I had a nightmare about the movie, “Poltergeist”, which I have never even seen. I don’t know much about the movie, I can assume it is about a meddling spirit and I think there is a little girl involved. As far as I can remember, I hadn’t seen or read anything recently about this movie, which made dreaming about it all the more strange. I can’t really remember what my nightmare was about either but it turned into another sleep paralysis experience.
I don’t know how I knew I was dreaming about “Poltergeist”, except that I remember that word being said over and over. Maybe I was imagining it, maybe I was saying it myself. I was aware that I was dreaming and that I was terrified. For some reason I decided I was dreaming about the movie, “Poltergeist”, rather than an actual poltergeist but I have no idea how I came to that conclusion.
I was terrified and every time I managed to sort of wake up, I couldn’t move and I couldn’t fight my weariness. I panicked. I knew I would slip back into my nightmare and there was nothing I could do about it. This happened multiple times. I kept switching between a dream world, the real world and the world of sleep paralysis.
I think I tried to remind myself that I haven’t even seen “Poltergeist” and therefore couldn’t really be affected by it. Maybe that is how I managed to finally escape the horrors of what I was experiencing.
I have no plans to see “Poltergeist”, is it actually that scary?
