Exclusive, Nightmarish Stills From Director Alex van Warmerdam’s Creepy-Looking ‘Borgman’

Exclusive, Nightmarish Stills From Director Alex van Warmerdam's Creepy-Looking 'Borgman'

While trailers can give us brief flashes of a film’s atmosphere, sometimes a longer glance at a photo provides even more. That is especially the case when the film looks as disturbing as Alex van Warmerdam’s  “Borgman,” which stars Jan Bijvoet as a creepy drifter. 

From the film’s 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.
