Potential Nightmare-Causing Pranks

This time of year pranks seems to increase. The kind of pranks are ones that tap into someone's fear like creepy insects, violent or scary movie characters and more.

Could you imagine walking out on your porch and running into this giant spider?


Sometimes it doesn't take a huge bug or insect to give someone nightmares. Maybe it just takes seeing a small one in the most unexpected place.

What if your most feared movie character showed up inside your home?

Most Common Nightmares In Alabama

You know we had to find out what Alabamians were most afraid of right?!

After polling 1,500 Americans, the Mattress Advisor study came up with not only the most common nightmare in America but also found the most common nightmares in each state.

Georgia and Tennessee's most common nightmare surprisingly wasn't losing to Alabama.

Sleepless woman suffering from insomnia, sleep apnea or stress. Tired and exhausted lady. Headache or migraine. Awake in the middle of the night. Frustrated person with problem. Alarm clock.

Tennessee's most common nightmare was about monsters, and Georgia's most common nightmare was falling.

The Yellowhammer state's most common nightmare was missing an important event.

Seems like we're pretty responsible and considerate of others if that's what we fear the most.
