NEW RELEASE UPDATE: Borgman From Drafthouse Films on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD September 9th

Borgman from Drafthouse Films sounds friggin' crazy. Drafthouse Films puts out some wacky shit, and this one seems to continue the trend. This one comes out September 9th. I'm not sure that I would qualify Borgman as a standard issue horror picture, but the trailer is filled with some unsettling imagery, that looks artistically pretty and moderately eerie.

Full release from Drafthouse Films below.

Borgman is 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.
