I watched the movie "Journey to the Center of the Earth", based off a novel. I was much younger, but I had 4 dreams in the 4 consecuive nights following the movie where lava was going to kill me. You see, the thing is, the ending scene of the movie shows our heroes in a lost city under a volcano. I suppose if there's one thing I'm scared of, it is not having anything solid beneath my feet to run on. So when the ground breaks and gives way to the lava, I get the funny feeling it could happen to me.

It was night, and a surveyor was in the street inspecting a recent crack in it with a faint orange glow coming from it. I ran out of the house after our cat in the direction of the surveyor. He warned of danger, and then the ground in front of me started breaking up. The ground was as floating icebergs in a sea of lava. I ran back home, where the ground hadn't broken up yet. I went to the 2nd floor of the house (which also was a lighthouse or aircraft control tower. I was watching as the ground broke up all the way down the street and approached our house. I saw mom and dad in the drieway. I was like, "run guys, run!" They stood there staring up at me probably wondering, wtf? I decided to take action. I grabbed the car keys and got in the car, started it up, and took off the road perpendicular to the one that was breaking up. At this point a giant lava wave had formed and was in close pursuit. The road I was on hit a dead end, and I hit the brakes at the end. I looked out the back window of the car right as the wave of lava come crashing down on me.

Before and after going to sleep, I was hallucinating about lava pouring over the bookshelves and the ground breaking up. Totally scarry.

These days I try to fight whatever would usually scare me. I had a dream where I punched the boogyman's face flat.

Fight what scares you. Pull out a knife and say, "you want a piece of me? I'll cut you!!!!11!1!one"
That's my solution nowadays.

My dream last night was kind of like a flashback to my grandfather's funeral in '96, his last wishes were to see my sister and I before he died, but we couldn't make it happen (he was ~2,000 miles away and I was in school). Since he was always dear to me it was hard going to his funeral, I was a kid so I didn't understand death. But last night I was back in the funeral home with my family and grandmother, except all the walls floor resembeled rivited sheet metal and the body was just lying on a metal altar with a sheet over it. I was trying to speak to my grandmother but her and everyone else were just staring straight ahead, an uneasy silence set in and it felt like I was alone. I looked over at the body and he was sitting up staring me directly in the eye ( eek2 ), then I woke up.

I wouldn't call this a nightmare because I was more startled and shocked instead of scared. I also believe that it didn't click that I was dreaming since it was based on a past experience (except for the really strange parts), so I wouldn't call this a bonafide nightmare but it certainly was spooky..

I used to have recurring dreams about dinosaurs. The last dream I had of dinosaurs was a nice one though, it contained a t-rex and it was friendly. This dream, however, was quite scary.

I was in a deserted theme park with a my best friend (Steph), my brother (Neil) and some other people I didn't recognize. The first dinosaur was a t-rex. He chased us around but there were little secret places where we could hide. We dodged him and we all fell down this dark hole and landed in a kind of cave. In the centre of it was another hole which was the top of a red slide. We had no other choice but to go down this slide.

Everyone vanished apart from Neil and I. The end of the slide was in a dark house. The t-rex was in the kitchen (behind us, I don't know how he fitted in the room) and we were in the corner of the living room. I decided to run for it, out of the house. I would have made it but my brother ran after me. The dinosaur saw us, it sort of roared and ran after us. I woke up at this point.

I lay down in bed for a while before I decided to go back to sleep.

This time, I was with Steph and the dinosaur was an velociraptor. We both hid. Even though velociraptors can see properly (their vision isn't based on movement like t-rexes) in the dream the dinosaur's vision was based on movement. Steph stayed still but I moved because I didn't want to stay anywhere near the dinosaur. It walked straight past Steph and came towards me. I woke up before it actually saw me or got the chance to kill me.

The dreams don't feel scary now but when I dreamt them they were terrifying.

I remember my very first nightmare. hehe...

I was six...

I had a dream I woke up and was getting readdy for school and i was walking through the dining room to go wake my parents up for some reason(they usually woke me up). About half way through all the power went out and it was completely dark. My dad and mom ran into the kitchen with a flashlight and we looked at the glass door and there were a shocking monkey as i called them on it. lol...it was a little monkey like a foot tall with yellow electricity all around it and it like stuck to stuff. My dad went into my sisters bedroom to wake her up and i followed and i saw him start to turn on the light and I yelled "no!" and he turned it on and he got electricuted and died.

I was SOOOOO sad when i woke up. I was crying and screaming. tounge2

Oh what an awful dream. I couldn't help but laugh about the monkey, but I know I would have been terrified too =S

I once dreamed I was in this huge house we supposedly bought, and I started exploring it alone. I get lost inside and this ghost-man leads me into a garden. In there, I see my mother and a friend of mine laughing and waiting for me, but there's something wrong: I walk towards the far side of the garden and there's a small graveyard. In the first's grave inscription I read my name, and then find myself buriend inside. I got really scared, because I could still see them (my mom and friend) walking around the park but I was buried alive. I woke up and almost jumped off the bed.

