When they are too perfect to be true, the suburbs can be downright ''creepy''. Mom baking fresh apple pies every day or in Nonfictional form, GlamorousSingleMother is discussed or neighborhood full of EthnicScrappy and BlackBestFriend is nonfiction. The kids getting A's in every subject on their report card (or doctoring their report card to make it look like they did. Or even throwing the fucker away.) Neighbors who [[SlasherSmile grin like their teeth are wired open]]... there's something [[UncannyValley unsettling]] about it. Extra points if the houses were [[CutAndPasteSuburb built on the same floorplan]] with relatively minor differences between them, making each house look eerily similar. In the United States, whose suburbs largely inspired this trope, many of these too-perfect towns sprang up in TheFifties during the post-UsefulNotes/WorldWarII housing boom. That's why this trope is commonly associated with the 50's and the cultural mindsets--''for better or for worse''--that went with the decade. Even if the show is set in the present day, the neighborhood will still have a decidedly old-fashioned vibe.

This is a TownWithADarkSecret, with the added twist that the Dark Secret is hidden in this "idyllic" neighbourhood. The Trope Namer is, of course ''Literature/TheStepfordWives'', a thoroughly creepifying book about such a town. Though TheStepfordWives was FollowTheLeader to RayBradbury and RichardMatheson as they did this first. This is also known as Bradbury Country in Lake County, Illinois, the pitch black horror short emerged in 2006 overseas invading a CampbellCountry publication where the ohcrap responses are pointed out haunting displays of IronicEcho are played up. Tornado Fodder anyone as it seems more like ReturnToOz than Judy Garland. Disney invokes the MindScrew era.

Stepford Suburbia is the sister-city to the UncannyVillage, and both are located in the CrapsaccharineWorld.

* In the American East Coast and Midwest, many of the major cities' picturesque outer suburbs sprang up in the 50's from farmland and wilderness during the post-World War II housing boom. Their dark secret? Most of them were the result of White Flight: white people fleeing the city proper when African Americans started moving north for work en masse in the 40's-60's. In fact, before the Civil Rights Act of 1964, many of these neighborhoods ''forbade'' minorities from buying homes there. Even today, many of these towns still carry a reputation of not being minority-friendly. The Western Suburbs of Greater Chicagoland adverted the not minority-friendly in TheEighties and TheNineties; but still it's creative nonfiction ''EerieIndiana'' as a story on [[http://www.wattpad.com/120260071-r-w-s-real-world-scenario wattpad]] discusses the joke and invokes it.

Ah, {{Suburbia}}: the sunny lanes, the friendly neighbours, the smiling children, the pastel colour scheme, some places AsTheGoodBookSays, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick the rotting skeletons hiding in everyone's closet]]. FreeRangeChildren and TheChewToy come to age here and go to TheCity as a night out on the town when in their twenties. Nerd who cuss harder than truckers isn't afraid to sock AssholeVictim and invokes a bloody brawl. BadassBookWorm invoked as BlackBestFriend is creative nonfiction. FlippingTheBird are invoked BewareTheNiceOnes. TheEighties introduced TheChewToy to the sitcom lexicon as in TurnOfTheMillennium it becomes a horror example within NewWeird; also the mature development of CulturalRebel for TheNineties.

Pitch Black Horror Websites on tripod and Geocities are often born here. HollywoodNewEngland is played up in TheVerse (ala JohnHughes. AllThereInTheManual, CreatorProvincialism and RealLifeWritesThePlot happen more than one thinks.) On the West Coast, CaliforniaUniversity a.k.a. SavedByTheBell and two characters from Minnesota are introduced MinnesotaNice (''hey asswipe wipe that fucking smile off your face. It's giving me the creeps.'' People from Chicago really are bastards as bastard has a point is invoked in this territory. The nerds are more like the real people than the actors they play; care for a self-demonstration shithead. FreakierThanFiction is often invoked in NewWeird real city climates for NightmareFuel as TheChewToy will invoke ConspiracyKitchenSink.)

