Eureka Entertainment is set to release Cujo on Blu-ray for the first time ever in the UK in a Special Limited Two-Disc Edition as part of the Eureka Classics range from April 29th.

Evil bites when a monstrous canine terrorises a helpless family in this legendary cult classic. Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, Cujo gives horror a new name. While Donna (Dee Wallace, The Howling, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) and Vic Trenton struggle to save their rocky marriage, their son Tad befriends the loveable St. Bernard who belongs to their mechanic. But what they don’t realise is that a bat bite has transformed Cujo from a docile pup to a vicious killer. With Vic away on business, Donna and Tad’s car trouble pushes them into a living nightmare — trapped by the demonic, relentless dog from hell. This critically acclaimed thriller promises to have you glued to your seat and foaming at the mouth!
Making its UK debut on Blu-ray, the release also has over 7 hours of extra content on the special limited two-disc Blu-ray edition, reversible sleeve featuring artwork by Justin Osbourn and original poster artwork plus a limited edition 60-page collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by Lee Gambin, author Scott Harrison, and Craig Ian Mann and illustrated with archival imagery from the film’s production.
