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.

It reminds me of that Unsolved Mysteries ep where the kids kept seeing an "evil witch" behind their closet.

She's likely to smack you in the shins with it before you can kick it out, but it's as good a plan as any :)

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 :)

I have relatives who like her and when your young it is pretty terrifying. Then you get older and learn about real monsters with pretty faces.

Oh now you've done it! The Hag has visited each and every person who has made this image a favorite :) Actually, I think it's a scary scenario because apparently you are completely paralyzed when you are in her presence. Thanks for the fav :)
