I’ve had similar nightmares growing up as a child. Except instead, I’d walk into a dark room or something and the lights wouldn’t turn on, and I’d turn around to leave and I couldn’t move. I could see my family in the well lit living room, watching TV or something, and I’d try to call out, to ask them for help and my voice would be gone, something gagging me. It was some of the worst dreams I’ve ever had.
Wow, the ability to not leave would have been the worst! I can’t even imagine how horrible that would have been!
Loved the soundtrack to this one!
And this was my childhood too, except it was our basement. I would have to turn on each light along the way before advancing any further. And then it would be a race up the stairs in terror as I knew the lights were turned off again behind me.
It was almost like you could feel the darkness chasing you right? Run!
As a child, I did not suffer this fear as much, as I can see fairly well in the dark — in fact, I quite enjoyed staying up at night to see all the strange images that form on the asbestos-textured ceiling. On the other hand, I was more afraid of walking into cobwebs. As good as my night-vision is, everything appears granny and colorless like an old black & white TV set. Low-hanging cobwebs would disappear in all that visual static, and (as a kid) should anything brush against my hair — webs or otherwise — I would have had nightmares about it for days! Hell, the scene form that one Ewok movie — where everyone had to cross a bridge of thick webs in a cave — gave me the worst nightmare of them all!!!
Oh man, I still walk into cobwebs daily! There’s always that little doubt in the back of your mind that the spider might still be on you…somewhere! :)