My recurring nightmares...
PostPosted: Sun 30 Jul, 2006  Reply with quote

First though... i want to ask...
Metagog: Was your metallic sky / shrinking nightmare one of those fever-dreams? it sounds very abstract like the fever-dreams i have (fever dreams are the worst... see mine below)

Anyway, I haven't had my recurring nightmare in alnost 10 years, it started when i was 5 though so it occurred for about 15 years I'd say. The subject of my nightmare is Kermit the Frog. Yes that's right, but he's notsilly or nice he's really creepy in these dreams. He runs toward me with his spindly arms shaking around crazily, and when he reaches me he tickles me. Tickles me... to death? It's not clear because it's at that point that I wake up. The very first one happened like this (keep in mind i was five).
I want a snack from the drawer in the kitchen which is for stroing bread but also goodies such as coffe-cakes and ring-dings. My mom says I may not have one. So in response to this, as I walk toward the bread drawer anyway, I say "poop". (Remember I'm five). I'm calling my mom a poop. But I hear the word repeat back to me from far off. I say "stop that", and the words "stop that" repeat back to me again from far away. I look toward the source of the voice. Far in the next room, peeking through the sliding glass patio door, is Kermit the Frog. When I see him he runs toward me and when he reaches me, tickles me and I almost immediately wake up.

The fear of Kermit the Frog probably originates from a couple things. When I was young there was a bizarre skit/episode of Sesame Street where Kermit is in the swamp, and a ghostlike version of kermit runs toward the camera wi8th arms waving wildly. There was some song that this went along with but I don't remember what the point of it was, I do remember though that it was in fact real and quite creepy. Second, I had a Sesame Street record when i was very young (4 or 5) which I would listen to on my toy record player. There was a song that I beleive Grover sings in his scratchy voice about a lost dog. During this song on one occasion the record skipped, and it kept repeating in that strange voice "i lost my, dog/ i lost my, dog...". It scared the crap out of me! Thirdly, Kermit while cute to some is honestly just creepy-looking. ultra-thin gangly limbs, freaky ping-pong ball eyes with oddly shaped pupils, that weird many-pointed collar around his neck... and most importantly, his weird muppet-like movements. The one that really gets me (even now) is that face he makes when he's mad, and his mouth sucks inward and tightens, and then Kermit shakes in anger and turns to the camera... Yuck!
I have no idea what the tickling was about. Maybe just any kid's "fear" of tickling, fear meaning the game of the parent saying "I'm going to tickle you / I'm gonna get you" and you running away from Mom/Dad/whoever in pseudo-fear and them catching you and tickling you "against your will" so to speak.

Anyway, that was my recurring nightmare for years and years until maybe early college (at that point I had told my roommates about it and they made a lot of jokes/pranks about it so I think the act of talking about it often erased the scaryness of it). The dream pattern always was: something strange would happen, and I'd test the waters so to speak and call out something ot look around, and I just knew that I'd turn and see Kermit in the near distance, or that he'd be about to barge into the bedroom. Then he'd reach me / the bed, tickle me, dream over.
In semi-lucid dreams in the past, I would actually conjur him up purposely to end a creepy or annoying dream (I knew I'd wake up after he got me). As time went on, I could escape Kermit, or defeat him somehow although by bizarre dreamly means. For instance, one time I defeated him by taking the lawn mower and running it through a puddle of water Kermit was standing in/by, which caused the water to rise somehow (in a vertical column) and drown him.

Also on this topic, the last time I definitely recall dreaming about Kermit was a hypnogogic nightmare I had in highschool. I was laying on my back, drifting to sleep. However, I never lost conciousness (obviously), I could feel and preceive the transition to dreamland. I could still see my bedroom, but i could hear slithery things approaching and I couldn't move (sleep paralysis). the slithery things were like lizards that i could feel crawling on the bed covers. I looked up and saw Kermit, making an extra creepy face with really awful looking eyes. I woke up afraid to go back to sleep because I was worried the dreams would come before I was fully asleep again. Hypnogogic hallucinations are scary as hell! I think the "old hag" is a great name for those by the way.

Finally, here's that fever-nightmare I promised. I had this while sleeping in my mom's bed age 7 maybe, early evening, bedside lamp still on, sweaty hot and unconfortable with a fever... I dreamed of a completely white place, perfectly featureless white. There were black blobs on it, they were roundish and in 3-d , but very abstract, black objects. Here's the best I could describe the "action" of the dream: there were big black things, and there were small black things. It was mostly a horrible sick sensation I felt during the dream, this horrible abstract thought of big and small things and feeling of things growing/shrinking but not sure which was actually happening or if they both were simultaneously. I don't think there were any sounds except maybe for pseudo-voices which still seemed half in my mind and didn't say anything intelligible, just echoey thoughts. YUCK
Very abstract like metagog's shrinking metallic world, that's why i asked if it was a fever-dream also.

So those are my top nightmares. I don't have too many anymore thankfully, at worst it's mostly dreams about highschool college where I have to take a test that I'm totally unprepared for, have something due that day that I haven't even started on, late for classes / not knowing where my classes are etc. Sometimes there's a rationale for why I'm back in highschool or college, but mostly I either just accept it or have a nagging feeling of why am I in school?

