Day of the Dead

Ever have a really long, totally terrifying dream based on horror movie concepts?

I did last night/this morning. It was almost bad enough to not want to ever fall asleep again.

Basically if you saw the movie 28 days later that is essentially what I dreamt I was in the middle of, with some custom embelishments. A full bore "it's the end of the world, save yourself" themes — with gratuitous firearm usage.

I'm sure deep inside I have some kind of intense fear of being blocked in, being trapped and targeted by person's wanting to kill me and such. Anyone who was paying attention on Sept. 11, 2001 can relate I would guess.

Add in an irrational fear of the undead and being eaten alive (I grew up watching Day of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Comet et al.) and you have a long running narrative of pure terror and helplessness that I can't escape from.

I hate dreams like that.
