3 – Man Bites Dog (C’est Arrivé Près de Chez Vous) Belvaux-Bonzel-Poelvoorde, Belgium, 1992)

A film crew follows the everyday life of an extrovert serial killer.

Even by today’s standards there is still some highly provocative moments in this independent satirical and gruesome film from Belgium. Shot in a documentary style before it was a la mode, it follows the adventures of a serial killer (amazing Benoit Poelvoorede) with a cynical tone and full of self indulgence. It’s definitely not to everyone’s taste as it crosses violently the boundaries of decency more than a few times.

A classic of modern horror and senseless provocation.
