Under the Tree (2017) Blu Ray & DVD (Eureka!)

Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson's dark Icelandic tale of relationship breakup and neighbourly disputes is blackly funny but ultimately rather nasty. It's a real emotional gut punch, with great performances by Steinþór Hróar Steinþórsson and Edda Björgvinsdóttir.

The Changeling (1980) dir: Peter Medak Blu Ray (Second Sight)

This underrated Canadian-made supernatural chiller makes great use of subtle scares, a labyrinthine mansion set and George C. Scott's commanding turn as a bereaved father. The wealth of extras here makes this an essential disc.
