Black Eyed Kids: Insidious Threat or Myth in the Making?

It’s late, it’s dark and you’re in the middle of nowhere. Perhaps you’re walking down a lonely stretch of moonlit road, maybe you’re in a desolate parking lot trying to get your car started or perhaps you’re nestled in the warmth of your own home reading yourself to sleep; whatever the circumstance, you find yourself in an isolated locale when you’re suddenly startled by a sharp knock at the door or window. You look up from your steering wheel or cautiously pull back the curtain to see… wait for it… a pair of thin, trendily dressed, usually olive skinned teenagers.

Sounds pretty anti-climatic, right? But just wait; these aren’t your average, ordinary scallywags. These adolescents have something horribly wrong with them — something almost none of the witnesses notice at first glance — it’s their eyes. These “creatures” have no white corneas, no colorful irises, just a pair of big, black, shark-like eyes that inspire abject horror in all who have claimed to have seen them.

What’s worse is that these bizarre younglings aren’t content to scare you and continue on their merry way; no they are insistent that you help them. They stare through you with those dull ebony orbs and demand you let them in your car and give them a ride home or that they be allowed into your house to use your phone. The most horrifying aspect of all of this is that those who claim to have encountered these sinister kids swear that they’ve had to actively resist the temptation to do their bidding, as if their voices carried some sort of hypnotic influence.

ORIGIN OF A LEGEND

Stories of Black Eyed Kids — or BEKs as they were swiftly dubbed — have been popping up all over the internet for over a decade, but have yet to achieve any real pop culture notoriety… you’ll know when that happens as soon as you start seeing commercials for a Wes Craven’s or Eli Roth’s new movie based on the “horrifying, real-life phenomena!”

This strange trend was first reported by journalist Brian Bethel on January 16, 1998. According to Bethel, two boys approached him while he was sitting in his parked car. Bethel described the kids in prototypical BEK fashion as stylish, olive skinned kids. The boys asked for a ride home explaining that they were on their way to the movies, but had forgotten their money.

Bethel claimed that he was overwhelmed by a “fight-or-flight” response, but was nevertheless tempted to allow the boys entrance into the vehicle. He resisted the urge, which seemed to only agitate the boys, who grew ever more adamant that they be allowed into the car. It was then that Bethel finally noticed their “coal black” eyes, whereupon he was momentarily paralyzed with fear.

The black-eyed beings seemed to realize that their window of opportunity was closing and their demands reached a fever pitch, at which point Bethel collected himself and promptly exited the scene. Thus began the “official” saga of the BEKs.

THE PHENOMENON GAINS GROUND

As is evident to anyone who’s ever roasted marshmallows in front of an open flame, tales of BEKs have a lot of the characteristics of a classic campfire story. In fact, one of the most harrowing accounts I’ve come across concerns a man who decided to ignore years of cinematic warnings issued by scores of horror films and go camping alone. This unlucky fellow first encountered a pair of BEKs in an empty men’s room and then foolishly decided to sleep unaccompanied in his tent next to a lonely lake some miles away.

According to his chilling tale, these kids managed to track him to his tent where they spent the better part of the night begging to be let in from the cold. The man spent a sleepless night in the center of his tent doing his best to ignore their pleas for shelter, all the while convinced that any second they were going to burst in on him and end his life. As dawn broke, the chap was relieved to discover that he was once again on his own. He packed frenziedly and left posthaste, vowing to never camp on his own again.

Another of the numerous accounts of BEK encounters concerned a woman named “Adele” who was in the relative safety of her home when she had a harrowing experience with BEKs. She described the encounter thusly:

“I was sitting in my bedroom reading a book, when at about 11:00 p.m. I heard a knocking… a slow, constant one. I got up out of bed to see what it was. I looked out of the window and to my surprise saw two children. I opened the window and asked them what they wanted at this time of night. They replied by saying simply, ‘Let us in’. I said no and asked what for. ‘We want to use your bathroom’.”

 

“I was quite shocked that children of about 10 years-old wanted to use a stranger’s bathroom at this time of night. I told them no, closed the window, but looked at them through the glass. I glanced at their eyes… and I have never ever seen eyes like them. They were black, completely black. I got the feeling of evil and unhappiness. It surrounded me. It was horrible.”

As if that weren’t creepy enough, apparently military security is no obstacle for these entities as one Marine who was stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina can attest. The Marine was up late watching a movie in the infantry barracks where he lived in November of 2009. Being the weekend, all of his cohorts were either out drinking or asleep, and when he heard a knock at his door he assumed it was merely his roommate who had a habit of forgetting his keys.

