The Hag by jhuertajr The Hag by jhuertajr
This illustration is based on the legend of the "Old Hag" who is purported to immobilize you while you are asleep and not allow you to breathe. I heard about this legend when I was a kid, and it terrified me.

Yeah, thought it would be kinda cheeky to throw that in there since Del Toro was involved.

Oh Goodness....this is freaky  >o<  
I think I know what this is about...People who try to Lucid Dream by making their body sleep while they're consciously awake sometimes say they have hallucinations. Along with that, the sleep paralysis that your body puts you in to keep you from acting out your dreams gives you that immobilized feeling as you hallucinate. 
That's actually why I'm afraid to try Lucid dreaming; I don't want to see these things... :iconscaredplz:

Don't be scared TheSimplenessOfLife, as it's been pointed out, Grandma's just looking for the can. I do agree that it would be terrifying to lucid dream and see something freakish. I get the same effect if I take too much Nyquil :)

you do? I just don't like those kind of things... :fear: 
But I guess I shouldn't be afraid, they're just illusions after all :shrug:
