Science News - Night of the Crusher (The waking nightmare of sleep paralysis propels people into a spirit world)
As a college student in 1964, David J. Hufford met the dreaded Night Crusher. Exhausted from a bout of mononucleosis and studying for finals, Hufford retreated one December day to his rented, off-campus room and fell into a deep sleep. An hour later, he awoke with a start to the sound of the bedroom door creaking open—the same door he had locked and bolted before going to bed. Hufford then heard footsteps moving toward his bed and felt an evil presence. Terror gripped the young man, who couldn't move a muscle, his eyes plastered open in fright.

Most notable of them was when someone, a dark shadowy figure, was walking around the bed rubbing their hands together as in anticipation, looking at me but I couldn't make out the face in the shadows. Only that the features did not appear totally human. And there was an air of terrible foreboding.
