My guess is hypnogagia aka sleep paralysis. Look it up. It is the weirdest and freakiest thing that I have ever had happened to me. It is like your mind is awake but your body isn't. You feel awake but are basically paralyzed. But to make it even scarier you sometimes hallucinate when it happens. With me, it happens a lot when I sleep on my back. There have been times when I was sleeping in my room and I wake up and can see around the room and see my posters on the wall etc. everything the same as when I went to sleep, but then I will see people come in my room and start doing weird stuff like they are about to hurt me. I will try to wake up, or scream, but won't be able to. Most of the time I can barely wiggle a toe or my foot, and finally if I move it enough I will wake up and realize that nobody was in my room, it was all a hallucination. Anyways it is the scariest thing and thankfully it doesn't happen to me too often.

thats weird, i slept walk into my oldest sisters room like 8 or 9 years ago and was holding a knife just staring at her while she was sleeping. the only reason why i remember was that she woke up and ask me what was wrong, and i replied that i heard her son crying and walked out put the knife down on a table in the hallway and went to my room.
the next morning everyone was asking why there was a knife upstairs on the table and thats when i remember what happened. i never told anyone from my family what happen o.o

i also heard that its really bad to wake up people who sleep walk, not sure why tho :/
maybe its because some people freak out like crazy??

lucid dreaming
it can happen from not moving
or too much information eg new places new people books paintings
that kinda thing
now this is normal most lucid dreamers have nightmares
once you learn how to control this power it will be the best thing that happens to you
the way i learned to "fix" the nightmares is by pinching my self every 10mins an hour a day
also when looking at things REALLY look at them with all your strength take in every detail TRUST ME faces books street names ANYTHING
because to normal people
you can not read words in your sleep you understand what it is saying but you cant read read it letter for letter.
if you are serious about getting though it contact me

Okay this is not a strong topic of mine, and i don't know any fancy word for this sort of stuff but:

It is possible to enter a "dream world" but with realistic senses. You can make it happen again if you're really really tired, you just try keeping youself up while laying down, at a point you won't be able to tell if you're asleep or awake, this is when it starts to get weird. If you're in your dream, you'll be able to see everything as usual, execpt things like watches, TV's and so on, they'll be kind a ******* up (That's also a hint to know if you're dreaming). Sometimes you will be able to see yourself sleeping in the bed while you're walking around. While all this is happening, you'll have full aware of what you're doing, but you can't always control your actions, which can cause you to fall down stairs, not be able to walk straight and so on.

You can actually master stuff like this but it's hard, but as far as i'm concerned it's worth it. ( Please correct me if i'm wrong - As i said i really don't know much but find it a very interessting topic)

First, everything you see you remember, forgetting doesn't mean it's gone just that the recall to it is weak. IDK why this person is confused.

Second, I'm just learning this (becoming a shrink, but only a Senior), but it sounded like sleep walking episode and while they were waking up the elements of his senses were creating a dream.

I have been having these for about two years straight now. Lemme tell you it can get strange. I have hallucinated everything from bugs and snakes all over me (that i could feel btw), my room warping into a maze, as well as horrible, twisted creatures watching me like your episode, and everything in between. Turns out it was a symptom of my undiagnosed narcolepsy so there's that. But if you only have experienced this once it is, believe it or not, normal. If it becomes constant do get help. It's freaky though, isn't it?
