Has this arrived totally out of the blue ? Or are these themes you think about, read about, maybe have seen some films about ? We have a great many dreams ( as shown by EEG, etc. ) which we never recall, unless we are woken up by someone or unless we wake up, for instance in an arousing and frightening dream.
I hadn't noticed different kinds of goosebumps !
And you also seem to be describing something very normal but alarming, a form of sleep paralysis. Because our bodies automatically shut down our voluntary movement when we are in dreaming sleep ( when they don't, we get slep-walking, etc. ) sometimes we wake up just before it has got switched back on again, and hence that short ( though it may feel much longer, as it's alarming )sensation of being awake and unable to move.
These dreams, though unpleasant, are probably either meaningless ( though of course it's tempting to seek a meaning ) or just related to being stressed and worried, maybe coloured by recalling without realizing this, themes you've seen in movies or on TV
