    I had a dream where someone broke in my house. He then tied my mom and me and put us on the couch. He then ask me who my mom was and I told he she was my mom. Then he killed my mom and I cried and beg him to stop. After that I ask him who he was and he said he was my pillow and he kill himself and fall right next to me on the couch with a creepy smile on his face.

    I had a dream I shot this guy in the back of the head with a gun because I don’t like him.

  • Zachary // Mar 22, 2014 at 1:01 pm

    I keep having these dreams where I am being chased by a killer (a different one every time) and I try my best to run away or hide but before I wake up I go towards them and kill them. I don’t think I’ve seen those people’s faces in real life so I’m wondering, what do these dreams mean?

  • Arnyah // Jul 19, 2013 at 3:35 am

    I had this dream that two of my friends tried to kill me during a party that my parents hosted. Then who ever I ran to for help would a always die so I went to my sister and kept hugging her (for her safety) and one of the killers grabbed me and th other on grabbed my sister I killed the person and went to help my sister. My sister didn’t make it alive and we got no justice.

  • Arianna // Apr 14, 2013 at 5:41 am

    I have had this dream once or twice before. I don’t know why. Somehow I am at this run down place with 4 people in it. Me, a girl that I never know her name, this kid named Zack that goes to my school but I don’t really know him well, and the killer.

    So it starts off as Zack, the girl, and I watching some ritual. There is an old woman, a baby in some crib, and a mother and a father. The lady begins to tattoo words on the babies leg and it cries and screams. I really wish I could remember what the words said. I went up there to see what they were doing and I saw. I was scared. Then all of a sudden the baby jumped up out of the crib and onto the floor next to her parents smiling. It was so creepy. My body started feeling tense. The feeling was so real!!! I walk back to my seat and all of those people turn and look at me with a creepy smile, then cock their head. I tell Zack and that girl about what they were doing. We were all scared.

    Then the scene changed. Now my perspective changed too. Now I was seeing through the eyes of that one girl. It was so odd to change bodies. So she was sitting it the way back of the building, the laundromat. There was only one dryer running left. She was sitting in a chair eating chips. The room was dark and you could see flashes of lightning. The room was tense. There was Also a long field of inside grown corn up against the wall. That was so weird. So then she heard the corn shook as if someone was trying to hide in the corn and creep up on her. She said “I can hear you guys”. No response…. Then the old lady jumped out an had a knife. She began chasing her around. I’m not sure what happened to her because the scene switched again.

    Now I could see through my own eyes again. Now Zack and I were running down a long hall. The old women chasing after us now. I run into the bathroom. There were two doors, it was such an abstract bathroom, dark. I try to lock the first door but it’s broken so I run to the other door and leave it unlocked so I can run out. The old women says “I know your in there and I’m going to get you”. I’m terrified at this point. My heart is raving, I can feel it in my real body too. What happens in my dream my body actually goes through the feelings and emotions. It’s quite scary because it makes my dream become a reality. So anyways, she opens one door and I see her with the knife. So I run out the other. Zack is just standing in the hall smiling like everything is okay. Somehow that women managed to slit my rust in a distinct pattern. They look like little triangles. There is no way she could have possibly done that. I show zack and he said “holy shit”. He sees her behind me and we run. I grab a bandana and tie it around my wrist with it extra tight with pressure to make it stop bleeding. We run and I’m ahead now. I run into this room because I hear the woman’s voice I slide up against the wall next to the doorway hoping se wouldn’t find me. Zack runs in all of a sudden and hands me some green box and laugh loud as if this was a joke. I was so scared I could hear her coming. I slap him and tell him to hide or he will blow my cover. He doesn’t and I see the woman’s face. Then I woke up. I’m not sure what ever happened to anyone. I don’t dream often. But when I do, they are the same dreams I remember having a little while ago. My dreams are usually scary and about murder. They also reoccur and never make sense.

