The sensation of ‘uncanniness’ is an especially difficult feeling to define precisely. Neither absolute terror nor mild anxiety, the uncanny seemed easier to describe than in terms of what it was not than in any essential sense of its own… The psychologist Ernst Jentsch, in an essay of 1906,… attributed the feeling of the uncanny (‘Unheimlich’) to a fundamental insecurity brought about by a “lack of orientation”, a sense of something new, foreign, and hostile invading an old, familiar, customary world
