I'm just curious; what are some of the most frightening nightmares any of you have ever had? I mean some of the just absolute scariest imaginable? I'll start off with two of mine, both when I was a child. In the first, I was walking thru the living room in the house I grew up in, and it was at night; suddenly, unexpectedly, a hand grabbed my shoulder and spun me around, and there was nothing there. I still get shudders thinking about that. In the second one, I had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, and as I was doing my thing, this Huge hand came out of the mirror, beckoning to me, and this crazy sounding deep voice goes 'Pick up the Body'. I know that sounds crazy, maybe even laughable, but Man, I liked to have died; I woke up screaming, and I think I even wet the bed a couple of times the rest of that summer before I would use that bathroom in the middle of the night.
I had a very vivid dream once of demons hanging me by my wrists to a tree as they attempted to eat my heart. Every time I tried to scream nothing would come out; muted. The demons happened to be members of a church I went to... .
Another one I had was witnessing a woman I know being burned alive. The screams was excruciating.

When I was five I dreamt that I was looking sort of down at close range on a nun standing on a beam in a giant attic with lots of open beams and light streaming in. She was barefoot and holding a large wooden bowl of milk, but sort bobbing up and down in the milk were red, blue and greenish veins. I have no idea where those images came from, I wasn't raised religious, wasn't allowed to watch scary movies, and really didn't have a clue what or who a nun was at that age. All I know is it scared me so badly I wet the bed, which was the only time I ever did that as a kid. I get the chills just thinking about it
Later in life when I was in my late twenties I had a surgical test and they didn't put me totally out but did knock me almost out. I got home and laid down and had a half nightmare hallucination. I saw in the dream that I was in a very similar apartment to my own but empty, and I was in the middle of the living room when out of no where I was surrounded by these female vampire chicks with pale skin, light eyes and long white hair. They surrounded me and then began like spinning around me, and as they started spinning they leaned their heads back and opened their mouths and all of them had these like long needle like teeth, and as they opened their mouth they started screaming this shrill piercing scream. I woke up but I think due to the drugs they gave me for the test I couldn't become fully conscious. I saw this like floating squiggly animated ball that changed color in front of my field of vision and couldn't make it go away. Its hilarious now but animated squiggles on tv still give me the heebee jeebees. I don't ever really have nightmares just the occasional precog dream but mostly pretty mellow stuff but those two were the scariest ever.
“The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance …or change... logic can be happily tossed out the window. Religious mania is one of the few infallible ways of responding to the worlds vagaries, because it totally eliminates pure accident. To the true religious maniac, it’s ALL on purpose” – Stephen King, The Stand
I'm not sure if I would call those types of dreams nightmares or scary cause I dont get scare or find them horrible but anyhoo. I was once hack to pieces by a some deform creature and kill. Once it kill me I was floating above my corpse waching the creature put my body parts in a bathtub full with water which turn red very bloody.
But like I said I wasnt scare at all just kinda piss cause I let myself get kill. I very rarely get scare in my dreams but I do remember this one time I was. I was walking in a dark room there was a huge weird corpse on the ground it look sorta like a grey alien but 4 times larger and it was all white it was acutally glowing white light all over its body. I was sure it was dead and kneel down to touch its face then it quickly grab my hand very harsh. I was very frighten I started punching it in the face as hard as I could I woke up punching the floor my hand all bruise lol. Thats the only time I can remember being scare in a dream and I dream like that few times a month.

The one that comes to my mind occurred when I was 8 or 9 y/o. I was sitting in my room back in Alameda, CA, reading a book, my door was open and I could hear everyone down the hall. Within minutes the rug, which was made of of Legos that could be made to bend to any shape, rose up in mound shaped, much to my dismay, like the upper half of a human male. I mean from the top of the pants up with fully formed arms and head. The first time I had this dream I woke screaming for someone to help me, the second time I had almost made to the door all the while calling out for help but it caught me, the third and final time was my Sophmore year of High school, I managed to escaped and slam the door shut. I woke up at that point and haven't had that dream since. Most of my dreams tend to be my sub-conscious mind trying to help settle arguments, usually by revealing a deep seeded fear, but this one had me locking something up. Something that used to be stronger than me.
I am a Watcher by birth, and so it should not surprise any when my observations are truthful.

