In other words, when the movie was shot in canada or another country but is supposed to pass off as a place in the US.
I was listening to the Running Scared commentary and the director said that they actually shot the movie in prauge, and not in Jersey. When watching it closely you can tell that he was real carefull not to show european landmarks.
The only way i can tell like a canadian production is when a few canadian accents slip in, when they're supposed to be americans.

The IMDB has a link for Filming Locations usually on the page for the movie.

Yep, definitely. I'm often curious as to where a movie was filmed and the end credits will answer the question.

if a movie is based in chicago theres a %70 chance that it was filmed in my hometown of Winnipeg.
apparently the peg looks alot like Chic town, i don't see how it does but the directors think it does.
