** [[spoiler: Bucky has this affect in when he's under Hydra influence in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' he's face becomes blank and shows little to no expression while doing acts of extreme brutality e.g choking Maria Stark in [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Civil War]] and even when he's not BrainwashedAndCrazy Bucky has little expression]].

** The smoothing affect used to make older actors look younger has this affect to some people, but not because it's bad the opposite ''it's too good''. It's almost like time traveling Micheal Douglas as Hank Pym in Film/AntMan is especially good and Kurt Russel as Ego in Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 [[spoiler: which also used to creepy affect later with his flesh regrowing]]. Robert Downy Jr also gets CGI younger makeover in Flim/CaptainAmericaCivilWar which actually took some people a few seconds to realize who it was.

* The early animation of ''Creator/{{Dreamworks}}'' was pretty infamous for this, promoting the phrase "Dreamworks face". This is very clear for the characters in ''WesternAnimation/{{Antz}}'' just [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/dreamworks/images/8/83/Antz-disneyscreencaps.com-8696.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20140731023857 look and weep]].

* Deliberately invoked by the victims of the SerialKiller in ''Film/TheCell'': He drowns, then bleaches his female victims to resemble dolls, and when the therapist [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind journeys into his mind]] they're captive but "alive." Naturally, one of them has a ''[[SubculturesInJapan kigurumi]]'' mask.

** This trope goes back as far as Disney's ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' film (and earlier if you count the SillySymphonies short "The Goddess of Spring"). In the original, Snow White is {{Rotoscop|ing}}ed, while other characters are not. As a result, she is the only one in the movie who looks unnatural. Ironically, she is the only detail of this ground-breaking film that looks old-fashioned even though rotoscoping was considered cutting edge technology at the time. The Seven Dwarfs are recognizable instantly, but Snow White fades into the background when she isn't singing or dancing. [[SatelliteLoveInterest Prince Charming]], by the same technique, manages to be even more of a blank than Snow White, partly because he wouldn't have [[FlatCharacter a personality]] if you gave him a rocket-powered step-ladder.

* The posters for ''Film/AChristmasCarol2009'', featuring Creator/JimCarrey as the voice of Scrooge and the three ghosts. The motion-capture and general animation style can make ''every'' character fall into this, but the Ghost of Christmas Past gets it the worst, especially when its face rapidly cycles between people Scrooge knows.

* A film called ''Film/{{Clifford}}'' (completely unrelated to the CliffordTheBigRedDog) featured comedian Creator/MartinShort playing the titular 10 year old boy, Clifford. The producers didn't actually try to make Short look like a kid. They dressed him up in a suit and tie with shorts, and kept his adult face and voice. The end result put Clifford well into the uncanny valley and caused the movie to tank.

* In the live action film of ''[[Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas The Grinch]]'', the Whos look like normal humans but with large ears and weirdly shaped noses...and it's rather unsettling.
