Benoit Poelvoorde's film swings from the hysterical to the horrific and caused a storm when it was released in the cinema because of its disturbing violence. Multiple killer Ben Patard shows off his skills to documentary maker Remy Belvaux and his team. The filmmakers gradually fall under Ben's spell and become entirely caught up in the brutal facts of his life, changing from voyeurs to accomplices.

Made by three Belgian film students, outrageous black comedy Man Bites Dog was the prize winning sensation at the 1992 Cannes Film Festival and has achieved cult status.
Man Bites Dog is a spoof documentary about an amiable but seriously warped mass murderer, who kills all types of people, but has a particular fondness for postmen. The movie charts the increasingly close relationship between the killer and a film crew making a documentary about his exploits, who get implicated in his horrendous deeds.
