While it’s true that the term uncanny valley refers to disturbing humanoids, there are plenty of valleys out there that are deeply uncanny all on their own—even when they’re not filled with robots or zombies (or both).

  • Sweet Valley High
    Where teens never age. Or sext.
  • Great Rift Valley
    Come on, all those fossils in one place? Riiiiight.
  • Rudy Vallée
    “A kiss is still a kiss,” you say. But in a weird way it isn’t.
  • Porn Valley
    Do people really … is that a thing that people … but how do they … ?
  • Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
    All you need to know is that Roger Ebert wrote this Russ Meyer movie in six weeks, fueled by beef.
  • Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens
    Then they made another one.
  • Frankie Valli
    A man shouldn’t be able to sing that high.
  • Valles Marineris
    This massive crevice cuts a crooked line across Mars. Hey! Is that planet smirking at me?
  • Valet Parking
    You’re just going to give that guy your keys?
  • Valley Speak
    It sounds like English, but, like—omigod—it’s also, like, totally not.
  • Hidden Valley Ranch
    Just what are they hiding?
  • Silicon Valley
    Stock valuation as a proxy for material wealth. Oh, sure, nothing strange about that.
