    King could get away with endings where the monster wins in short stories, because you weren't invested in the characters.

I actually demand that every horror story I read end unhappily. It isn't horror otherwise, to me. I want the monster to win, or, at least, to survive and still be dangerous. This is why I favor HP Lovecraft.

But of course American movies almost never end unhappily, regardless of genre.

    I have seen Monster Dog, I don't remember that much about it, but I do know that Alice Cooper's voice was dubbed by someone else and it made his character weird to watch.

It would have irritated me to learn they'd dubbed Alice Cooper's voice. I wonder why they did it. I guess there was something wrong with his acting.
