The most unforgettable corridors in sci-fi – in photos

By on 19 June 2013 | comments 2

CORRIDORS. Not just any old creepy, long, silent, anxiety-inducing, lonely, crippling, haunted corridors, but eerie, antiseptic, soulless, menacing, echoey, brooding, lugubrious corridors in sci-fi films. Corridors that when you scream no-one can hear you.

Corridors are the places in film that let the dialogue pause and the tensions build. You’d run along though them. If your legs let you.

These are the best corridors in sci-fi:
