Sources: I have used more than thirty websites and books specialized in movies and horror (including Rotten Tomatoes, Rolling Stones, Creepycatalog, WhatCulture, MUBI, Telerama, AlloCiné, AllHorror...) in order to pinpoint these movies. Moreover, I have used IMDb to sort French horror movies and I have chosen only those which have more than 2000 votes.
