Encounters With Black-Eyed Kids

The children approach quietly, yet forcefully. They insist on coming inside your house to use the telephone or to get a drink of water. For some reason these children frighten you, and as your hand reaches up to open the door you see why. Their eyes are black. No iris, no whites, just an empty, soulless void.

Tales of Black-Eyed Children began appearing on online forums in the late 1990s. I published my first article on Black-Eyed Kids in 2008 and since then I have seen reports of these entities go from rare to common.

Explanations as to what they are include alien/human hybrids, demon-possessed children, and cryptoterrestrials. Regardless of their origin, one thing is certain – they’re terrifying.

A Ghostly Entity

Kerrie Kisner hadn’t intended to stop at the Triangle Town Center mall on her way home from Wake Tech Community College near Raleigh, North Carolina, but she did. She wished she hadn’t.

“There were very few people there that day and found it strangely eerie how quiet it was,” Kisner, 20, said. “While walking back to my car I rounded a corner and saw an older lady and a young boy. He immediately caught my attention because he was so odd looking, I had never seen anyone like him.”

The boy, about twelve years old, seemed average at first, but as Kisner watched him talk with the woman, he seemed anything but average. The boy’s black hair contrasted sharply with his pale skin; dark patches hung under his eyes. “It looked like he hadn’t slept in weeks,” Kisner said. “He had a very thin face.”

As Kisner walked closer to the pair, she heard their conversation. In a quiet, but strong voice, the boy asked the woman for help. “He stood very rigid with his hands by his sides looking at the ground as she fished around in her purse for something to give to him,” Kisner said. “As I got closer I noticed he seemed to get more and more uncomfortable.”

The boy began to shift his body when Kisner passed them on her way to her car, then he lifted his head and made eye contact with her. “I froze. His eyes were black as night, very dull, almost dead,” Kisner said. “The look he gave me has haunted me. The feeling I got from him was as though he wasn’t all there, almost ghostly.”

Eyes locked on Kisner’s, the boy turned slowly and not waiting for the older woman to give him what she dug for in her purse for, simply walked away. Kisner doesn’t know who, or what the boy was, but this memory will stick with her forever. “Ever since then the look he gave me has haunted me,” she said. “Almost like he knew what I had been thinking.”

What was this individual Kisner saw at the mall in Raleigh?

Something Undead

Experiencer Ezekiel Finch is convinced this boy, and people like him, aren’t human. At least not any more.

“I’ve run into these things more than once. Different ones in different states,” he said. “With a fair degree of certainty I can tell you what these things are, vampires.”

Finch has had two close encounters with Black-Eyed People, one in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the other in the medium-sized city on the East Coast where he lives, and chose not to identify.

“Two of my most extensive encounters were within very, very close quarters in the low 30s,” Finch said. “I watched them as closely as I could.”

Standing in the cold night amongst a small crowd of people, Finch suddenly felt uneasy. Something was wrong with two people there. First it was their black eyes flatly staring over unnatural smiles; then it was something subtler.

“People breathe all the time. They inhale before speaking, and that’s it,” Finch said. “When they did speak you didn’t see anything. Not a damn thing. Everyone else had visible breath, they didn’t.”

Finch stood watching the pair chatting with the people around them. Steam rose from everyone else’s mouths. “Not a thing from them,” he said. Finch studied them closely for the next ten minutes and saw why their breath wasn’t visible in the cold night – they weren’t breathing. “No movement from the torso at all. Still as a corpse.”

Black-Eyed People have become a staple in conversations of the strange and unknown, and almost every reported encounter is eerily similar. Children, as young as six years old to adult age, approach people alone or with a partner and beg for help; please let us in, give us a ride, follow us here. Permission to enter is also a legendary trait of a vampire.

“They ask permission for a simple reason, if someone invites you into their home they are less likely to call the cops on you,” Finch said. “You invite them in, you feel sorry for them, drink with them, buy drugs from them, (have sex with) them, whatever angle they used to get you to open the door they can catch you off guard, then BAM, you find out why they are actually there.”

Finch’s second encounter wasn’t from across a parking lot of people – it was a little more personal.

