All The Stuff Disappearing From Netflix In June (Including ‘Groundhog Day’)

June is arriving shortly, and along with the miserable rainy weather disappearing (hopefully), so too are some films and TV shows on Netflix streaming. Honestly, things are looking good: Not too many of these vanishing titles will make your heart ache. Private Parts is saying goodbye, so now might be a good time to hear Howard Stern say “Pig Vomit” on a loop, and the ridiculous (and ridiculously fun) Darkman is flying off into the night.

Here’s what you should be watching this month on Netflix before it disappears…

Groundhog Day (6/1)

Phil (Bill Murray) is having a bad day. In fact, he keeps having the same bad day over, and over again. By now, we all know and love Groundhog Day, the Murray vehicle when he was at the height of his powers. (Though it’s arguable that he’s still at the “height of his powers.”) Directed by Harold Ramis, Groundhog Day imagines Phil in an endless loop of time, where he has to right his daily wrongs in order to get out of it. Murray and Andie McDowell are delightful as the would-be couple at the center of the narrative, and some of the best moments occur when Phil tries to continually off himself.

The Faculty (6/1)

Directed by Robert Rodriguez, with a screenplay by Scream‘s Kevin Williamson, The Faculty is a criminally underrated teen-angsty horror film with an adult sense of humor. Some of the hottest young stars at the time — Elijah Wood, Clea DuVall, Jordana Brewster, Josh Hartnett — rill out the cast, and a performance from Jon Stewart provided a dash of malicious fun. If you were a fan of Scream, then you’d likely be a fan of The Faculty.

The Others (6/1)

Few directors are as adept at the slow burn drama as well as Alejandro Amenábar, the Chilean director responsible for Open Your Eyes (later remade into Vanilla Sky), and the Oscar-winning The Sea Inside. For his 2001 ghost story, The Others, he traps Nicole Kidman inside a home that may be experiencing some sort of paranormal activity. Working as both a haunting tale of love lost as well as a parental parable, The Others is a fantastic watch, especially if you stay around for the twist ending.
