Flag of France

France is a country in Europe and part of the European Union. It's capital city is Paris, one of the most famous cities in the world, visited by millions of tourists every year. France has played a provincial part in the evolution of the horror film genre and was the principal setting for two of the most important movies of the silent film era; The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Phantom of the Opera, both of which starred the "Man of 1,000 Faces", Lon Chaney. The Hunchback and the Phantom have been re-imagined many times over the years, and with few exceptions, they are almost always set in France. The 1985 film The Bride was shot almost entirely in the French countryside and the cities of Ain, Aude, Carcassonne and Dordogne. France is also the birht place of vampire exploitation director Jean Rollin. Almost of Rollin's films from the 1970s take place in France. France was also the setting of the 1997 horror/comedy An American Werewolf in Paris, itself a sequel to 1981's werewolf revisionist film An American Werewolf in London.