When he opened the door the young Marine would receive the shock of his life, for it was not his buddy standing in the walkway, but a pair of BEKs. The Marine insisted that his first instinct was to slam the door and lock it, but he was unable to do so. He described the experience in vivid detail:

“I couldn’t take my eyes of their pitch-black eyes; it was like they were sucking me in. I felt horrible and was suddenly frightened for my life, like I needed to immediately take cover. They just stared at me, with those goddamn eyes.”

 

“I took a quick look up and down the walkway to see if any other Marines were out, but there was nobody in site. I turned back to the kids who I noticed had taken a step forward toward me. I got the feeling like I was being hunted, like these kids where predators and out for their next meal or something. Instinct gave way to reason and I decided to listen to that voice and shut the door and locked it.”

It would seem that even other children are not immune to contact from these entities and — if this report is to be believed — they are even willing to get physical with those who are ostensibly their own age. This alarming account was posted online by a 16-year old boy who had a run in with a pair of BEKs outside of his home. In his own words — typos and all:

“I was skateboarding at around 10:30 last night and i had stopped to take a rest when i was approached by two kids one with blonde hair and a baseball cap pointed and a skateboard painted all black on the bottom and the other slightly less intimitdating as he look to be around 8 he had blonde hair also and was wearing a spiderman shirt the older one spoke to me as i had my head hanging low.”

 

“Hey, kid can you help us were lost we need to use a phone can you take us to your house?” I looked up at them and immediatly felt Dread and dispair i stood up quickly sensing something was wrong ” Uh, you can use my cellphone if you want” the older kid seemed annoyed then and look me in the eyes it was then that i noticed they were black all black not in white i could see ” Hey cool contacts where did you get them” i asked.”

 

“There not Contacts” he said flatly ” Yea well sorry i couldn’t help you guys out but im going inside” i turned around and started to ride but somehow the older kid caught up with me and grabbed my sholder ” YOU will let us use your phone WE NEED TO GO INSIDE BUT WE CAN”T IF YOU DON”T TAKE US TO YOUR HOUSE” it was at this point i hit him in the face and ran up the stairs to my house and shook for hours later when i was on the computer i looked outside my window and the kids were staring at the window i told my mother and of course she didn’t belive me.”

This is the first encounter I’ve heard of where there was physical contact between a BEK and a human being. Does this represent a trend of increasing physical violence that these creatures will employ to get their way or is it merely a case of a weaker individual getting bullied by an unknown entity? Perhaps only time will tell.

These cases and scores of others have been reported from all across the globe with very few variances. Some neglect the olive skin, while other reports state that the BEKs were dressed in fashionable clothes of another period rather than contemporary trends. Most of these cases involve a pair of boys, but there are also reports of adult women and even one bizarre account by an elderly couple concerning group of black-eyed teens that pulled in front of their house in a new van. While a pair of BEKs attempted to gain access to their home they noticed that the rest of them were walk a dachshund in front of their house. Needless to say these cases represent the exceptions and not the rule.

So presupposing this phenomenon is not only real, but increasing in frequency we are forced to ask the most basic question…

WHAT THE HECK ARE THESE THINGS?

This query is as fascinating as it is frustrating, as it would seem that BEKs dwell in that nebulous void between demonology, ufology, cryptozoology and the plain old paranormal. This is a dark and perplexing realm wherein the most eccentric entities — such as the New Jersey Devil or Point Pleasant’s Mothman among others — are said to exist, carving their own unique niches in these distinctly different disciplines.

As BEKs seem to virtually materialize out of thin air there is very little evidence suggesting a point of origin. This, of course, has done nothing to prevent the volumes of speculation which has run rampant across the internet. The theories run the gamut from the barely credible to the utterly inconceivable, but perhaps the most peculiar — yet somehow logical — hypothesis is that these creatures are in fact…

VAMPIRES

Having yielded a better part of my misspent youth to monster flicks such as “The Lost Boys” and televisions shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” I have to admit that there is a certain horrible appeal to the notion that fashionable, charismatic vampires may be stalking our streets.

To begin with the bulk of BEK encounters consist of youthful, usually dapper young men who employ hypnotic voices and mesmerizing black eyes to try and coerce their “victims” into doing their bidding. Secondly, these beings have displayed an evident inability to enter someone’s property without first being invited. It’s difficult to argue that these attributes aren’t vampire-like.

