With the sheer prevalence of social media and modern technology in every facet of daily life, it's not surprising that some classic nightmares have modern versions with technological twists.

Thanks to the hilarious jokesters at CollegeHumor, we're given versions of classic nightmares involving such horrifying events like falling phones instead of falling yourself, losing followers on twitter instead of losing teeth and appendages, and accidentally sending a naked picture instead of showing up naked at an exam. As any Internet addict can attest, having the Internet connection go down can sometimes seem like a fate worse than death, even death brought on by a giant, flame-breathing, assault-rifle-wielding, purple grizzly bear.

These great classic nightmares were illustrated and conceived by artist Caldwell Turner. Stats for Modernized Nightmare Depictions Trending: Older & Chilly
