A study of 2,000 Brits has revealed the ten scary movies which people say have given them nightmares after watching them before heading to bed. It also emerged some have been left so scared by a movie before bed, they have resorted to sleeping with the light on.
Sally Hotchin, Brand Manager from Slumberdown, which commissioned the research, said "often, what you see, hear or do before going to bed can affect what you end up dreaming about and affect your quality of sleep. But this is bad news if you watch something which is a little on the scary or even gruesome side before you turn in for bed."
"Try getting stuck into a good book before bed to help you sleep, as not only will this help you get a better night's sleep, but studies have shown that overall memory improves if you learn right before falling asleep."
It doesn’t help either that scary movies are favourite staples during sleepovers. Teenagers and young adults love having fun dressed up in their Kigurumi.co animal onesies to start off their sleepover activities and then gravitate to watching horror flicks later into the night.
Over a quarter of those polled admitted that they ended up sleeping with the light on because they can't face the dark after a scary viewing session and almost half have even resorted to watching a kids' TV show or something light-hearted to calm them down before finally switching off for the night.