This is a good thread. I almost never have nightmares, but there was one dream in my childhood. I know I was younger than seven years old, because when I was about seven I remember telling this dream to a friend, and I started to cry while talking... Now it doesn't seem so vivid anymore. In a dream, me and my mother were running and hiding from some guy and woman. They lost our track, so me and my mother went to some kind of public toilet. I also remember, that the guy got bored and stopped chasing us, but the woman was stubborn. So, I remember my mother standing in front of a mirror, retouching her makeup perhaps, I'm a bit nervous and tell her that we should go, but she just looks at me and smiles, so relaxed. Suddenly this evil woman shows up. She screams something like: "here you are!!! now you'll get what you deserve!!" and calls my mother a name that isn't even her's. I don't remember exactly how it happened... but, basically... she cuts my mothers head off, in a sink, here lies her head, and her body in a bathtub, and maybe a head also in a bathtub (later), and the bathtub is so white full of red red blood. I'm standing in the corner crying, the woman finished her job, she looks at me superiorly, and walks away.

I don't have nightmares very often. My worst recent nightmare that I remember was when I dreamed that I was running around in a forest with two friends. We were running around and around when I suddenly fell in a lake (it came from nowhere) and sank to the bottom and got stuck in the mud. I tried to get up but I couldn't. I saw one of my friends swimming by and looking at me but she did not help me get up. I could really feel the panic. I woke up when I died in the dream. It felt so real.
The worst dreams that i have had are when you know you are in a dream and you cant get out. I remember this one when i was about 11 i was in a school and i knew i was in a dream and i wanted to get out, but couldn't...i asked someone "how do i get out" and the person said(dont remember if male/female)"go see the man in the next room" so i went to the next room and i remember seeing an old man; his face was so vivid i can remeber the details...he told me to just close and run my eyes...so i did and i woke up... Another isn't really a dream but what freaks me out the most is when you wake up and someone is at the end of the bed staring at you, or right up at your face!
I had a dream that i was holding a young child hostage with a gun, but before i held him hostage i told him not to worry i wont shoot you, and he said it was ok and he trusted me. So i had the gun to his head infront of a bunch of police saying my demands, i pulled the trigger thing back and said "ILL SHOOT HIM!!" but i guess it didnt pull it back all the way or something it let go and fired.... blew his head off. I woke up like freaking out, it sucked
I think the I had my scariest dream when I was about 7 or 8. It was very vivid, and i can still remember it in detail, even 25 years later. In my dream, I was awakened by my grandmother, and told there was a very bad storm, and that I needed to move into another room of the house. As i start to get up, the bed seems to grow, so I roll over and start crawling towards the other side(one side of the bed was almost against a wall). As soon as I started crawling, though, I felt a cold hand grip my ankle. I looked down, and there was a kind of chitinous looking (it was kind of scaly, but not like snake or fish scales..more like it was made of beetle shells or something) brown and black hand reaching up from between the bed and the wall, wrapped around my ankle. I tried to scream, but couldn't make any sound, and it started pulling me back towards the edge of the bed. I started kicking, and managed to kick my leg free, and dived off the bed. I looked back just in time to see the hand slipping down behind the bed, and I ran out of the room. I told my grandmother, but she wouldn't believe me, so (being a dream), i let it go and sat down to wait out the storm. The last thing i remember is looking back towards the bedroom, and the lights there being out, but the fingers of the hand wrapped around the doorframe, and what looked like a bunch of glowing eyes in the darkness..*shiver* still spooks me.
Another, when I was probably around 12 or 13, in my dream I had gotten up to use the bathroom, and I noticed when I walked in that the light was already on in the bathroom, and that the shower curtain was open (this was kind of unusual, the light would normally have been off and the curtain closed), but I didn't really think anything of it. I used the restroom, than went to the sink to wash my hands. When I looked in the mirror, I could see over my shoulder that the shower curtain was now closed. I turned and walked to the shower, and pulled back the curtain, and now there were two creatures hanging from the ceiling. They had short, stubby legs and small clawed feet that were holding onto the cieling, both were brown in color, one was dark brown, and the other was sort of a tan color, and the tan one was about 1/3 smaller than the dark colored one. Other than the legs, they were just long, rectangular shapes, about 4 feet long, 2 1/2 feet wide, maybe 1 1/2 feet thick, and ALL mouth. When I saw them, they both turned towards me and basically split along the narrower side, making two 4'x2' jaws with lots of sharp teeth and lunged at me..that's when I woke up. Not quite so many shivers remembering that one, but still quite scary.

