The White Reindeer (1952) Blu Ray & DVD (Eureka!)

This rare foray into Finnish folk-horror - heavily involving the combined talents of husband and wife team Erik Blomberg and Mirjami Kuosmanen - is a truly haunting affair. At times, the visual storytelling feels like it could have come from the silent era.

Blood Hunger: The Films of José Larraz Blu Ray (Arrow)

Amongst this three-film boxed set, Vampyres is the best: an underrated, low-budget horror gem with its own distinctive take on the vampire mythos. The other two films are less satisfying and feel more like bonus features for the bloodsucking main event.