Still, as scores of scholars have noted in the past half-century, the concept of the seductive, chic, trance inducing vampire is more the product of modern fiction than ancient legend. Traditionally speaking vampires are not young and suave Edward Cullen types, but bestial creatures that look like bloated corpses with blood slathered maws.

While, to date, attempted blood consumption has not figured into any reported BEK encounters, it bears noting that there is not a single account from anyone who has succumbed to the demands of these black-eyed beings and actually allowed them into their home, car or tent. When speculating as to why this is, it is difficult not to assume the worst… there is a real possibility that exsanguination may play into the ultimate fates of those who indulge these creatures, but that, of course, is pure conjecture.

So, assuming we’re not dealing with vampires, then how about the equally outlandish possibility that these entities may be…

HUMAN/ALIEN HYBRIDS

The scant bit of evidence that suggests that BEKs might be a the result of a strange synthesis of human and extraterrestrial DNA comes not from any reported UFOs seen at the sites of BEK encounters — which, as far as I know, has never happened — but from the vague reference some female alien abductees have had toward encountering half-human, half-Grey alien babies that were allegedly created utilizing their unfertilized eggs, which were extracted from them during the diminutive extraterrestrials’ notoriously invasive examinations.

More than a few of these unfortunate women have claimed to come into contact with humanoid babies,which they described as having olive shaded skin and jet-black, almond shaped eyes. Frankly, this wild supposition offers barely enough data to even call it a theory, but a more plausible explanation might be that BEKs are actually…

LOST SOULS

While some might be tempted to think that BEKs are merely the lost spirits of departed children who are sorrowfully wandering the Earth seeking help from adults, it should be noted that in each and every case the eyewitnesses have claimed to have felt an almost overpowering rush of fear when they came into contact with these beings. It’s as if they instinctively knew that they were not dealing with harmless children, but dangerous predators in disguise.

Admittedly “gut instinct” is not easy to classify as evidence, but the universality of this feeling in those who come across BEKs makes it difficult to dismiss. I also find it hard to believe that lost children — be they alive or dead — would consistently inspire such terror in adults. Wandering spirits may not be the answer in this case, but that leaves open the alternate paranormal possibility that these beings might just be…

DEMONS IN DISGUISE

Like the existence of Noah’s Ark or the stone tablets that Moses retrieved from the peak of Mount Sinai, belief in demons is a matter of faith. If one is predisposed to believing in the existence of angelic or demonic entities, then one would be hard pressed not to consider the fact that BEKs might be old fashioned, shape shifting critters from the bowels of hell.

This theory is no more or less reasonable than any other, in fact, when one considers the permeating aura of evil given off by BEKs it becomes downright plausible. Of course, if these are demons in the guise of young humans, one must wonder why they aren’t plying their nefarious charm rather than employing palpably eerie personas like the ones described. Still there’s no telling what goes on in the mind of a devilish denizen of Hades. Of course, assuming that none of the above options prove to be of merit, there is always the possibility that this whole darn thing is nothing but a…

HOAX?

Author Barry Napier — who has reported on this phenomenon — has made the valid point that while the internet is an invaluable tool for the distribution of information, it is also an easily abused medium for the transference of hearsay, rumors and outright lies:

“The internet has made it so that it is much easier to stay up to date with paranormal events. Sadly, it has also made it easier for people to spread many false claims and hoaxes. Because of this, it is difficult to tell when someone is contributing to a lie that has already fooled many readers or if the account is truthful.”

 

“One such phenomena is the growing number of stories regarding so-called Black Eyed Kids. The stories certainly reek of an almost mythological stench, but there are so many similar accounts that it is hard to look past. The events have been quietly gaining momentum in forums and paranormal websites, so quiet that many people are still not familiar with them. The Black Eyed Kids reports are scattered around the internet and chances are that a great deal of them are fabrications derived from the first reported accounts.”

This is a very real possibility. As we all know every genuine paranormal event is riddled by scores of pranks and copycat reports. It is, as they say, par for course, but that does not mean that the genesis of this phenomenon is not authentic. It simply means that investigators need to be all the more cautious when separating the truth from the exaggerations or outright fabrications.

CONCLUSION

Well, there really isn’t any conclusion. There are just too many “X” factors involved at this point. But whether BEKs are ghosts, vampires, demons, half-aliens, internet hoaxsters or prank prone teens with black contacts, anthropologists and folklorists should take note as this marks one of the few times in recorded history when a legend can be traced to a specific time, place and individual.

