The closing-in walls are about to crush us!

The ____ walls are about to crush us!

I was thinking about encroaching, but it implies more than just "closing in", is there a good adjective for this?

1 Answer 1


Try claustrophobic

The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as

Uncomfortably closed or hemmed in.

  • It doesn't imply an ever closing-in movement.
