The stuff of nightmares! These bizarre beds are strange enough to intimidate even the deepest sleeper
- People around the world shared bizarre photos of ominous sleeping set ups

The last thing most need when dozing off for a peaceful night’s sleep is to be in a bed that’s straight out of a horror film, but that’s what some people have faced thanks to rather baffling bed designs.
Social media users from around the world have shared snaps of the most horrifying and puzzling beds around, with the best examples collated in a gallery by MyDiWise.
One snap shows a bed in the form of a huge stuffed teddy bear that looms menacingly over the sleeper, while another appears to float a foot off the ground.
Meanwhile, a box propped up with a stick in the form of an animal trap is someone’s sleeping situation, while another chooses a coffin for their temporary resting place
