The Creepiest Things People Have Ever Said in Their Sleep

Updated September 22, 2020 589.7k views18 items

Sleep-talking is one of the creepiest behaviors around. People say the weirdest things, and you have no idea if they know - or mean - what they're saying. Sometimes, it can feel like you're getting a little glimpse into a side of someone you've never seen, while other times it can feel like a completely different person has taken over the body of someone you know. These creepy stories from Reddit contain examples of real-life sleep-talking, and they're as strange as it gets. 

Some of them are straight out of creepy stories, while others are just super confusing. Especially the ones that happen halfway in between sleeping and waking, which seem to have an extra layer of weirdness about them, a mix of dreams and reality. If you know a sleep talker, you know how out there it can get. And if you've never slept next to a sleep talker, here's a look at the other side - and it's really damn creepy.

  • White Noise

    According to Reddit user u/rhamish

    "Last night as usual my partner fell asleep before I did and seemed to be sleeping away quite happily. After a while I rolled over and was about to fall asleep myself when out of the blue she rolled toward me and kind of whispered, 'It all goes white you know... white static and noise...' 

    Needless to say I almost sh*t my pants, mainly because of the creepy intonation, but also I had no f*cking idea what she was on about. In the end I just had to wake her to see if she could shed some light on it but sadly she didn't have a clue."

    • The Ones You Love

      According to this Redditor

      "My girlfriend once sat upright in the middle of the night, looked directly at me, and said, 'It will all disappear... just like the ones you love.'

      She went to sleep again right after that, but I was too freaked out to go back to sleep and ended up going on Reddit for several hours."

      • Strangers In The Corners

        Reddit user JamesOfTheYear said:

        "One of my mates has [bad dreams], one time we were [sleeping] on some couches, and I was just dozing off and he sits straight up and says, 'There are strangers in the corners,' and just lies back down slowly."

        • WTF

          Redditor Wachoooom​ said: ​​​​​​

          "My ex and I were napping on her couch once, and randomly I just wake up to being [attacked]...She had one hand on my windpipe and was giving me this half asleep 'devil-look.'

          I broke her grip and yelled, 'WHAT THE F*CK [NAME]?!'

          That broke her trance. She looked really confused for a bit. I had to explain what had just happened. She finally fell back asleep, but it took me a bit longer. F*cking surreal."
