as of Nov 1, 2010 Karissa was
and is one of my favorite characters here on newgrounds because she's an optimistic child. A small candle who shines in the darkness despite her misfortune
The nightmare is a symptom of the intense psychological trauma from the result of the death of her parents and their bodies being hung from the windmill by the real killer
Being as she's a young girl who is optimistic, imaginative and courageous she will eventually recover from such trauma despite the "nefarious times"
so Kudos the nightmare is eerie
