Speaking of Whedon, Summer Glau and creepy ballet, another example comes to mind.

Sarah VO: Science now performs miracles like the Gods of old. Creating life from blood cells, or bacteria, or a spark of metal. But they're perfect creatures. And in that way, they couldn't be less human. There are things machines will never do. They can not possess faith. They can not commune with God.
Sarah VO: They cannot appreciate beauty. They cannot create art. If they ever learn these things, things, they won't have to destroy us. They'll be us.
The perfect ballet performed by a Terminator is creepy, because it the Terminators threaten to replace us, yet imitate the beauty of ballet perfectly.
(Summer Glau also used her ballet skills in the Serenity movie (based on Firefly TV series) in a fight scene where she defeats about 30 people in hand to hand combat).
