Being afraid of what our own brains cook up when we’re just trying to sleep is what unites us as humans—scared, cowardly little humans. These people on Reddit shared the most terrifying nightmares they ever had. Like yours, they’re a little weird, a little silly, and a whole lot horrifying.


1. GlockTheDoor had this nightmare about clowns that we've basically all had at one time or another.

When I was a kid I had a nightmare that I was pinned down by clowns and tickled. To this day (24 now), I can not sleep on my back due to the fact that I feel I will get re-pinned and re-tickled. Clowns don't scare me at all, so I don't know what that was about. But I HATE being tickled. I try to sleep on my back, but it turns into me just laying there for like 2 hours. As soon as I roll to my stomach, I'm out.
