THE WHITE REINDEER, a beautiful and haunting folk tale based on Lapland mythology, is OUT NOW on Dual Format and can be purchased here here.

Eureka Entertainment to release THE WHITE REINDEER, a beautiful and haunting folk tale based on Lapland mythology, for the very first time in the UK as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in a definitive Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 8 April 2019, presented from a new 4K restoration and available with a Limited Edition slipcase [2000 copies only].



The directorial debut of Finnish cinematographer Erik Blomberg, The White Reindeer is one of world cinema’s criminally under-seen masterpieces. A vampiric fairy-tale set amongst the starkly beautiful fells of Finnish Lapland, Blomberg combines an almost documentary filming style with avant-garde experimentation to produce a dreamy art-house horror film without compare.

A newly-married young woman, Pirita (Mirjami Kuosmanen), becomes frustrated and lonely as her husband, a reindeer herder for a small Arctic village, spends much of his time away from home in devotion to his work. Desperate for affection, she visits a shaman who offers a potion that makes her an irresistible object of desire, but there is a terrible cost. Pirita becomes a bloodthirsty shapeshifter who lures men out into the barren wilderness where she consumes them.

With its portrayals of gender inequality, societal pressures and sexual anxiety (represented through animal transformation, echoes of Jacques Tourneur’s Cat People…), The White Reindeer is a timeless classic that deserves to be rediscovered and recognised as a defining film in the horror and fantasy genres. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film from a new 4K restoration for the first time ever in the UK.
