How about having a night of watching horror movie before bed, or even documentaries on real life atrocities?

Watch High School Musical.

If that doesn't work, step it up and watch Twilight.

Watch all the Nightmare on Elm Street movies and read up on anything related to Freddy Kruger.

Lucid nightmare?! That is absolutely awful!! I have had that once. I was trapped and acid was being flooded into the room. I thought "no problem", I'm lucid I can just easily bust my way out through the door. But it didn't work... nothing I tried work and the feeling of panic as the acid got closer... god... I never felt anything like that in real life - it seems the lucidity intensified it! I eventually passed out, but found myself floating out of the sky, landing safely in my back yard amongst the grass.

I really wouldn't recommend it.

On a serious note, what always gets me nighmares is watching documentaries about UFOs and other creepy unexplained things. Its guaranteed to give you a nightmare. If you can fall asleep, that is

Hey Fallen Youth,

Before starting with LDing again, I didn't have a nightmare for many many years. But when starting to try WILD at bedtime (which never worked, and is very difficult btw.) I was falling asleep and "waking up" into SP about 90 minutes after that. And I had some very frightening nightmares by that, because when you can't move and the blanket feels as if it is made of lead then you will probably meet the "Old Hag" and hallucinate about all the frightening things you may encounter while being fixed to you bed.

If you want to risk it, I would recommend some attempts wink

PS: Or you could try that cat method of Siiw - I remember some movie where those cats lying on your chest are "stealing your breath" while you are sleeping :D

it's interesting, nightmares are the main thing that triggers lucidity for me.. the fear that "I'm so scared I wish this was a dream..oh wait, it is"

Have you ever heard of Binaural beats? If you haven't, look them up.
Anyway, most of them are really uplifting, but there are some that can make you anxious, scared, etc.
I haven't used them yet, but my brother has and several other people I know draait
