Just like Romeo Must Die was much more likely to take place in Oakland than in Vancouver.
I think I saw a still from that one. Fighting on a rooftop with the Northshore Mountains in the background

I really liked the horror movie "It Follows" which takes place and was filmed in Detroit. The film mainly takes place in poorer/middle class suburbs and residential parts of the city. Camera work is fantastic! Great movie if you're a horror fan, very original.

Upstate New York is extremely beautiful but never features in Hollywood locales at all.

Someday, the rest of the world will discover the Finger Lakes... until then, they are a secret

Shhhhh! Don't let out our secret!!!

That being said, "The Quiet Place" was filmed in the Hudson Valley region of Upstate NY. Filming locations included Beacon, Pawling and further north in Little Falls. And it looks like "The Quiet Place 2" is going to be filmed in Western NY, Olcott and Akron.

I give you Canadian Bacon. A gem of a movie.

I don't think the Rust Belt shows up too much, besides Chicago. I can't remember the last thing I saw that was visibly set or filmed in Ohio or Michigan, and they both have over 10 million people.

BTW, Twin Peaks is in northeast Washington.
Gran Torino was filmed in the Detroit area.

Or a horror set in some natural landscape.
No specific city, but I think suburban Sunbelt sprawl is virtually unrepresented in movies despite nearly half the country living there. Most movies set in the suburbs seem to be shot in California or in affluent suburbs around Chicago.
