I’m beginning to think there’s nothing Tim League can’t do. Having started the magnificent Alamo Drafthouse chain of cinemas, then going on to conceive Mondo gallery, Badass Digest and Drafthouse Films he has become a titan of the independent spirit residing in the body of a global mega-man!
The latest Drafthouse Films release is Borgman, a dark, bleak piece of cinema hailing from the Netherlands that wowed audiences at Cannes and will hopefully soon be gracing screens big and small around the world.
Here’s the official 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.
And for your viewing pleasure, here’s the official trailer. Prepare to be creeped out!
