What is the Fear of Being Buried Alive Called?

Who wouldn't be scared of being buried alive?

What is the fear of being buried alive called? Well, taphophobia answers that question, but I’ve heard it said that if you are scared of something with good cause, it’s not really a phobia.

Did you see the movie Buried? That’s something worth being afraid of. (The method of death, not the movie.)

I have no idea if that’s true, but it makes some sense to me, not that anyone’s begging for my help with the new DSM.

But there you go: it’s called taphophobia.

I’m enjoying these posts. If you like this sort of thing, you might enjoy the fear of animals post.
