Could it be spiders? How about clowns? Maybe you have a fear of heights or being bitten by a dog or how about liminal spaces?
So what is a liminal space? In architecture, liminal spaces are defined as “the physical spaces between one destination and the next.” Common examples of such spaces include hallways, airports, and streets.
It is completely understandable for people to have a fear of liminal spaces. Just imagine peering down a dark and narrow corridor with a red light glowing at the bottom it can be nightmare-inducing.
Let’s take a look at some rather creepy examples. Do you really want to go down there?
The lights went out in the hallway and this looked surreal
Is this the entry to Hell?
I work graveyard at the mall alone this was in the middle of the floor at 4 am this morning
“Pool is at the end of the hall.”
I’ve been walking in circles for hours. Will it ever end?
This corridor, man… this is gonna haunt me on dreams
Hallway in my hospital after an electrical explosion
It’s just the beginning
I was the last one to leave my dorm
Go to gate
There’s probably an evil test lab at the end
I walked out of my room and was greeted with this. The only light is from the exit signs at either end of the hall, but walking towards them doesn’t get you any closer. Some of the doors have a strange glow to them, but they all seem to be locked. What should I do?

Follow the white rabbit
Apartment hallway in Dallas, TX looks like a scene from the Titanic
The further I walk, the halls seem to get older. I could swear I’ve heard the sounds of brick sliding on brick, and when I go back, the hallway’s different. I have a feeling I won’t be getting out
Only a faint hum and my footsteps can be heard
This place doesn’t feel right
Hallway to bathroom in the mall – as soon as I entered it the Christmas music playing on the speakers got really faint and the sound of the lights grew louder
I ended up here
It’s 5 AM
My school before being demolished
My hometown movie theater
The hallway to my dentist office looks like a Stanley Kubrick scene
When I went down this hallway it felt like the air in my lungs was stolen
The lights in this hallway
Corridor of my apartment
It’s quiet for now in the station
Just trying to deliver a pizza, now I’m lost between dimensions
