The Dog from Cujo
Combine Stephen King, Hollywood and an insane rabid dog and what do you get? You get the number three bad-ass animal on our list. Cujo came out in 1981 and still holds up fairly well depending who you ask. Keep in mind, the internet hates everything. As a dog lover, it’s depressing to witness a lumbering St. Bernard devolve into a raving monster. Just goes to show that chasing rabbits and getting your head caught in a bat cave never leads to anything good. Just ask Frankie the Maintenance Guy.
The Lions from The Ghost and the Darkness
The Ghost and the Darkness is a 1996 horror film that starred Val Kilmer and Michael Douglas. Although it received very mixed reviews, we dig this flick and feel it’s entertaining as hell and quite underrated. Loosely based on a true story from 1898, the movie was about two malevolent lions that slaughtered workers in Tsavo, Kenya during the construction of the African Uganda-Mombasa Railway. The lions in this movie were so unbelievably bad-ass they came close to unseating our number one entry. The body count alone from these two hell beasts was shocking. The film claimed the lions killed 135 people; however research from 2009 stated the real lions likely ate 35 people. Hollywood loves to exaggerate and clearly 35 deaths were considered far too pussy an amount to make a movie about.
The Shark from Jaws
Why bother denying it? The moment you saw this article you knew the iconic shark from the 1975 Spielberg classic Jaws would be number one on our list. Based on a 1974 novel by Peter Benchley, Jaws told the story of an enormous great white that terrorized a small resort town, and the eventual epic battle of three men with balls enough to confront it. There’s literally nothing we can say about this popular movie animal that hasn’t been said by others before. This shark will remain the man-eating standard by which all other bad-ass movie animals are judged.
