I would say a night terror.  My dd would wake up like that too and cry uncontrollably and it would take awhile to calm her down.  I don't think she was actually awake though even with her eyes open, I don't know it was weird.  I would just do the best I could to calm her down and get her back to sleep.  My oldest did it a lot for awhile, I think it stopped (so far) when she was 3. My youngest has never done it though.

I wouldn't go so far as to say night terror. Everyone has bad dreams though. I literally just came back downstairs from calming my distraught STB 3 year old. He was crying pretty much screaming, scared and shaky. It happens.
