Join us for the Dark Comedy BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE (2000) co-written and directed by Bong Joon Ho.

Synopsis: A man who has decided dogs are not his best friend takes matters into his own hands in this dark comedy from South Korea. A college professor (Lee Sung-jae), who with his wife is awaiting the birth of their baby, is being led to the end of his tether by the constant barking of a dog somewhere in the apartment complex they call home. In a fit of rage, he snaps and kills the dog in a nearby flat -- only to discover another dog is still barking somewhere in the building. Soon, one dog after another is disappearing, and the angry teacher is having to come up with new and creative ways to hide his grisly pastime. Meanwhile, the manager of the apartment building (Bae Doo-na) keeps getting more and more complaints about pets who've gone missing, and becomes increasingly determined to find the culprit.
