"Common images are bearded, goblin-like demons laughing or whispering sinister speech, a faceless girl (usually covering her face with hair, moving around in bed moaning and feeling my body), hands appearing from the wall and attempting to strangle me. A hung man talking in the corner of the room, and some of the most bizarre experiences may include up to a dozen 'critter' entities (think Gremlins movie) laughing and talking about me. The environment tends to feel like a holographic dollhouse, the experience peaks and then the hallucinations mysteriously vanish when I regain control of my body."

, a form of hypnagogia
and root of many folkloric figures such as succubi or incubi and the night hag

The video of German electrofunkmeister Michael Fakesch's On the Floor
(via Daily Motion) might make getting to sleep difficult.
But it's awesome, and the guy sounds like a younger, angrier Prince. [more inside]

"I'm having a little get together with some of my friends...."
I found this bizarre and disturbing little flash-movie a few months ago. The first link is actually the second
installment in what is now five episodes. There's more (including the first through the fifth) on his site.
The music is phenomenal- bits of spookiness from sigur ros
and aphex twin.
When you're all done, there's an interview with the author regarding Salad Fingers here
. People are still trying to figure out exactly who the character is and where he's from. If you look and listen carefully, there are literary references, anagrammed names, etc.
If you liked Salad, you might also like "Hell"
