Tall Stalker


A couple years ago I was living in a trailer where me and my two brothers shared a room. One night, I was asleep and began to have a nightmare of something I've never seen before. A tall (like 7ft or something like that) scrawny manlike thing was chasing me down a hallway on all fours while ripping its arm off and throwing it at me. It's face was plain with only large orange eyes and a slit for a mouth.

I woke up panicked, feeling like I wasn't safe. I looked around the room and saw nothing at first and my brothers were still asleep.

Then I glanced at my doorway and saw the same creature thing staring at me. I looked it in the eyes and it seemed to be shocked that I could see it. It's eyes widened before it quickly moved out into the living room. I didn't know what to do, I just threw my blankets over my head hoping I was still dreaming but I knew I wasn't. I was scared shiatless. I can't remember my dream from after I fell asleep again but for the next few days I was a lot more on edge and alert.

I want to know if anyone else has seen this thing or if anybody knows if it's got a name. I can't be the only one that's seen this. I hope not.

Ahoy SharkBoi,

I agree with the ladies. Sometimes a fitful nightmare wakes up with you and continues as your head begins to boot back up. You shouldn't worry, nor should you be scared; and judging from its reaction, the nightmare was more scared of you than you were of it.

Smooth sailing,

Hi SharkBoi
It seems like you could've had a false awakening. This is similar to what lady-glow is saying. This could've been a nightmare that continued after you supposedly awoke.
Love & Light, Rachel 😊

Hello SharkBoi.

Do you remember being exposed to any material -books, movies, TV shows, video games, etc- that could have triggered this dream?
In my opinion, it's possible that this was only a nightmare that continued playing after opening your eyes but without being fully awake. If you didn't experience anything of such nature before or/and after this particular case, it's safe to say that there wasn't anything paranormal at your house.

Do you still live there?

Thanks for sharing.
