12. "Perchance To Dream"
Not being able to go to sleep is rough. Not being able to go to sleep out of fear that you'll die? Infinitely worse. In "Perchance To Dream" (which has long been rumored to have served as an inspiration for A Nightmare on Elm Street), we're introduced to Edward Hall (Richard Conte), a man with a severe heart condition that can't take any shocks. He reveals to his psychiatrist that he dreads going to sleep because of an eerie recurring nightmare he has in which a mysterious woman tries to scare him to death at a carnival. Though we certainly wouldn't mind getting familiar with the funhouse hottie haunting his dreams, knowing what we know, we'd probably have chosen our therapist a little more wisely.
