    Do scary movies give you bad dreams?

    Which ones? Why?

    Not really. I mean there may have been a few where it took me a lot longer than normal to go to sleep (Paranormal Activity and In the Mouth of Madness to name a few), but for the most part, I'm able to sleep like a baby after watching a horror film. tongue

    How about you? Do they give you bad dreams? If so, which ones?

      No. I only get them after watching O'Reilly and anything on the E channel.

    Not really.  The good ones keep you awake, and a rare few of those do that.

    They never used to.  But as I have gotten older, I find that whatever I watch before bed does tend to enter into my dreams - so I avoid scary movies before bed.

    I've never had nightmares or had trouble sleeping after watching scary movies.  In fact, they are some of my favorites to watch late at night.  However, I did get nightmares from scary books when I was younger.  The problem wasn't that the stories were so scary, it was that my stupid, evil brain kept thinking, "Yeah, that's bad, but what about....." and I'd end up thinking of things that were tons worse and scaring myself.
