"Borgman," directed by Alex van Warmerdam, has been selected as the Netherlands' official entry for the Foreign-Language Oscar race. Drafthouse Films acquired the rights to the domestic thriller out of Cannes, and is planning a 2014 stateside release.

Here's the official synopsis:

"Borgman" is an allegorical tale exploring the nature of evil in unexpected places. A vagrant enters the lives of an upper-class family, igniting a descent from darkly comic dream to maddening psychological nightmare. “I wanted to show evil through the abnormal behaviour of normal people,” says Warmerdam at the film’s Cannes press conference, “the kind that you can come across in the street.”

The five nominations will be announced January 16, with the Oscars taking place on March 2, 2014.
