Does he need a night-light? Is it just too dark for him to find his way to you if he has a bad dream? If not, consider getting one.
If he does have a night-light, try to see if it is making some shadows out of the things in his room...with half light, some imagination and being half-awake, normal things can look scary to a kid.
I remember when I was little, the light shining off a poster stuck on the wall made shadows to look like a wolf. A dressing gown hanging on the door looked like a giant.
Try to see from his point of view and see if there are any issues. Also, try some calming music when he is falling asleep, make sure the TV is not on too loud (so that he can't hear the movie etc that might be on) Kids have overactive imaginations and it doesn't take much to create something bad.
