Make sure to watch it while you can.

Even though Quentin Tarantino 's Kill Bill celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year, that doesn't mean the film franchise is getting special treatment from the platforms. Right now, one of the most popular and bloodiest of Tarantino's films is available for streaming on Netflix. But that is about to change.

So if you haven't seen Kill Bill yet, or if you're wondering how you can watch it today and what will happen after June 30th, here's everything you need to know.

What Kill Bill Is About?

Following Uma Thurman's deadly assassin, The Bride, the movie was originally planned as a single story, but later had to be split into two films because it was over four hours long. At the time, Tarantino didn't want to sacrifice any scenes, so Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 were released 6 months apart.

While there is a dramatic backstory to The Bride going on a killing spree and slaughtering people left, right and center, audiences were much more impressed by the concentrated violence and choreographed fight sequences that are rarely seen on screen in this quantity.

The first part of the film now stands at 85% on Rotten Tomatoes, with the second part slightly behind at 84%. Both films were also a commercial success, grossing $180 million and $152 million at the box office, respectively, against a total budget of $30 million.

All in all, Kill Bill remains one of Quentin Tarantino's most recognizable films, and a great alternative to all those slasher horrors that lack substance behind the characters' motives. The only problem is that these movies will soon be impossible to stream.

Where to Watch Kill Bill?

For now, both chapters of Quentin Tarantino's revenge action thriller are available to stream on Netflix. But that will soon change, as the movies will be removed to make room for more titles in the content rotation. On June 30, both installments will leave the platform, so be sure to stream them before they're gone.

There's no word yet on where Kill Bill will end up for streaming, so if you want to see the movie after July, you'll have to rent it, buy it, or go to Amazon Prime Video.