Whether or not this phenomenon proves to be true — and, like most of its ilk, the evidence will likely never confirm any solid conclusions — stories of BEKs will remain a fascinating and frightening addition to the hallowed halls of Fortean research and will no doubt send chills up the spines of children for generations to come.

I’ll admit that I’m still a skeptic in regards to the whole BEK phenomenon — it’s s too “loose” and has all the earmarks of an urban legend — but if I ever do bump into one of these “things” you can bet that I will not squander a single breath inquiring as to where it came from, but will employee every ounce of energy I’ve got to getting the hell out of there… and if any of you ever run into one of these mysterious misanthropes, tread very carefully and keep your wits about you — your life may depend on it.

    @intothe unknown,where did you get that pile of trash? the devil can always be removed no matter the severity of the possessed,we were not made in the falseness of the devil,therefore his spirit is subject to GOD at all times! the fact is most people don’t know how to rebuke the devil and bind&cast his spirit out,or have so little faith in GOD that they are easily manipulated and like empty cups waiting to be filled with either good or evil.and also the devil cannot reincarnate because he is not dead and was never physically alive,as the meaning of RE-incarnation means to have been here at one point and died and then came back as someone else.plus children specially are easier to remove evil from because they are born,innocent! and GOD knows this.

    I don’t know what to make of these creatures, its all very scary and most people dont really pay attention to whats going on around them to notice the details. If these things really exist and the all consuming fear that exudes from them mixed with possible psychic abilities, we could be in for a change that will modify everything that we understand. I need to learn more about these creatures regardless.

  • Siraa

    All these accounts seem to be of people relatively alone (which contributes to hoax-iness) but I’m almost positive I saw one of these at my school.

  • Bnutz32

    I have had a account like this but I was with two other people who witnessed it and felt the same way. Not only did I encounter the teens once but twice in two seperate locations on the opposite sides of the city. In both accounts I can still feel the terror that rushed through my body and one of the ladies I was with on the first account is currently seeking professional help for the feelings of fear and dread she continues to experience. I am not sure what it is or what causes it but it is certainly terrifying and I hope to not have another experience.

    I know what they want and it’s not blood. They take away our life force. The scariest thing about them is not their eyes or their ability to “walk through walls” but their ability to enter and shape dreams as well. I have been attacked and kept in a paralyzed state while I sleep,  unable to wake from the “dreamworld” they are undoubtedly creating. My first encounter was when I believed I was pregnant. I had a dream in where I met my daughter. She even gave me her name, Noreen. <—I would never name my daughter that but like I told my husband, "She kinda named herself babe" In this dream everything was fine, but I do recall when either me, my son, or my husband would put her down she would stretch her arms up and want to be held again immediately. But like I said, I thought I was pregnant at the time and that she was my daughter. She had very pale sometimes almost gray skin, jet black shiny hair and eyes that were bottomless pits of black. Fast forward to a few months later, when I was certain I was NOT pregnant, she appeared again. SAME CHILD. I remember I even mentioned out loud Oh hey, you're back. She jumped into my arms and wrapped her legs around my waste. I held her for a few moments and then something, possibly the fact that I had my monthly and was in fact not pregnant, happened and I shook off the "spell" and said "You're not my daughter" set her down and walked out of the house. The whole time she was screaming "Mommy mommy don't leave me" Suddenly I am in my bed on my face down on my stomach. My eyes are open but I can't move. I feel something pressing on my back. Only calling on the name of Jesus got it off. Another time it appeared as a woman on the opposite side of a lake. I was yelling "Hey don't do it. Don't jump" And the pale bluish gray woman with black hair and black eyes smiles at me then jumps. I jump in after her. I pull her to safety. And she looks like she's been dead for days. Her pale skin is sluffing off her bones. I know she was just alive so I force myslef to give her mouth to mouth. It's like I have to try to save her. I kept telling myself what will you do if she dies and it's all your fault. SO I DO IT. The instant my mouth touched hers to revive her it was like all time and space stopped and I was nowhere but everywhere and nothing but everything. I was me, she was her, but we were one??? The most recent encounter happened in my new apartment about a year ago. In this "other world"I was on a bus cross country and met a man on one of the layovers. He was PERFECT. Olive skin with shiny jet black hair and those big BLACK eyes. He would hug me and I felt an infinite love coming through my chest where his chest touched mine. He would hold the hug for a few moments then let me go and walk away. I would serch the bus stations endlessly for him, just trying to get him to hug me again. Soon we were even traveling on different buses but at every bus station, he'd be there. Like he was there FOR me but couldn't let me know that he wanted me too. My entire exsitance became chasing this ghost of a man who had the keys to my happiness in his chest. Lol, I know. But then I began to notice that everytime I would find him again, he was older, balder, or just hideously scary looking but I needed my fix. That hug. Till I snapped out of it and was paralyzed in my recliner and whatever it was was still in my house. I could feel it but couldn't open my eyes until I called on the name of Jesus. I know this sounds far fetched but these are my true experiences with these black eyed demons. Crazy, I know but I have never had a problem with nightmares. I am the type of person who can fly in my dreams. I am aware of my dream state and can manipulate my dreams to my liking and have swam with great whites and soared the night skies. These were not dreams but more like a movie I was unable to escape. I don't know how to explain it but that was the 4th time one of these black eyed creatures used my human nature against me. They want something we have and will go to extreme lengths to get it but you have to be a willing participant. You have to give it away like the monkey meat sack whores they see us as.

