Claustrophobia is a common theme in horror, especially horror film, and there’s an abundance of horror set in tight places, winding hallways, etc. But what about the opposite?
A few years ago, I was in a major NFL sports stadium when it was completely empty of crowd, staff, or players; likewise, a few nights ago, I was in an enormous empty warehouse. Both elicited the same feeling of slight dread - just being in something so HUGE and dead rather than something tight and constrained. It’s like being next to Godzilla or a Lovecraftian God that just hasn’t looked in your direction yet. Huge, looming, oblivious to tiny you.
Have there been any horror movies, or other horror media, to really capture or play up this “agoraphobic” rather than claustrophobic dread?
