Day 19 - A horror movie that gives you nightmares
Lamb Chop in the Haunted Studio. I’m not joking. While I am not immune to nightmares, I can’t honestly recall any horror film being the source of them. Lamb Chop is the exception. I think I was five at the time.
There were probably other factors surrounding this particular nightmare (like this old videogame commercial with an old lady eating worms) that all coalesced together in a stew. Regardless, what I remember in the dream was Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop who might (I’m not sure) have been in the Haunted Studio. In this dream there was a portrait of a man who my mind identified as being “the guy with brains on his face” although I suppose it looked more like black worms were covering his face. He had bulging eyes and might have had a mustache or a beard. Despite being a portrait, he was speaking in a high voice going “WHOO! WHOO! WHOO!” In the dream, I was watching all of this on television and I was so scared that my dad had to carry me out of the room. On the wall in our house was — you guessed it — the same portrait of the guy with brains on his face. I might have woke up from this nightmare crying but I’m not sure.
So there you have it. Out of all the nightmares I’ve had in my life, this is really the only one that I’ve been able to remember with the most clarity. And it involved Lamb Chop.
