We’re approaching the peak season for binge-watchers scrolling through the endless supply of films and searching for the hidden gem. For each viewer, that hidden gem will be different. But among all the Netflix movies at our disposal, there are plenty of recent titles that missed the mainstream. Among June’s brimming list of hit movies, there are selections like Cop Car, a little known Kevin Bacon thriller from just a few years ago that will prove a worthy summer watch.

The film centers on a pair of mischievous boys, Travis (James Freedson-Jackson) and Harrison (Hays Wellford), as they happen upon a police car that has seemingly been abandoned by its owner. However, when the boys still the cop car, they realize that its owner has trapped a hostage in its trunk. Bacon plays the corrupt Sheriff Kretzer, a murderous cop whose power has taken a turn for the worse and becomes Travis and Harrison’s worst nightmare.

Cop Car comes from director Jon Watts, who also directed Spider-Man: Homecoming and its upcoming sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015 before getting a limited theatrical release by Focus later that year. Cop Car holds an impressive 80% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a high mark for a film that’s hasn’t been widely viewed. If you’re looking to start your summer with an out-of-the-box movie pick, be sure to add Cop Car to your watch list when it arrives on Netflix on June 16.
