As the summer approaches, it’s time to dig in on some horror flicks and Netflix has a host of new movies, and series, that are slated to arrive in June.
Here is the lineup:
The Boy: A young American named Greta (Lauren Cohan) takes a job as a nanny for an 8-year-old boy in a remote English village. To her surprise, Greta learns that the child of her new employers is a life-size doll. They care for the doll as if it was human, which helps the couple to cope with the death of their own son 20 years earlier. When Greta violates a list of strict rules, a series of disturbing and inexplicable events bring her worst fears to life, leading her to believe that the doll is alive.

When a student there is found dead after a party, unraveling secrets threaten to shatter the pact that has protected the boys’ families for centuries.
