If you had your ear to the ground on the festival circuit last year, one movie that earned some solid buzz was Alex van Warmerdam's "Borgman." After premiering in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival, the film picked up awards around the world at fests in Athens, Haifa, Sitges and more, not to mention numerous nominations. And now the darkly twisted tale is coming to cinemas stateside.

If you had your ear to the ground on the festival circuit last year, one movie that earned some solid buzz was Alex van Warmerdam's "Borgman." After premiering in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival, the film picked up awards around the world at fests in Athens, Haifa, Sitges and more, not to mention numerous nominations. Now, the darkly twisted tale is coming to cinemas stateside.

Starring Jan Bijvoet, Hadewych Minis, Jeroen Perceval, Sara Hjort Ditlevsen, Eva van de Wijdeven, Annet Malherbe, Tom Dewispelaere and the director himself, the unique premise follows a vagrant who moves into the home of an upper class family and starts to take over their lives, with his more sinister motivations laying beneath the surface. A film that our own Jessica Kiang called "caustic, surreal, creepy, and blackly funny," you can see more of her praise on the exclusive, illustrated poster for the film below, designed by Seek And Speak.

"Borgman" opens in limited release on June 6th.
