This dream took place during the day, and part of this dream involved my dad’s truck being worked on in my parent’s yard by a tall thin somewhat dirty man with light-color skin with somewhat long dark blonde hair.
The Backrooms is about a cameraman who, after tripping and presumably getting knocked unconscious while working on what seems to be an independent film project, wakes up in a bizarre, seemingly inescapable and deserted building.
Confronted with endless corridors, empty rooms and hallways mostly illuminated by sickly yellow corporate lighting, the cameraman wanders aimlessly until he comes across a strange graffitied message on a wall: “Don’t move … Stay still,” he reads aloud.
Suddenly, a horrifying creature making an even more horrifying sound (think: a warped, nightmare version of the ’90s AOL dial-up tone) appears. It begins to stalk the cameraman room by room as he attempts to navigate a maze of hallways, stairs and liminal spaces that seem to lead nowhere.
The Backrooms appears to take place in the early ’90s.
All that I can remember of this dream is that I was walking around a very large multi-story multiple purpose windowless building with tall ceilings that was somewhat shopping mall-like with many types of businesses & other things like maybe an apartment & movie theater et cetera.
I remember walking along one of the upper floor hallways that had carpeted floors with some businesses along it, and in several areas there were a few monsters / creatures that would try to attack you.
This dream possibly took place in India, some people were trying to enter a semi-indoor / outdoor building one-at-a-time for a competition and / or work, but something kept hurting each person who tried to enter.
They possibly had to drag a few people from the building, they tried to figure out what was hurting them, and I stopped to help them.
The end of this dream took place inside a house-like building, I was protecting / babysitting / whatever some children, including some non-human humanoid children who were smaller than humans (I can not remember what they looked like though, and I can not remember if there were more than one species of them or not).
I assume that there must have been some kind of threat, I can not remember what though, I probably did not know the children & I probably found them by accident, but I can not remember; and at some point I needed to temporarily leave them alone.