  • Dianna // Mar 22, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    In my dream my boyfriend (of 8yrs) and i were having a really heated argument, he got very aggressive and i got scared. So i jumped in the car with our 3yr old son and my boyfriends mother. I remember feeling very tense and frightened in this dream. I jumped in th car and drove really fast to escape, even ramming the gate down. Out of the blue i seen this guy i know, and it so happens my boyfriend never liked him, (in reality he always told me this guy like me, so for that reason does not like this guy). My boyfriend stabed this guy in the gut. Next thing i know im at a lodge with my son,my bf mother and my brothers two kids (the boy is 9yrs and girl 5yrs) my boyfriend found us and said that ,that other guy was dead. He lied and said he was muged and killed, but he looked stright into my eyes and smiled, then he tossed a bloody dagger at me. I dont know if i caught it cause i woke up. And also i just remembered he also killed a woman he broke her neck and she has the same name as me. This was at the first location when we were running away. Oh and the dagger he used to kill that guy belongs to my dad, a gift from my brother. Now this is where it gets strange, the reason i woke up was because i heard my nephew screaming in his sleep “oh no, im getting out of here, im getting out of here” and another funny thing is i called my bf after i had this dream and he told me that the guy at his work had a dream that my bf hit a coworker with a bottle and broke his coworkers nose. So what could all this mean?

  • cat // Feb 15, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    I had this dream where there wasa serial killer close to home and it turned out to be my mom. At the end she held my three little sisters hostage and torctred them by cutting them. (not enough to kill). I ran out of the house feeling sick because of their haunting screams. I woke up briefly to fall asleep and be back in the house. One of my little sisters ran out of the house trying to get away only to be caught and stabbed to death in front of me. I woke up horrified hearing her screams. What does this mean?

  • Recurring :( // May 21, 2012 at 5:05 am

    I have been having the same dream now since I was around 5 years old. I don’t know what exactly happens in my dream, only that someone gets murdered. I run into the room and see a male figure laid on the floor, then I wake up crying and can’t get back to sleep. I have been having it a lot lately. What does this mean??

  • Emmie // Jan 2, 2012 at 12:42 pm

  • esma // Sep 22, 2011 at 11:22 am

    I have these dreams of people i never saw or met in my life, but I find their dead bodies and then rewind to when they were born. I remember their names, years they were born and died, and I live the victim’s life up to the point they die. I also see the whole murder. I feel it and I see the person who killed them. It is so real I wake up shaken up, trying to catch my breath!!! Am I insane??

  • Dreams dreams dreams... // Jul 27, 2011 at 3:52 am

    Most dreams can be answered under one topic; what were you watching on tv!? What were you doing on your phone or computer too.
    Let’s take femmefatal for example there. Their dream was about finding dead people. Maybe you find them in the walls? Did you recently remember watching the Haunting in Connecticut? those kind of movies stick in your mind longer than comedies. Maybe you were listening to keshas Cannibal, and you brain picked out the bit about geoffrey dahmer? What did he do with thE bodies of his victims? Maybe you researched a murder like the black dahlia and accidentally saw a crime scene picture? Anything can lead to finding bodies. Use your logic!!

  • Drake // Mar 2, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    I have had a most grotesque recurring dream. I am being chased in a morgue/asylum by a surgeon wielding a rusty, blood-caked bonesaw. I can not see his face, for he has small, circular reading glasses and a surgical mask obscuring his mouth. He seems to only manage a short, laboured waddle while I sprint, yet he keeps pace with me. I soon get to a point where while I am running, I slip on a barrel of spilt intestines. My killer comes upon me to end my existence, but I struggle. I snatch up a length of blood-slick intestine and begin to strangle him. I smile as I see his eyes roll back into his head and exhales his last breath. I have a feeling of accomplishment swell over me until I view my chest cavity, for the surgeon’s bonesaw had been plunged into my stomach during my moment of triumph. I whisper something, and I quickly wake up.

  • tired // Mar 1, 2011 at 3:19 am

    I’m in my room and I hear a banging on my door. Its my sister begging me to open the door. When I do, she’s bleeding heavily. I see my parents have been stabbed to death and a small child is dead too. The only thing I could think of to do was tell my sister to call 911 and I grabbed the other twin of the small child and escape. I’m outside the house with the baby in my arms, trying to call the police, but there is no answer. I think I saw the killer run down the street. He’s just a shadow. Then I woke up. I’m confused. The youngest person in my house is my teenage brother. I don’t know of any babies, much less twins. Wonder what it means…

  • Tefy // Feb 5, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Well. I’ve been having this dream were I am in my house and there is a serial killer after my family. He is never after me. But I am always protecting my family. I’ve only dreamed this dream, or remember, only 5 times. The reason I remember is because they are very exhausting. And it’s starting to scare me that I’ve been dreaming of it often lately.
    What does it mean?

