Drafthouse Films will be releasing Alex van Warmerdam’s BORGMAN come June. We are always on the look out for alternative horror films and this one might just be it. It will have a limited release so keep your eyes open for it.
Synopsis: A dark suburban fable exploring the nature of evil in unexpected places, Borgman follows an enigmatic vagrant who enters the lives of an upper-class family and quickly unravels their carefully curated lifestyle. Charming and mysterious, Camiel Borgman seems almost otherworldly, and it isn't long before he has the wife, children and nanny under his spell in a calculated bid to take over their home life. However, his domestic assimilation takes a malevolent turn as his ultimate plan comes to bear, igniting a series of increasingly maddening and menacing events.
Borgman features Jan Bijvoet, Hadewych Minis, Jeroen Perceval, Sara Hjort Ditlevsen, Eva van de Wijdeven, Annet Malherbe, Tom Dewispelaere, and Alex van Warmerdam.
Borgman opens in select theaters on June 6th.
