Man Bites Dog again?

11.28.2003

This little gem of movie news comes as a bit... nay... a huge surprise (if it's true). According to an anonymous scooper, who sent the tidbit in to both Bloody Disgusting and Creature-Corner, a prequel to the brilliantly dark 1992 Belgian film, MAN BITES DOG, is currently in the works. The original, which was done completely in black & white, took us on a hilariously dark and disturbingly violent journey as a film crew follows a serial killer/thief around as he exercises his craft. He expounds on art, music, nature, society, and life as he offs mailmen, pensioners, and random people. Slowly he begins involving the camera crew in his activities, and they begin wondering if what they're doing is such a good idea, particularly when the killer takes out a rival and the rival's brother sends a threatening letter. It's a hard film to track down (here in North America, anyway), but if you can get your hands on a copy, I highly recommend it. Details about the prequel are slim, but the source claims that the title of the film is MAN BITES DOG II: THE BEGINNING (bugh!) and it takes place a few days before Benoit, the serial killer in question, begins being filmed. I'm not too sure about the validity of the source, or the need for a prequel for that matter, but if nothing else, it could help to boost the profile of the original, which is definitely a good thing.
