A couple years ago, I had an extremely frightening episode of sleep paralysis. (in case you don't know what sleep paralysis is, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis ).
I woke up in the middle of the night one night, laying on my back with my arms sort of folded over my chest, and I was staring at the ceiling. I noticed that the room had a strange greenish glow, and the room felt very "dreamy". the next thing I noticed was that I could not move a muscle no matter how hard I tried. I sat there for about 10 seconds trying to move, when suddenly I felt a presence upstairs at the top of the steps (my room is in the basement right at the foot of the stairs). as soon as I felt the presence, I heard extremely loud footsteps go from the top of the steps all the way to the side of my bed in literally about a quarter of a second. Very fast. By this time I could move my head, and I looked over to see a creature that looked exactly like Venom from Spider Man, except its skin was totally pale and had no texture, and it didn't have a face. It then walked up to my bed, leaned over me, and made a sort of hissing noise. I turned away from it, since my head was the only thing I could move, and in the corner of my eye I saw its tongue come out and felt it lick my ear.
I don't remember what happened next, but the next thing I remember I was looking at my door (the creature was gone), and the greenish glow in the room changed to a dark blue glow. Suddenly, three dark figures walked into my room. They stood about 5 feet away from my bed for a few seconds, then they walked out. but before the last figure walked out, he stopped, looked back at me, then walked out and closed the door.
I laid in bed for a good minute after that trying to move, and I was finally able to move my finger, which broke me out of my paralysis. I sat up with a loud gasp and looked around my room. I don't know how I managed it, but I just went back to sleep.
The next morning I told my brother about it, and he said that he has had many episodes of sleep paralysis in which he saw dark figures, although I think dark figures are a very common theme in sleep paralysis.
