People on their first visit to Utah's slickrock country often experience deja vu -- the sense that they've seen this country's geology before. Chances are, they have seen cliffs, canyons, rivers and hoodoo formations before in movies or television.

Southern Utah has long provided spectacular scenery for westerns, and just plain wild/weird scenery for science fiction or horror movies.
