There's one genre that I really like, but I never know how to phrase it. Sort of trapped in the woods or somewhere remote with killers on the loose. Make camping more fun.
Me too! In the film below, the killer in the woods is nature. It didn't seem to do well financially but, I thought it was a good movie (based on a true story) and the bear attack scene...well, it sort of made me look over my shoulder when camping or hiking in the woods for awhile after watching it.
Wikipedia quotes the critics consensus asand I would agree.
Tense, well-acted, and at once atmospheric as well as brutally impactful
The scenery is breathtaking and her struggle to survive believable, IMO.

"The tick" on Amazon Prime delivers ridiculously over the top comic book heroes and villains in comedic comic book action. Pretty much action/comedy with interesting characters.
"Rick and Morty" is an animated short that airs during Adult swim and is kind of a parody of the characters "Doc and Marty" (back to the future). Rick is Morty's alcoholic emotionally abusive mad super genius grandfather. They travel through different dimensions on all kinds of crazy adventures. Sci-fi adventure/comedy
"Ozark" with Jason Bateman on Netflix is great. A Chicago financial adviser who launders money for a cartel (Bateman) has to stay one step ahead in order to keep himself and his family alive. They end up moving to the Ozark in Missouri and run into a whole bunch of interesting/shady characters.
"Preacher" also based on a comic book follows a Texas preacher who has the gift of "the voice of God" and his merry band of misfits who include A centuries old friendly drug addict vampire and a femme fatale badass named Tulip. God is missing and they are out to find him.
"American gods" is a Surreal kind of story of a recently released ex con who lands himself in the employ of mysterious man who leads him into "the battle of the new gods and the old ones". Kinda supernatural occultish adventure.
That's just a few I'm watching at present. If those sound interesting I hope you enjoy.

Also, check out The Expanse!
That is a DEEP show... puts one in mind of the directing style of Kubrick, and the writing is, in my opinion, a new measure of excellence in sci-fi television.
