A country is a big swatch of land. It is sometimes connected to other pieces of land, which are countries as well. Sometimes they may border a body of water - usually oceans. Coincidentally, almost all known countries can be found on the planet Earth. Several countries linked together make up a continent. But enough of the geography lesson, the most important thing to know is that nearly every country has made significant contributions to the horror genre in one way or another; in particular: England, Japan, Italy and the United States.
