Borgman is a 2013 Dutch film directed by Alex van Warmerdam. It was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

It is the story of a group of people, led by 'mysterious visitor' Camiel Borgman, who take over the house of a bourgeois family.

The 'evil/mysterious visitor' theme has previously been explored in Pasolini's Teorema (1968) and Fran├žois Ozon's Sitcom (1998).

The film features the evil visitor sitting like the mare of The Nightmare of Fuseli, sitting on the chest of Marina while she is sleeping.
