Shadow people is a component of sleep paralysis, fyi. When the body is in REM, it paralyses motor control so you don't act out your dreams. If you wake up mentally before your body realises, you will remain paralysed for a short period. This is generally quite frightening and can present as tightness of chest, entities in the room, possibly even resting on your chest.
The paralysis can be escaped by simply breathing in rhythm, or wiggling fingers.
