I have to be honest: that robot freaks me out, more so than anything I've seen in a horror/slasher/thriller movie or even Book of Vile Darkness or Libris Mortis. Why? Because it has human teeth (or at least dentures), which, for some bizarre reason, is creeping me out.

So, to make this thread a discussion, what in particular freaks you out?

Spiders. Although, I suppose, spiders with human teeth would be even more horrifying.

Actually, now that I think about it, human teeth are just pretty disturbing, and anything you put them on will also be made more disturbing by it. Like, dolphin with human teeth. Bunny with human teeth. Pumpkin with human teeth. Kirby with human teeth.

Teeth are gross.

EDIT: Although, it's possible they're just a gateway into the uncanny valley.

Yeah, that's definitely an uncanny valley thing. They're a great example of something human that should NEVER be put on something not human. :smalleek:

You will not want to look at this.

I warned you.

You sure you want to?

Neh? That's not that bad. The Technologic robot is worse, in my opinion. That thing is freaking disturbing.

But other monkeys have them too! It's true!

This is a matter of the valley, indeed. Teeth are but one complex adversary of the human body that we do not wish to see on something so simple or so inhuman.

Thus why we need more Wall-Es. They're so cutely cartoonish. :3

I have a lot of stuff that freaks me out, but most I also like very much.

Like this guy (http://beanjamish.deviantart.com/art/PD-Mask-of-Death-131756648?q=sort%3Atime%20gallery%3Abeanjamish&qo=250).

Would this thread's title be in refference to this (http://muppetswithpeopleeyes.tumblr.com/), perchance?

I love uncanny valley stuff, and I can bring some more if anyone wants it.

very little freaks me out... um slugs in a way... pigs i guess (i don't like pigs)... and i guess i am afraid of the dark... but Geminoid DK really makes my skin crawl.

Oh my god, that's actually kinda awesome! Doesn't seem to creep me out in any way, though. Thanks for the link.

I've always liked that video, actually. The robot looks like a skinless Chucky.