In TheNineties, TheChewToy invoked NightmareFuel on The Klu Klux Klan, and for fuck's sake don't call the EthnicScrappy a bigot. CorruptHick is persona non grata here if they show up in a white sheet and pointy hat because they will get roundhouse kicked by EthnicScrappy into that burning cross. Don't try it unless one was the result of an uncle daddy; man [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2163376/Mistie-Atkinson-Mom-sex-tape-son-16-claims-just-case-genetic-attraction.html that joke]] has a ''grosser than gross'' hindsight as these jokes were told in the grade schools of these climates as it's TheChewToy who does it as a snappy comeback. SouthPark before it was even that. Don't even do it here; not fucking cool. FreakierThanFiction is invoked in the jokes i.e. Lorena Bobbitt in the 1990s.

CreatorProvincialism is often deconstructed in the NewWeird movements and GothicHorror played up here can be ''pitch black'' when invoking the nonfictional version of this trope Real Person Horror will invoke InternetBackdraft when discussing real life version of this. When HollywoodNewEngland and TheVerse are adverted using the real cities and real neighborhoods ala RichardMatheson sandbox climates with haunting call back to {{Stir Of Echoes}} the GothicHorror masterpiece from TheFifties re-emerged in TheNineties. AlwaysABiggerFish is sometimes invoked as a lampshade hanging, pulling one's chain don't try us. All tropes are tools, right, one's shitting the reader when they do that BlatantLies are played for horror when realization that this is the birthplace of ShatteredGlass and TheOmen.

This is WesCraven's native climate as he went to school in Wheaton and grew up in Ohio, so the nonfictional source material is often explored by indie authors in the Midwest (i.e. FlyoverCountry) taken to a scarier direction in print. OurGhostsAreDifferent are a very common premise when you have Creative Nonfiction Chicagoland played with as ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin (''[[http://www.talesofthetalisman.com/Tales2-1-TOC.html care to see]]?'' as it will induce trigger warnings.) Don't invoke "Pretend I'm From Missouri" here because we will turn you in the Cosmic ButtMonkey. Shattering your nerves yet pal? TheChewToy will do HypocriticalHumor when invoked especially when they worked at DangerousWorkplace across from [[https://www.uti.edu/ Grease Monkey University]]. Young Village, density populated and take mt. bike across and no fucking downtown. The next town over is named for a living person, does that spell out this trope for you? This one term is born from the climate of atmosphere in the most cynical of this trope and the pitch black tone when horror is played here; where it's not just the one village but the ''whole fucking county'' is the sandbox as it will invoke TheCity seamlessly.

HumiliationConga has it's ties to Chicago and the suburbs as Wheaton College students are a cast of full of ButtMonkey when it comes to local community college. As the DeanBitterman is played for drama in GothicHorror as RealLifeWritesThePlot when one has a principal whose fond of wearing a two-headed pumpkin mask, as he lampshades NightmareFuel. In some places he's OnlySaneMan in the GothicHorror played up to ''pitch black'' frights. A cast full of AcceptableTargets invoked, ''choke on that townie!''

TheChewToy invokes DonutMessWithACop in a small town. Some areas will give HPLovecraft nightmares as this is RichardMatheson and RodSerling's sandbox in TheFifties and TheSixties. Some will assume GoshdangItToHeck; smell the coffee motherfucker! ThrashMetal song, "I Am The Night -- Color Me Black" is the soundtrack for those who invoke Bigot Hunt. This track's lead singer grew up in this climate and will invoke those who are racist to think twice before invoking a Klan Rally in this territory. SoundtrackDissonance is often invoke NightMarefuel.

''Hogwards School of Tabloid Journalists'' are often invoked in some parts.