  • Ashliegh // Jan 26, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    I keep having this dream where a Santa is in the driver’s seat of my mom’s car and me & my mom get in the back seat and he speeds off FAST. He tells us he’s taking us somewhere to kill us…

  • bhood // Jan 15, 2011 at 12:18 am

    I have recurring dream of being chased by an unknown killer, and no matter how far I run or where I go he’s always right there. The killer always murders someone I’m with and I just barely escape. These dreams feel as if they are passing by in real-time, and it sometimes feels like I’m actually physically tired from running so long. It feels like hours go by in these dreams. It almost feels like I’m awake. I can make decisions and react to what’s going on around me, but can’t control any of it. I have had this type of dream at least 2 dozen times over the last decade, and every time I wake up right when the killer catches up with me. Has anyone else had this kind of dream?

  • Holly // Jan 8, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    I keep having this dream where I bash someones head into cement until they die. Often they are people that mean me harm. Some are not. Afterwards I am very upset and feel remorse and tell someone in my dream. What does this mean?

  • Sam // Dec 23, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    I had this dream a couple of months ago but then another dream similar to it reminded me of it.
    The people from my dream were from my favorite show known as Fringe. In my first dream there is three Olivias and one Peter. It is a rainy night and the first Olivia is driving in a Jeep and she stops and looks. That is when I see the second Olivia and she is talking with Peter underneath a streetlight. Out of the blue a strange figure starts to form in the rain and it is the third Olivia and her face is filled with hurt and anger. No one can see her because she is transparent but out of anger she hits Peter. Each time she does Peter literally breaks his bones. Then morning arrives the police is around his broken body parts lying everywhere.
    The second dream there is two Olivias and one Peter. This time Peter was the first person I saw and he was in a light room. Suddenly two Olivias appear one of them is the real one and the other is fake. They were fighting when they got in the room. Peter holds up his gun not knowing who is who. Both Olivias as also hold up there guns one out of fear of being discovered and the other one out of fear of being innocently killed. Then everything goes black and all I am able to hear is a gun shot.
    I may have a clue to what both dreams are trying to tell me but I am a little bit unsure. It is really bothering me and I must know what it means.

  • Lost Thoights // Oct 28, 2010 at 8:06 am

    I had this dream a couple times… I’m on some island with friends (not always same friends), there is a killer amongst us, the first time its a girl and she kills some, knows that I know who she is, never kills me or attacks me, she dies at the end, turns out she was pretending to be the love of her life, who was in jail… he finds us, and kills her, hangs out amongst us, and then begins killing some friends, again he never attacks or kills me, he is more aggressive and is very happy and entertained when he is killing…

  • andee // Aug 22, 2010 at 5:22 am

    I had the first dream about a week ago. I walk up to this house and ring the bell, and this guy I’ve never seen before comes to the door and I strangle him, and leave him dead on his door step. I go into his house and sit in the kitchen and there is a really big bird like a peacock or something prancing around the kitchen, and my boyfriend is sitting at the table with me. When a police officer comes and starts asking questions, my boyfriend tries to lie but I admit to the murder and get arrested. In the dream I’m very calm and don’t seem that bothered about what I’ve done. This freaked me out at bit but then last night I dreamed that I drowned a girl in a lake. The scene was beautiful - it was really sunny and peaceful, and I knew that if I didn’t kill her she was going to kill me. When she stopped struggling and was dead I was sorry and sad but calm. I smoothed her hair down and lay her carefully on the bank then walked away. In my dreams I am completely calm, but when I wake up I’m a bit disturbed.

  • farmgirl // Aug 10, 2010 at 2:50 am

    Over a period of many years, I have had a number of dreams in which there are serial murders. In these dreams, I discover who the murderer is or actually witness one or more murders. The murderer knows that I know who he is and comes after me. I wake up startled and/or terrified.