  • Talks with the Wind

    When i first heard about these kids i was instantly intrigued and asking my mom, who has a large amount of stories of paranormal encounters (as it runs in my family), if she had ever encountered one. she said yes. and i continued to ask her about her experience and so she told me her story. she said that she was about sixteen years old walking downtown Santa Fe, NM when she saw a kid maybe about her age across the street who had “clear olive skin like a porcalin doll and dark eyes” she crossed the street to find out more as she is a curious soul, and asked him to see his eyes. “He said, “Yeah.” and leaned down towards me so i could see his eyes. i wasn’t scared, only intrigued but i could feel him looking deep inside me. he was pretty. clear skin and a thin upper lip, but his lips were defined at the same time. i could barely see any white, but in his black eyes i could faintly see his pupil moving.” When she was done then they both went on their way. he never asked her for anything and never seemed evil. i asked how they target people but she was entirely unsure and said that like every other experience with something or someone inhuman, never let them into your house.

  • Micky21098

    After watching some shows, I don’t think the reptilian shape shifter idea is crazy, but I don’t think BEKs are them 

  • Micky21098

    She brought me here too, and now I’m super interested in this topic.

  • Tegan

    I NEVER want to run into one of these i already feel froze with fear i wud probably be mentally unstable if i ever saw one

    Can they get into your dreams? My sophomore year in high school i had the weirdest dream and then about month later I had another.
    The first dream:
    I was standing on the ledge of a cliff over looking trees. (i live in New England) It was fall time so all the leaves were orange and what not. I felt like I was leaving somewhere and like saying goodbye or something (weird i know) And then I thought I heard my mother calling my name in the background, So i turned around to go home and there was a man standing there in a complete black suit. His skin was very pale, he was bald and his eyes were oil black. It didn’t seem like he was staring at me, it looked like he was staring out over the ledge, so I tried going around him but as soon as i got his side he grabbed me and hissed,( his teeth were jagged) and then he jumped off the cliff. Everything went black and I woke up.
    (not long after, my friend was telling me how she saw a pale man in her back yard by her wood pile during winter time, i guess she freaked out and told her step dad and he went out there after him but there was no one not even foot prints, then weeks later their neighbors called them and told them there was a man standing out there and didnt know whether he was supposed to be there or not. – my friend and i live on the same street)

    Dream two:
    I was in the woods again and this little girl was running away from me and hiding behind trees and laughing and kept saying “Come find me, come find me!” And i when i realized her eyes were all black i tried turning away but she was standing behind me and she looked thoroughly pissed off and her voice completely changed and she said, “Play with me!” I got so scared in my dream that i woke up.

    The only dreams that i have ever had that has woken me up like that is those ones that feel like you falling, these are different. I’ve been seeing ghost on and off since I was 4 though so who knows, it could just because of that, or I have a vivid imagination. Either way every time i think about it i cant shake the feeling.

    Well I certainly have an obsession with paranormal stuff but I always think it is good to think logically too. I have experienced some stuff as well as some of my family members but, I always say it’s all in the mind. Maybe it’s just to comfort myself. I man I’m definitely not ruling out these paranormal activities but I always tend to question everything. Then again how is it possible for more than one person to see the same thing and I’m not talking about things read on the internet but you know from personal experience and from stories gathered. I tend to pester my family and relatives for scary stories.

