A year after debuting in competition at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Drafthouse Films has released the trailer for Alex van Warmerdam's "Borgman" ahead of its June 6th release. Get ready to be creeped out.

The film centers on the sinister stranger of the title who inserts himself into the lives of a bored housewife and her family. Borgman slowly introduces chaos into the family's life, calling up his equally menacing friends in the service of a hazy agenda.

In his positive review out of Cannes, Eric Kohn wrote: "While easily comparable to Michael Haneke's 'Funny Games,' the characters in that movie were more blatantly psychopathic, while the motives of Borgman and his crew are difficult to discern until the very end. That makes its narrative progression less of a knockout than a tantalizing curiosity, but certainly heavy enough with themes worthy of analysis."

Watch the fear inducing trailer below:
