June is on the horizon and that means Netflix has 60 new titles coming to their streaming service over the next four weeks.

Here's Netflix's sizzle reel for June.

Here are four titles that caught my eye.

Sweet Tooth

I've loved Jim Mickle's work since seeing "Stake Land" in 2010. He's consistently done quality genre work on limited budgets. I'm excited to see what he can do with Jeff Lemire's fantasy stories about a hybrid deer-boy who embarks on a dangerous journey across a post-apocalyptic America. (Avail 6/4/21)


Gina Rodriguez stars in t his sci-fi film about a future where humankind have lost the ability to sleep. There are echoes of José Saramago's "Blindness" and that's enough to have me interested. (Avail. 6/9/21)


When Netflix emails me their monthly updates, the first thing I do is look through the production photos. I'm literally searching for what looks interesting. "Katla" passed the eye test. So, I move on to the description from Netflix.

"In Iceland, after the subglacial volcano Katla has been erupting constantly for a whole year, Gríma is still looking for her missing sister who disappeared the day the eruption started. As her hope of ever finding her body is fading, the residents of the surrounding area start to have visits from unexpected guests. There might be something hidden under the glacier no one could ever have foreseen."

Icelandic sci-fi/horror about a volcano that has been continually erupting for a year; woman searching for missing sister; unexpected visitors; and something hidden no one could foreseen? Sounds good to me.

The Ice Road

Liam Neeson stars as a ice truck driver who risks everything by driving across thawing ice to save the lives of miners trapped in a collapsed Canadian diamond mine. I watched a few seasons of "Ice Road Truckers," I know how bonkers you'd have to be to drive a rig across melting waters. Plus Neeson.
