I like watching mostly action and love films but once in while a do watch a horror film and this does not affect my sleep but some friends say when they watch horror films, they can not sleep as they dream they're being haunted by and so they do not watch such films. What about you?

no i dont get nightmares from movies. i dont think ive ever seen a movie that was THAT scary. i have gotten some pretty weird dreams from a book though! lol when it does happen its usually one of my favorite authors and it usually only happens when i come across a book that is so good it has me awake for hours at night reading. not scary dreams, but they certainly had some of the same elements.

Sometimes if I watch really good movies, then it's not easy for me to fall asleep as I often think about the scenes. Also if I watch some really horrible movies, I am too scared to sleep alone:)

Yes, if it a boring movie, but fortunately i watch movies on TV so I can always change the channel and find something more interesting.

I love watching horror films, I'm always on the lookout for the next true horror film that affects my dreams. The last one I watched was the "Ringu", before that it was the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre". I'm amazed that some people actually have nightmares from other "scary" movies but .... to each his own.