    The thing with the internet is that you can basically do anything which includes fabricating stories for some sort of entertainment so it’s hard pinpoint the truth from the lies. It’s like the boy who cried wolf eventually people will stop believing these stories altogether. It’s like aliens there have been supposed sightings that most people have stopped believing altogether but, then if one day someone really saw an alien or UFO basically no one would take it serious.

    I’m just saying humans like entertainment and unfortunately fabricating stories seems to be one of the remedies. I find the whole concept of BEKS though quite interesting hence why I’m researching the topic. I have had no such encounter and I know no one who did. I live in Trinidad and I don’t think anyone knows about this phenomenon excluding the minority such as myself. I only heard of it from two of my brothers because my family tends to read a lot and are kind of weird and likes weird stuff. First time I heard it I was very scared. Though I think the story my youngest brother told me was a lie lol. Never heard of it in my little research.

    He said that this woman was walking home one night when she heard a baby cry. She followed the sound and came across a baby wrapped in a bundle. When she was about to hold the baby she noticed that the kids eye was completely black. She then ran when she heard something shuffling in the trees above, like something was following her. She then heard something laughing in the trees sounding like a babies voice. The only story that I’ve heard of that he told me was the one when the woman was in her home.

    ANYWAY THANKS FOR READING!!!!!!

    The other night I had a dream of one of these black eyed being. In the dream I was working in a shoppe store (the era seemed back in time though) I went to greet the customers that entered the store. A man about in his thirties entered the store with his back to me, so I went around him to ask if I could help him. He was with two other men about his age. As I faced the man I noticed his face, it was grayish and had bloodless wounds on the side of right his forehead and with the pupil filled black eyes. As I looked into the mans eyes I knew no fear at all within me, i seemed to have a curious compassion towards the man when I looked into his eyes, thats when he picked me up and held me closer to his eyes, as he did I could here screaming from his eyes yet I had no fear within me from this. That when I woke up from the dream of this black eyed being. What I knew when I woke up was that this man was double my side like a gaint to my self. And what i also knew apon waking is that the black eyed being used fear to sense its surrounding like a bat uses sound waves to see at night. I also knew that the being lifted me closer to see me not for me to see him, it was a though he could see me from my commpassion that was different from the fear he is use to seeing. I drew a picture of this being and then thought i would do some research about it on line. This is the site I came across. I know that my experience was not in the physical as other accounts claim but I thought i would share my experience with this site.

  • S.A.Sophia

    I agree that fear should not be the tool to face such things in life, cause somehow they came into existence…..the big question is why we natural fear the unknown to and of life, when we can use a mind of compassion to truly find the answers.

    Just to note…..most are seeing that the invite is into the homes of people, However its my senses that its the bodies home of the soul and spirit that these beings are asking entery into to and within ingornance or innocence to the question can fool the individuals.

    cuz the unknown will get you killed. Fear is a natural instinct developed through evolution that has kept the human population and other species alive! Curiosity killed the cat. predator-prey interaction. For example, people are afraid of the dark because that’s when a predator would be most successful in hunting a human being.

    I dont know if this relates to the main topic of the BEKs but I want to tell about my contact with the spirit world. I had two experiences upon awaking in the morning. The first time I was awake but I was not able to open my eyes or move. I was on my back; I could hear the TV as I had fallen asleep with it on so I know I was awake but paralyzed. There was a heavy weight on my body as though someone big was lying on top of me. I then heard a voice in my left ear. This voice was so close to my ear that I could actually feel breath in my ear canal as it spoke. It was a very soft spoken but masculine voice that said ( I will never forget this) “My world is different from your world, but not as different as you think”. After he said the word think I was able to open my eyes and the weight was gone. I jumped out of bed in shock.I actually ran out the front door just to get out of the house so I could reflect on what just happened. The second time started the same way where I was waking but could not move or open my eyes. I started to hear numerous voices. They were not human voices; I can only describe them as sounding like the Gremlins in the movie “The Gremlins” or the cartoon chipmunks. I could not make out words but they were kind of laughing and swirling around my head. They sounded like annoying child-like demons or negative spirits. They did not seem emotionally powerful but like more of a nuisense. They were toying with me, I struggled hard to wake up and get out of bed and was able to fling myself right off the bed and I landed beyond the footboard on my feet. I do not know how this was even possible but it happened. When I looked at my cat who was normally very docile; he was standing on his back legs and swatting his paws aggressively at something unseen in the air in front of him. I grabbed him off the floor and again ran outside of the house. That time it took me awhile to come back inside as that experience was alittle more sinister than the first. I have had other spirit contacts but they were while in a dream state and I wont go into that here but I am mentioning those experiences to let everyone know that there is a spirit world that we cannot see and it overlaps and intertwines with our own reality at times. I don’t know what these kids are but, if they are real, then they come from one of those places that occasionally overlaps our physical reality.