DREAM #1) A few years ago, I had a dream where I found myself wandering in an underground cavern-type place all alone. I then saw a very aged man with a really long white beard and long white hair, dressed in a white robe, holding a wooden staff. I believed him to be God himself. He didn't talk to me, but it was kind of like he was telling me where to go telepathically, without saying a word. It was weird. He was telling me to go into this room right in front of him, so I went. Once I was in the room, the room started spinning really fast and the whole time I'm in that spinning room, I see the devil's face in front of me. And that's where the dream ended. So basically, I saw God, and I was sent to hell.
DREAM #2) I also had a dream not too long ago, maybe a couple months ago, where I was just at home, doing nothing really, and suddenly I just start hearing a little girl laughing and giggling. I look behind me and see the tablecloth being tugged, by nothing, right in front of my eyes. And also see a plant moving, as if someone's messing with it, all while still hearing the laughter of the little girl. I'm still getting chills while writing about it. It was just a strange feeling.
DREAM #3) Happened 2 days after dream #2. I was outside one night, it was really dark out, and I wandered off into a big cemetary, all alone. Then while in the cemetary, I went into this small house-type building that was in the center of the cemetary. The second I stepped into the building, I instantly felt an unexplainable EVIL presence. It was completely dark in there, with the exception of a few lit torches on the walls. I spent less than a minute in there and the evil feeling just got so bad, I just ran out of there and out of the cemetary as fast as possible. I just can't really explain that evil feeling I got. It was haunting and I've never felt anything like it. It felt so real.
I had a dream Sinbad ran a 2 hour special... AHHH!!!
But when I was younger I watched a lot of Goosebumps, and I remember being TERRIFIED of the slappy doll. I would have countless nightmares with HIM involved.
One dream I remember in particular was actually really creepy...
I was in my house alone and it was late at night, I decided to walk up to the highest floor in the house. It was my parents room... So the first thing I did was I turned on the light, nothing out of the ordinary. A little bit to my right was a mirror, I felt compelled somehow so I walked towards it. I looked up into the reflection and I could see both myself and...(I know how weird this sounds)...Ronald McDonald (lmao) standing a distance behind me. But he wasn't goofy looking at all... he had sharp teeth and a sinister look in is eyes... kind of like like an evil clown sort of thing. I turned around and he was just standing there... He didn't move at all, he just stood there smiling with his wide mouth open and his eyes would follow me. I started to breathe really fast... I looked back into the mirror, and he was gone! I turned around again just to make sure... but things were different. There was blood everywhere and it was coming from a lifeless cut off human head. I walked towards it and picked it up, (WHY??!!! I DON'T KNOW) It was Ronalds head, and it was just smiling at me with the same look he had on his face earlier. It's eyes were wide open and it would just blink...
Oh, good thread. I just had one recently (past week) where I somehow woke up and it was the future. I was walking out on this wooden platform/porch thing that overlooked this huge lake, trying to figure out where I was, and then someone was telling me that I couldn't go back. There were explosions across the lake and people started running into the building, and when I went in, I realized it was where my future self lived, and that my daughter (who is only 4) was all grown up and gone and I had missed her whole childhood! It was so sad, and I woke up near tears...
