Why does my 5 year old have nightmares?

My daughter is 5 years old now and since she was 2 years old she's been having these nightmares and cries in the middle of the night. My husband or I comfort her and get her to calm down but she always has this look of fear on her face. I don't know why this happens as i don't allow them to watch creepy movies at all. The funny thing is though, when I ask her why she cried last night she doesn't remember that she did cry. It's like she's still sleeping but her eyes is open. Is there an explanation for this? It's getting me really worried. People are telling me it could be something psychological.
