As June winds down, Netflix is jettisoning some of its current genre offerings to make room for the new crop. There’s plenty leaving, but you can binge the best before the end of the month.

Here are the six best sci-fi shows and movies leaving Netflix on June 30.

6. Jason X (2001)

There seems to be a rule that, given enough time, every declining horror franchise will eventually end up in space. Jason X shows why that’s both terrible and brilliant, with a slasher that’s as fun as it is nonsensical.

5. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

Despite taking place in roughly present-day planet Earth, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has a gritty cyberpunk feel and plenty of technobabble to make sci-fi fans feel at home.

4. Immortals (2011)

We’re not here to tell you Immortals is a great movie, but you could do worse for mindless entertainment. Thanks to great CGI, a commitment to style over substance, and a shirtless Henry Cavill, this Greek mythology-based romp is also a visual treat.

3. Twin Peaks (1990–1991)

Twin Peaks isn’t sci-fi, but it’s packed full of enough mystery, surreal logic, and overall spooky vibes to make it a favorite among fans of the genre.

2. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964)

The Twilight Zone is one of the most influential works of sci-fi of all time. Even if you’ve already marathoned every episode, it’s worth experiencing all their twists and turns again while they’re still on Netflix.

1. Back to the Future trilogy (1985–1990)

If you can’t catch everything that’s leaving Netflix this weekend, you’ll at least want to make time to watch the best time travel trilogy ever.
