How to use "Nightmarish" in context?

When people think of nightmares, images of freakishly grimacing mannequins or bloodthirsty creatures bursting through the window may come to mind. Nightmares in general can be classified as intensely unsettling, often terrifying experiences that people commonly have during bad sleep. Nightmares can vary widely in their content, but one common theme is the activation of some fear response or memory buried deep in the subconscious. While nightmares can be easily remedied by simply admitting that you're scared and trying to relax, they can also have a debilitating effect on both the individual and their social lives.
