To start, I don't have nightmares that often, but when I do, it's always the same one (different variables, but definitely the same dream). I'm in a large place (like a church or a theater) with lots of doors, rooms, hallways, etc. Something really bad is chasing me. When I was a kid it was ghosts now it's like jack the ripper or something. I rarely get a good look at what's chasing me, but I know that I have to keep running or I'll get caught (because getting caught is the last thing you want to do). Here's where it gets weird. I run through these doors and hallways looking for a way out. When I hit a dead end I try to go back, either the door is locked so I have to go another way, or I go back through the same door I came through and it is an entirely new room. That's the weird thing. In my dream there is no going back. Either the door is locked or I'm going back to a different room. At one point in my dream I'm faced with an ultimatum: this door will get you out and the other one will keep you running in circles. I always choose the wrong one, and I always wake up before I find a way out. I wouldn't ask if it had been a random dream, but every time I have a nightmare it's this one. What do you think?
