Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is located in Southern Ontario on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. In horror fiction, Toronto played a large role on two different television programs. The first was the 1990s series Forever Knight, in which it served as the primary setting of the show and was the base of operations for vampire detective Nick Knight. The second show was the 2014 werewolf program Bitten. Although it was not the main setting for the series, Toronto was the temporary home for the main character, Elena Michaels, as well as her boyfriend Philip McAdams and his sister, Diane.

Points of Interest[edit | edit source]

CN Tower
The CN Tower is the single most recongizable landmark of the downtown Toronto skyline. It is a communications and observation tower standing at 1,815.4 feet tall. It was constructed by the Canadian National railway company and was built between 1972 and 1976. The CN Tower is seen during the opening title credits of the 1992-1996 Canadian/US television series Forever Knight.
Royal Ontario Museum
The Royal Ontario Museum is a natural history museum located in downtown Toronto facing Bloor Street. Also known as the ROM, it opened in 1912 and has a collection of more than 6,000,000 pieces and a visitor population averaging 1,000,000 people each year. One of it's more notable pieces was a Mayan jade cup that was excavated at Altun Kinal in Mexico. It was one of two such known pieces and believed to have been used in ritual that could cure vampirism. In 1992, vampire Lucien LaCroix came to Toronto, broke into the museum, killed a security guard and stole the cup. Investigating the murder was his own vampire progeny, Nick Knight. Nick consulted with archaeologist Doctor Alyce Hunter and his investigation reunited him with his old master. [1]
Thornhill Square Shopping Center
The Thornhill Square Shopping Center was located at 300 John Street in Thornhill, Toronto until it was partially demolished to make way for office complexes. The mall is significant in that it was used as the primary setting for the fictional Wisconsin-based Crossroads Mall as seen in the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead. Most of the set pieces and store fronts seen in the movie however are unique to the film and were not part of the original shopping center. Although the actual Thornhill mall was partially razed, it was not in fact the site of a zombie infestation as the movie suggests. [2][3]
