A terrifying dream, and experience, that my parents had been kidnapped or killed by the alien from This Island Earth or something like it (think the alien which does the news in Futurama maybe), when I woke up I discovered my parents were out and we were being babysat but I honestly believed that discovering their bed unoccuppied that my dream had been reality.
Yes I find it especially disheartening when a nightmare merges into reality [at or near after the wakening]. I call it the "Freddy Kruger effect".

I've had tons of nightmares when I was a kid where my house would go on fire. Frequently had childhood dreams where I couldn't talk either.
Oh man I remember those!! The not being able to talk one or the babel ones in which you cant get others to understand or its like you're speaking another language. I tell you what when I actually heard the Tower of Babel story when I was in my late teens and a friend of mine who was essentially becoming a skeptic and finding out the maddest stories from the bible he could to test sunday school teachers with related it to me I could just think about how terrible that would be, to suddenly be incomprehensible to others.

I had a similar dream to that concept. The only childhood dream I can remember where my parents had to make me feel better afterwards. In the dream, they were taking me out of preschool, and I was trying to tell them not to, and they acted as if I wasn't there, as if they couldn't hear me. I tried and tried to talk to them and nothing worked.
Also, I had a pretty entertaining one that involved single-handedly saving a group of my friends from being boiled in a cauldron by a witch. I was five.
OK so I read a lot about the Nazis from 8-10 so.....
I had a recurring nightmare where Hitler decapitated me with an axe.
I had a lot of dreams where people murdered me because I was scarred from a Reader's Digest article... possibly about BTK?
