The origin of dreams of being chased or attacked probably dates back to an era when humans fought off beasts or other tribal members to survive. The ‘monsters’ of today are more likely to be emotional beasts, such as fear, anxiety, anger, hatred and envy, or the pressures put upon us by the fast pace of life. In these dream scenarios you are often being pursued by some attacker who wants to hurt or possibly kill you.