    i don’t know if the BEK’s are real or not but if they are, that is good advice

  • alyssa0943

    i dont know if it is true or not but i really dont think it is. the only way i would believe it is if i had an encounter with one… but i would rather not

  • alyssa0943

    haha me 2 but i guess they can only get you if you let them in… not that i entirely believe it though

  • alyssa0943

    That means that a BEK can even walk up to you on the street?

    I thought the Black Eyed Kids could only come and knock on your door or window, or the door/window of any building or house you are in.
    And the only way to get rid of one is to not let them in and, eventually after
    the screaming and begging they will leave.

    But also someone posted that his or her friend saw two BEK’s and he (the friend was a boy) knew what they were. Not just two normal kids with strange eyes or contact lenses. So before they could ask him for help, He asked them for help. The two BEK’s just stood there, not leaving. He then started begging for help and eventually they just left.

    I have heard of people who have seen BEK’s and not let them into their house.
    And after some time. Maybe a month or a couple months. Maybe even a year and the BEK’s (or BEK) returned. No matter how many times the person moved the BEK kept returning. In some cases people were so
    annoyed and upset they just let the BEK come in. But those people were never seen again…

    So I think that the only way to permanently get rid of a BEK is to ‘Defeat’
    it or maybe even kill it somehow. If you have ever seen those BEK’s or if they keep coming and you read this comment, maybe try asking them for help before they ask you.

    I am not sure I believe in BEK but your story may change that. I hope I never have to meet one of them. Don’t give up if they are still following you.

    That has happened to me before but they were voices of my friends calling for help. One night I even heard the voice of my brother saying “Alyssa… come here… help me…” and as I heard that voice I felt as if I needed to look in the corner of my room and I saw someone standing there. It sure was not my brother! But I wanted to go, help him. But something inside me said Alyssa don’t. Whatever you do, do not go over there. So I didn’t.

    After that I just heard the voices of my friends again.

    My sister and I were out for a walk one night and I had never told anyone about it. So I told her and she said that I had not trusted whatever it was. I only told her because she has had many experiences with that sort of thing. So if you ever hear it and if you
    are not making this up then just ignore it

    You are not Wiccan. Just like Bree said, Wicca is not devil worship and Wiccan people don’t believe in the Christian Satan.

    I should know because my stepmom is Wiccan

    I am not WIccan. I am not Wiccan and even I know Wicca isn’t devil worship.

    Are you trying to be funny? Cool? Just as BlackEyedFrog said, devil worship originated from christianity.

    Being Wiccan isn’t worshiping the devil.

    And how is your friend a BEK?

  • alyssa0943

    i would rather not…

    If you research the work of Dr. David Jacobs, these are hybrids. And, they may indeed be “our” children. We just don’t know it because sperm and ova are removed while we sleep. I had the same dream as JenniferDestinedtoSurvive, but I was not afraid. She was my daughter, and she did not speak but used telepathy.
    If you want to know if you are an abductee and a subject of their (Grays) hybridization agenda ask yourself these questions.
    Have you ever had a time/location displacement event? Driving, walking, or doing something active and woke up miles off course with a certain amount of time missing.
    Did you become sexually active at an early age? Masturbation at an early age as well. Even incessant masturbation (boys).
    Ever missed a cycle for several months, felt a pregnancy was in progress (even if you were not sexually active), and then had a period and no longer felt a pregnancy?
    Feel people in the room as you sleep?
    Dream about aliens, playing with aliens or hybrids as a kid? Dream about being taken to strange medical facilities or Universities as a child by a parent?
    Feel something otherworldly is indeed going on, but also feel a strong sense of denial to the whole aliens on Earth subject?
    Do your children display any of the above?
    Just get used to the fact that your mind is like a parachute and it will not work unless it is open. Our minds have been closed by the media, TV, pop culture, corrupt governments, and a general sense of hopelessness. Accept the fact our leaders are in on this and that is why they are so corrupt, evil, devious, and deceitful.
    Aliens just might be here, and if they are, they may not be nice because they may not have a frame of reference as to our perception of kindness and humane behavior. Does your cow think you’re nice? Does your horse think you’re nice? Do the mice living in the walls of your house think you’re nice? Would you know how to be nice to these animals? You may be trying to be nice, but I assure you they are taking it differently than you think. Now, imagine an alien being from another star system. They could study us for a millions years and never develop a frame of reference as to what we may find to be nice.