Sorry for the extra-long post, especially given that it's my first!! (I just wrote down my first dream journal this morning...)

A very scary nightmare I recently had started out a school dream, then a video game and eventually a nightmare. The whole video game was a recycled dream I guess, from somebody else, or from me, with parts of real video games, movies etc.. It ended as there were a few people in some kind of house. There was this huge metal door that was going to close. I shot some kind of rocket in it, like the ones from Super Mario and it went into the door before it closed, so it was in the house with the people. This was wrong. It had to close before the rocket goes in, or I shouldn't even shoot the rocket, or something like that. So I had to do it again. But I had to wait until this scene was over, to start out new. I couldn't press "reset" on my "console" because I guess it would erase my saved files. So I suddenly saw the inside of this house. I was watching the people inside the house. They were about to die. I knew it, because there was this rocket (now it was outside and I was waiting for the time it shot against the door and everybody is dead, I guess). I saw the people live and every little moment they were about to die, I was soooo scared of this moment when they were there and the lights just went out, their life was at the end. I saw them and waited and waited. They were still alive. The scene changed and there was a text "September *something*". It was icy. Inside the house. It was winter (in September, yeah, stupid), showing that they survived so long, the rocket still didn't explode yet, which showed the huge cruelness of this whole thing. There was a baldheaded girl with her child now. It was some kind of a survival tragedy. She said to her child "YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE A NAME" and the next thing I know she was crying and saying "yes, you have a name, you're Robby, it's all good". And I was still waiting for the death. What then happened I don't know. I think I pressed reset (which symbolized the death of those people also) and woke up. It could also be though, that I saw how it ended. You can't imagine how terryfing it was for me to see people die. I wouldn't see them die, like you see people die, I would just see the black screen, because I was all those people myself, it was myself who would know how it was if everything ends.

I think your emotions in dreams are very intense, lol.

Your worst dreams

<mod> moved into the sticky "A diary to be used by all... The Nightmare Diary" moogle </mod>

Nightmares, long throes of FA's, sleep paralysis, and other horrible experiences. Post them here!

(Yes, I realize I'm a total n00b here, but there was no thread like this that I could find and I'm sure it would be interesting to see what people have experienced. If there is a similar thread, merge or delete this. Thank you.)

My worst dream experience was long before I started my LD quest. The setting was HL2esque, but HL2 was not even in development at that time. It was a huge flat field of concrete, completely filled with containers, like a seaport. I was there and I was a disempodied observer. Suddenly, the containers started to open. Inside were rows and rows of corpses. They all stared right at me with contempt in their eyes. One of the corpses were "selected" and put on some sort of altar. Then some sort of character(I have forgotten what) started beating the corpse. It was extremely brutal and visual, I felt terrified and disgusted and at the same time sad for the corspe being mutilated. I don't remember more of that dream, but what I've written here I will never forget... overspannen

i have this very odd nightmare that is recurring throughout my dreamlife. It's a bungalow on a farm. actuallly, well, its a bungalow thats a farm, but its also situated right on a main road, at a T-junction, and its surrounded by corn fields.
I enter the house with my family, its night time, the lights are all off and it looks like my house inside. Under the table in the kitchen, there is a big Black Panther, and im not even afraid of Panthers!? maybe my subconscious is trying to tell me something? The house sets on fire due to a bomb? the place burns down and only I escape. That's the main part of the dream, but also, sometimes when i have the nightmare, bits are added, but those could possibly be one dream fading into another.

Back ground info.
I was on my old farm that I grew up on (For the first 12 years of my life) and naturally since Im a farm boy, I play in the barn. The same barn when I was young decieded that I would smash all the windows. (Seemed like a good idea at the time..)

The nightmare that I recall was:
I was going into the barn to play in the upper part, and I slide the door and close it behind me so nobosy knew I was inside. Theres a long corridor that I have to walk down to get to the ladder. And I see a light on the ground, we leave it there for the cats and kittens. Thats the only thing I can see, its pitch dark out also.
I look up and I see my dad sitting on a square bail, wearing his old blue housecoat hes sitting with his legs crossed and his hands sitting in his lap. I look at his face its pure green, red eyes, stiches all over his face decaying all way. I started to run since the door was far behind me. I ran towards it, but its like I couldnt get to it, screaming I look back, he was running after me and gaining. I run faster and couldnt find the door, it was a never ending hallway. I look back and he give a blood curling shreak. Grabs onto me..

I woke up right there, hot, sweating and panting. This doesnt seem like a nightmare, but my dad only died a year earlyer..
Only one person (Now this community) knows about that story, which I only told 4 years later.

I have had LOTS of nightmares when I was young, more than dreams. My first nightmare was about me in my old home, in the basement which is were we lived. When outside the front door, it kind of went downhill. At the bottom were some trashcans. Now to the dream. I was playing LEGO near the front door (which was open) when my LEGO's broke to pieces. One of them went outside. When I went to pick up the piece, I went down the ramp like a slide and landed in the trash cans when a HUGE amount of rats dragged me in the darkness and ate me. Then I woke up.