  • becca // Jun 28, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    I dreamt that my lover asked me to stab him in the head. And I went through with it, screaming and crying. I was so scared when I woke up…

  • deepasleep // Jun 21, 2010 at 5:54 am

    Last night I dreamt that I was out of town and my exboyfriend was murdered. In my dream all of his close friends had been sleeping over at his house, but in different rooms upstairs. The murderer had painted his green walls blue and the common space, and then gone into his room and neatly chopped up his body, leaving a bloody star shape on his bedspread. In the morning all his friends had left when his older brother went to his room and found his body parts, or all but his head. It was completely unsolved. And in my dream I suspected everyone of being the killer except for his family. There were too many strange aspects, such as his friends not noticing and being untouched by the killer.

  • Hely // Jun 18, 2010 at 10:07 am

    My dream started about me and changed over time to be about a boy who looked like me, pretty much was me; this happens a lot.
    He found the people who murdered his family (his friend was with him), and ended up killing the two murderers before meeting more and me waking up.
    Very confusing.
    So, I have two murderers, and then my male self becomes a double-murderer, and it may or may not be my family who was murdered first.
    So confusing!

  • Honey // Mar 29, 2010 at 5:27 am

    This morning I dreamed about witnessing a murder in a bus. As I sat on the bus, a guy walked in a haste towards a girl who was sitting, he immediately started to kill her. He pulled her head up and killed her in her throath with a sharp tool. He put this tool 2 or 3 times through her throath. Her blood spread through her clothes and she was already dead by the second time when she got the tool trough her throath. Everyone on the bus got scared and shocked and so did I. My first thought was that we were held as hostages. As I saw that girl getting killed I started shaking very much (in my dream), I was scared that I could be the next one. I shaked so much that I woke up, shaking! I was so scared that in reality I was shaking too and this made me wake up. After being wake up I was thinking, maybe it wasn’t hostage, but he just wanted to kill that girl for a reason. It was 8.45 am and I was still sleepy, so I tried to go back to sleep. And I didn’t dreamed about that anymore.

    So I had a dream that I was friends w/ sex and the city person carria bradshaw, but I wasn’t present in my dream. She was there hosting for Big (her ex at the time though love her life once you see the whole series) and his present girlfriend who was pregnant. The weird thing was Carrie was so estatic to see his girlfriend pregnant. The all feel asleep together, Carrie was spooning his girlfriend and had her on her pregnant belly, and his girlfriend was spooning him. The weird this thing this all takes place in my parent’s bedroom, and they were sleeping in my parents bed. Somehow during the course of the night, Carrie and Big end up sleeping next to each other. Big tried to kiss Carrie but she pushes him away, affectionately–mad and happy at the same time. A little bit later, Big’s girlfriend starts having cramps which wakes her up, making everyone think she’s going to have a baby, but then she starts bleeding. She runs to my parent’s bathroom bleeding profusely, and Carrie’s screaming so distraught that she’s losing the baby. I show up out of no where and try to call 911. But the operator doesn’t seem alarmed or seem to care and she seems to be an automated operator. I try to so hard to communicate to her but she is taking so long to connect me, I start screaming and crying and banging the phone so upset that no one will help me. And that’s when I wake up.

    To make a long dream short me and a friend of mine were hangin out having a good time. We were walking around an unknown town to me. we came upon this vacant house and decided to go in. There was a person who I didn’t know tied up in a chair. A knife flew inside this room we were in and started cutting this person’s stomach up. Weird I know. But this dream is freakin me out.

  • Katak // Jun 3, 2009 at 2:01 am

    I had a dream that my mate was murdered. I didn’t see the murder happen but when I called his phone it said his headphones had been cut with a knife or sharp object and i knew he’d been murdered.. ? Also at the same time 3 of my friends had disappeared.

    I also had a dream that I murdered a girl but I have never seen this girl before and I keep picturing her face in my mind yelling at me.

    I woke up crying from the first dream and the second one has just disturbed me like crazy. I wonder what do they mean?

  • femmefatale // Feb 26, 2009 at 2:52 pm

    Lately I have been having dreams about finding dead people. What does this mean?
