    Borgman
    Wednesday November 26, 7:00p–8:53p
    Presented by Fundy Film Society
    ▶ Show Details

    Cost: $9

    This is a dark suburban fable, exploring the nature of evil in unexpected places, by Dutch director/writer Alex van Warmerdam. An enigmatic vagrant, Borgman, enters an upper-class family’s home, quickly unraveling their lives. Things take a malevolent turn as his ultimate plan comes to bear, igniting a series of increasingly maddening and menacing events. The film’s unpredictability may confound as many viewers as it enthralls, but either way, it is a refreshingly original experiment in off-kilter terror.
