CUJO
1983, Paramount, 93 min, USA, Dir: Lewis Teague

When a young boy’s Saint Bernard contracts rabies, the once-friendly animal becomes a creature of hellish ferocity and lethal terror in a rural American town. Watch Beethoven go for blood in this frightfully entertaining adaptation of the Stephen King novel.


BLACK RAIN
1989, Paramount, 126 min, USA, Dir: Ridley Scott

Tough NYC cop Michael Douglas inadvertently loses extradited hood Yusaku Matsuda upon arrival in Japan, then plummets head-first down the neon rabbit hole into a nightmarish yakuza underworld. Violent, gut-wrenching pyrotechnics abound, depicted in the diamond-hard brilliance of Jan de Bont’s cinematography and top-notch performances from an excellent cast that includes Ken Takakura, Andy Garcia, Kate Capshaw and Tomisaburo Wakayama.