When they are too perfect to be true, the suburbs can be downright ''creepy''. Mom baking fresh apple pies every day, the kids getting A's in every subject on their report card (or doctoring their report card to make it look like they did. Or even throwing the fucker away.) Neighbors who [[SlasherSmile grin like their teeth are wired open]]... there's something [[UncannyValley unsettling]] about it. Extra points if the houses were [[CutAndPasteSuburb built on the same floorplan]] with relatively minor differences between them, making each house look eerily similar. In the United States, whose suburbs largely inspired this trope, many of these too-perfect towns sprang up in TheFifties during the post-UsefulNotes/WorldWarII housing boom. That's why this trope is commonly associated with the 50's and the cultural mindsets--''for better or for worse''--that went with the decade. Even if the show is set in the present day, the neighborhood will still have a decidedly old-fashioned vibe. MonochromeCasting is common at times but in some areas it's adverted.

This is WesCraven's native climate as he went to school in Wheaton and grew up in Ohio, so the nonfictional source material is often explored by indie authors in the Midwest (i.e. FlyoverCountry) taken to a scarier direction in print. OurGhostsAreDifferent are a very common premise when you have Creative Nonfiction Chicagoland played with as ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin (''[[http://www.talesofthetalisman.com/Tales2-1-TOC.html care to see]]?'' as it will induce trigger warnings.) Don't invoke "Pretend I'm From Missouri" here because we will turn you in the Cosmic ButtMonkey. Shattering your nerves yet pal? TheChewToy will do HypocriticalHumor when invoked especially when they worked at DangerousWorkplace across from [[https://www.uti.edu/ GreaseMonkey University]]. Young Village, density populated and take mt. bike across and no fucking downtown. The next town over is named for a living person, does that spell out this trope for you? This one term is born from the climate of atmosphere in the most cynical of this trope and the pitch black tone when horror is played here; where it's not just the one village but the whole fucking county is the sandbox as it will invoke TheCity seamlessly.

Ah, {{Suburbia}}: the sunny lanes, the friendly neighbours, the smiling children, the pastel colour scheme, some places AsTheGoodBookSays, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick the rotting skeletons hiding in everyone's closet]]. FreeRangeChildren and TheChewToy come to age here and go to TheCity as a night out on the town when in their twenties. Nerd who cuss harder than truckers isn't afraid to sock AssholeVictim and invokes a bloody brawl. BadassBookWorm invoked as BlackBestFriend is creative nonfiction. FlippingTheBird are invoked BewareTheNiceOnes. TheEighties introduced TheChewToy to the sitcom lexicon as in TurnOfTheMillennium it becomes a horror example within NewWeird; also the mature development of CulturalRebel for TheNineties. Pitch Black Horror Websites on tripod and Geocities are often born here. HollywoodNewEngland is played up in TheVerse (ala JohnHughes. AllThereInTheManual, CreatorProvincialism and RealLifeWritesThePlot happen more than one thinks.) On the West Coast, CaliforniaUniversity a.k.a. SavedByTheBell and two characters from Minnesota are introduced MinnesotaNice (''hey asswipe wipe that fucking smile off your face. It's giving me the creeps.'' People from Chicago really are bastards as bastard has a point is invoked in this territory. The nerds are more like the real people than the actors they play; care for a self-demonstration shithead. FreakierThanFiction is often invoked in NewWeird real city climates for NightmareFuel as TheChewToy will invoke ConspiracyKitchenSink.)

In TheNineties, TheChewToy invoked NightmareFuel on The Klu Klux Klan, and for fuck's sake don't call the EthnicScrappy a bigot. CorruptHick is persona non grata here if they show up in a white sheet and pointy hat because they will get roundhouse kicked by EthnicScrappy into that burning cross. Don't try it unless one was the result of an uncle daddy; man that joke has a ''grosser than gross'' hindsight as these jokes were told in the grade schools of these climates. SouthPark before it was even that. Don't even do it here; not fucking cool.
