Van Warmerdam's Dark Fable BORGMAN Gets A Suitably Dark US Trailer

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Drafthouse Films are gearing up for a June release of Alex van Warmerdam's Cannes selected Borgman, a particular high point in a filmography filled with high points for the Dutch maverick.

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.
This one is a great favorite in these parts and sure to please those who prefer their tales dark and enigmatic. Check out the new US trailer below.
