Transfiguring Monster

I had a scary monster dream last night. But I was also aware, through the dream, that it was a monster from a movie, so I knew how to kill it, I just had to get it in the same position and go through the same motions. I kept thinking it was the cloverfield monster.

But upon waking, I realized it was not the Cloverfield monster because this monster could change between scary monster with crazy long killing tail and normal human man (and also upon waking I realized it looked nothing like the cloverfield monster....). He was extra scary because he could blend in with a crowd and then suddenly change, so we were always on the lookout for this one man, and I got very good at spotting him. I never actually saw him transform, but knew it was the same.

There was also something dinosaur-like about the monster because we knew that if we were right in front of him, but still he couldn't kill us. So we were running around a high school (in the gym there was a tree house in the middle of the floor, which we had somehow built and weren't letting anyone else into, until they pulled it down when the man walked into the room) and outside of the high school (where I saw him kill a bunch of men sitting on chairs in what looked like a Mexican Alley) and then my grandma's attic where I was trying to stuff myself into a trunk to hide. He killed a woman laying on bed, in the school, and for some reason that was why I was convinced that it was Cloverfield, because I had seen it before, but it really wasn't Cloverfield, so maybe I've had this dream before? Or maybe it's another movie I can't remember very well?

Anyway, it alternated between terrifying and completely not because I knew he was killable. I even saw the big red button on the wall that I knew I was supposed to push because that happened last time, but the people around me convinced me it wasn't time yet, and I was a little bit happy about that because I wasn't ready for it to end, and then finally I saw the woman who killed him in the previous dream/movie, so I knew that she would take care of it.

And then I woke up.

I love how you knew what was going to happen all along.
