For a few years now, a collection of strange stories about black eyed kids has been bouncing around the Internet via paranormal forums and supernatural chat rooms. These stories have a single originating point–a creepy experience reported by journalist Brian Bethel on January 16, 1998. Brian claims he was approached in his car by two children whose eyes were all black, meaning there was no white in their corneas. These children insisted Brian let them into his parked car, claiming they needed a ride to a telephone.
Brian claims he was overcome with a feeling of sheer panic, as though he were being hunted by a sinister predator. The more fearful he became the more insistent the kids became that he let them them in.
This , reported by dozens of others: a woman who lives alone, who claims two kids knocked on her door at 11 PM demanding she let them in to use her restroom; a soldier alone in a Marines barracks, who found his courage under fire when two BEKs knocked at his door in the middle of the night; a lone camper, who claims he spent all night huddled in his tent terrified after two black eyed children randomly appeared in the woods and insisted he let them inside his tent.
The similarities in all the stories are as follows:
~It's always two kids at night.
~They always have completely jet black eyes.
~The kids seem unnatural and almost alien in disposition.
~The kids repeatedly ask to be let inside, growing more and more hostile throughout the encounter.
The way we see it, there are three over-arching explanations for this phenomenon: paranormal, hoax, and cult.
