting on you TWITCH. Confirm or quash?
The photograph raises an interesting question. Since Darabont's version of King's The Mist was released in a black and white version, what other horror films would benefit from this treatment. Cujo relied mostly on location and performance; very little blood is seen that might require color. Although I really enjoyed the original, I think that a B&W treatment would be compelling.
