I'm currently reading The Demon Haunted World by Carl Sagan, and he spends a lot of time talking about sleep paralysis as an explanation for a lot of paranormal phenomena, including alien abduction. It's pretty interesting.
Once, I had a sleep paralysis experience in which I saw a green and black fog appear next to my bed, develop vague facial features, and stare down at me for a while. When I was finally able to move, of course it disappeared. I'm very glad that I live in a time when there is a scientific explanation for this kind of stuff, rather than demons etc.
I've actually had sleep paralysis experiences throughout my life. Probably around 10 total experiences I can remember. The smoke creature is actually a strangely common one, I'm not sure why but I hear that one a lot.
I've had a weird white demon, a melting baby, my dad who was actually at work standing in my doorway, my heater talking to me followed by a ufo out my window and my roommate walking into my room and running into my bed like a computer character with its walk cycle stuck on and rambling incoherently.
I dunno why they're usually negative and often with paranormal entities. Even though I know what they are now they still freak me out after all these years.
Oh and cool short.
I've had a few others, but usually nothing odd happens and I just lie there waiting until I can move again so I can take a deep breath, roll over, and go back to sleep. I've seen hazy shapes and shadows that a less skeptical person would describe as 'ghosts', but the fog is the one I remember the best and most vividly.
