Cujo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Cujo stalks onto Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Considering the film's age and budget, it looks quite good here thanks to a print that's been more than sufficiently cleaned up, leaving only a few intermittent white specks. Cujo has never been the sharpest film—portions look like they were shot with some sort of diffusion filter— but it definitely benefits from the upgrade to high definition. Overall clarity is greatly improved; you'll be able to make out the finest beads of glycerin sweat on Dee Wallace's upper lip, and you'll probably gag a little when confronted with the slobbery, shiny globs of mucous that daub Cujo's snout and seep from his big dolorous eyes. Longer shots have a tendency to go a little soft— never distractingly so—but close-ups display plenty of texture and fine detail. Color saturation is also strong throughout, and the combination of bold primaries, adequately deep black levels, and well-balanced contrast gives the image some unexpected depth. The film's grain structure hasn't been tampered with—I don't see any evidence of DNR or edge enhancement—and noise levels only spike during some of the darker scenes. You will notice a distinct drop in picture quality during the "spinning" shot inside the car—a fuzzier look, with heavy grain—but this is because cinematographer Jan De Bont used a periscopic lens that inadvertently softened the image. Overall, I was pleased with this transfer, and this is certainly the best that Cujo has looked since its release.


Cujo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

I can't really say that Cujo's soundtrack growls, and you'd be barking up the wrong tree if you expect an immersive soundstage, but I'll stop with the puns and get to the audio analysis. For this release, the film's original monaural presentation has been expanded into a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that does its best with the dated source material. The boxy sound effects definitely show their age—especially Cujo's snarls and barks—but the audio here is about as good as could be expected. Dialogue is mostly clear—I'd even say that Danny Pintauro's screams are too piercing—and the voices are balanced nicely in the mix, requiring no mid-film volume adjustments. The surround channels are mostly used to accommodate Charles Bernstein's score, which is surprisingly full, even if it does get repetitive at times. You'll hear a car pass through the rear speakers, a radio humming in the distance, and a lone dog howling somewhere behind you, but that's about it in terms of ambience. There's not much to get excited about, but the expansion into a lossless 5.1 track certainly does the film's audio a few favors. For those who want to compare, the disc also includes a monaural Dolby Digital version of the film's original audio track.
