Bat bites dog. Dog becomes rabid. Dog kills people. There's no more sophistication to it - other than people saying and doing amazingly stupid things under (okay, I agree) stressful circumstances, and a director/screenwriter who intentionally try to annoy the viewer (thinking that's scary). Because it's an 80s movie that probably just didn't age too well, and because it's adapted from a Stephen King novel (which should be much more thoughtful), I tried hard to give this the benefit of a doubt. I failed.