    Seriously, teenagers who walk up to your door with Black Eyes are wearing Black Sclera Eye contacts. Or they ight have periodically Black Sclera.

    night terror is like arachnophobia: it scares even the most brave or rational person, because areas of brain that should analyze the situation are off… But if someone overcomes that feeling it turns pretty interesting, he/she would gain the ability of summon a projection of a pornstar like succubus/incubus that will turn the experience rather funny, (or if is in an ager age where appreciates more videogames and skateboards than such commerce, can get help in his homework by a benign horrible looking monster. ) Sleep paralysis and night terror are widely known and explained.

    A very disturbing subject. This is the stuff of nightmares. I am a licensed private investigator with a keen interested the strange & unusual – but these kids? Who, or rather what, are they? Do we know of any reports here in Canada?

    I just stumbled upon this article and I thought it would be a good idea to share my experience. In the year 2010, I had gone to Uttaranchal, India to buy a piece of land in a place called Ramgarh. It is a small village district in the Himalayas.

    After my legal formalities were completed, I decided to have lunch and my lawyer, a native to Uttaranchal, gave me directions to an old house before leaving for his office. I went alone. Only an 85-year old decrepit lady lived there all by herself. Adjacent to her house, there was another house separated by a barbed fence. Something was odd about that house. It gave a malignant feeling. The entrance door was not just locked from the outside but a mantra was painted on the door – maha mrityuanjaya mantra. Out of curiosity, I asked the old lady, Shanta, ” Who lives in the neighbouring house? ”
    At that moment her face went red. She said her sister used to live there and then one morning she was never to be seen. I thought maybe a hungry tiger took her away at night, but the cause was something I had never heard off. Even to this day, I think she must have exaggerated her story; her sister’s disappearance must have been caused by an earthly phenomenon. Some people love to play psychological games. I do not claim that the events were real. I’m only telling you what was passed on to me as an “interesting story”.
    Anyway, Shanta puts my plate on the floor and as she is pouring curd, she shudders and asks if I would like to know about her sister. I was interested more in the light of something creepily fun. That’s what I got, but the story does scare me sometimes, when I begin to remember my encounter with the old lady. She said the event occurred 30 years ago. Her sister, Parnika had just got married and decided to shift to the neighbouring house; a gift from a bride’s father to her daughter’s husband. For about a month, things went as usual until the night of the full moon (I smiled when she said that. I was ready for the bullshit that was coming!). Shanta woke up at 4 AM that day and felt this horrible pain in her stomach. As she walked towards her door, through the window on a sidewall, she saw two young girls with pitch black eyes knocking on Parnika’s door ( Wow, she could clearly see those entities at 4 AM….. and that too from a bloody good distance. Convincing me would take a lifetime, I tell you! ). Shanta felt something evil was lurking in her area. She said her fear was inexplicable (Thank God for that. Otherwise she would have added more drama without any logical links!). They were knocking incessantly for about ten minutes until Parnika came out. Then, some words were exchanged which Shanta couldn’t decipher owing to her distance. She saw Parnika sweating profusely for half an hour. She was just standing there looking at those entities. And then, for reasons unknown, Parnika allowed them to enter the house. At that moment Shanta wanted to run towards her sister to help her from the calamity yet to come, but something or someone stopped her. She just sat down looking through the window. No scream, no noise of falling utensils or whatever. Before, she realised the clock had struck 6. She decided to gather help from her villagers and took a bunch of them to Parnika’s house. They found nothing odd. Everything was in place and in order, only the newly wed couples were missing. Search parties were created with the help of local police, but those poor souls were never to be found. Before I left, she said there are evil spirits in that house. A pujari came long time ago after the event had already occurred and asked Shanta’s family to seal the house. I wonder if BEKs are real. I don’t know man. But the idea of disappearing without leaving a trace behind… that’s creepy.

    just suppose these BEK’s are clones—they did it to the sheep and named it Dolly—-Dolly had black eyes and no whites–and did not live very long—these kids have an odour to them – so maybe they do not live as long….they would have no soul since they were born in a lab—and not from a divine spark from God…..just wondering????

    But what are the chance two of these types are in the same neighborhood?
