These movies to avoid if you have claustrophobia are likely to incite nightmares or worse.
If you have claustrophobia, you may find just reading about some of these flicks to be an uncomfortable experience. The best claustrophobic movies are quite terrifying for those who are genuinely unnerved by tight spaces.
