Paris is the capital city of France and part of the European Union. It is one of the most famous cities in the world, visited by millions of tourists every year.

In fiction[edit | edit source]

Paris has played a provincial part in the evolution of the horror film genre and was the principal setting for one of the most important movies of the silent film era, Phantom of the Opera, which starred the "Man of 1,000 Faces", Lon Chaney. Phantom have been re-imagined many times over the years, and with few exceptions, they are almost always set in France. Paris 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.

Paris was seen at the end of the film 28 Weeks Later being plagued by ravenous humans infected with "rage" syndrome. As the infected rampage through the streets, the Eiffel Tower can be seen in the background. This indicates that the efforts of the characters from the film to contain the outbreak in England failed.

Paris plays a minimal, yet crucial role in the origin of vampire-turned-detective Nick Knight from the Forever Knight television series. In the year 1228, Nicholas de Brabant was turned into a vampire by Lucien LaCroix. (FK: Dark Knight)
