I agree, I have taken control of many dreams, although I find as soon as I realised what is happening I usually wake up. I read up on lucid dreaming a while ago, there are ways to develope the skill.
As for the "Evil" or feeling of doom described by the OP, you are reading way too much into it, I would say it should be obvious. You are PARALYZED, Theres not many (if any) people that wouldnt feel fear & dread if they woke to find they are completely paralyzed, nothing sinister or "evil" about it, you are reacting exactly the same as everyone else would in the same situation. (especialy if you just came from a scary dream, I find it alot easier to remember the "feeling" of a dream than the actual content, couple nightmare with paralysis and I know for a fact I would feel fear & dread)

I have a very long article I've been writing about his.. Hopefully I'll get it finished soon and will link it here for you.
As i've said in many SP threads, I have it very regularly (a several times a week in my younger days [10-15] and a few times a month now at 25). I honestly think the sense of evil is the fact that we are partly still under the influence of our dreaming mind despite being awake and that combined with the fact we are paralyzed triggers our instinctual fight or flight (but again, paralyzed so nothing we can do). The confused dream state coupled with this instinctive fear creates this effect i think. I always have the sense of someone/thing malevolent just outside of my field of vision or at my door always just about to enter. The thread i'm working on is the '___' connection. I should have it up by the end of the week. I'm working on it a little everyday after work.