“I had the displeasure of conversing with one as she tried to convince me it was fine for her to be invited into my home,” Finch said. “It was 30 degrees, snow on the ground, and she was wearing a tiny mini skirt and a spaghetti-strapped top just standing there.”

As he stood inside his doorway, listening to this scantily clad girl beg him to let her into his home, he thought she might be under the influence of drugs, but quickly saw something else. “There was no reaction to the cold, no visible breath, no inhaling,” he said. “She could care less about the temperature, or breathing.”

Finch said he doesn’t believe Black-Eyed People are anything short of monsters. “They want you to be at ease. They want you to feel safe, to feel like they are harmless. You want you to give them a ride or let them in,” he said. “They are predators.”

Shuffling Terror

Jim Stills stood in the parking lot in front his brick apartment building in Massachusetts, the glowing ember of his cigarette bright in the night. He soon found he wasn’t alone. “At night, I usually go stand outside to have my cigarette,” he said. “I noticed that there was a kid.”

The “kid” was about twelve to sixteen years old. Each night Stills noticed the boy walk down the street toward him; his gait was unusual. “I’ve lived in these buildings my whole life, and I’ve never seen this kid anywhere,” Stills said. ”He would show up around 10 o’clock at night and walk slowly at a sluggish pace along the main road.”

The boy would move from one building to the next, checking doors. “It was enough to spook me out so I stopped going out front at night.” But he still looked for him. Staring out his widow, Stills would see him night after night, slowly pacing up and down the street until about 3 a.m.

Eventually Stills forgot about the boy and one night went outside for a smoke. What he saw terrified him. “Standing right next to my door was the kid,” Stills said. “Standing and looking at me, asking if I could buzz him inside the building.”

The boy’s his face was covered by his hoodie, but Stills saw his eyes. “Totally black,” he said. “Not a single drop of color anywhere.”

Stills told the boy he couldn’t let him inside and bolted back inside the building, making sure the door was locked behind him. “I had this overwhelming feeling of absolute terror in my body,” he said. “I didn’t sleep and occasionally looked out my window to the boy pacing along the road. I haven’t seen him in months now, but I won’t sit out front at nighttime anymore.”

They’re monsters

An anonymous poster to my blog “Black-Eyed Children” said he battled one in the woods.

“It appeared in the form of a fifteen-year-old girl,” he wrote. “I noticed its pure black eyes. It was forceful, then aggressive. Somehow my fear changed to anger.” Anonymous said this “girl” had rows of shark-like teeth, and as it moved closer to him, “the black eyes seemed to become even darker.”

Whatever these entities are, the fact is people around the globe are encountering beings that look human, but are something else, something dark. Finch thinks they’re feeding off us. “Sorry, no alien/human hybrids. No demonically possessed school kids. No horrors from beyond time and space. (They’re) monsters,” Finch said. “Don’t let them in, don’t try to make friends with them. They aren’t Ann Rice or Twilight, more like Jeffrey Dahmer or John Wayne Gacy – monsters that look like people.”

    Hey, it could just be the diclonius.8D /elfen lied reference.

  • Tim

    I also encountered them to in Los Angeles

  • kingemocut
  • yet, no accounts of what they do, just an encounter?! i want someone to pick one of these children up and shake him, asking why are you so fucking creepy?!

  • Vern

    After everything I’ve read it seems like a hoax. A lot of dramatic attention seekers among the rare few possible encounters. I once read a twilight like story of a black eyed person floating outside of girls window and giving her an amulet. Lol…ahhh The internet.

  • this is crazzycrazzy

  • disqus_jz3XUgUCqy

    I had a violent encounter with one of these black eye kids
    last year I am only 17 I had an encounter I will never forget I was bringing my
    dogs inside from the yard cause they were acting weird. I don’t know why but as
    I walked out I grabbed my metal baseball bat. my dogs 1 is a Doberman the other
    is a Rottweiler when they are scared. I go with a sense of need to protect
    myself. I got them in they were scared
    out of there mind, I don’t like something that does this to my dogs so I went
    back outside I was something moving just out of the light I hoped off my porch
    to say come on out. All I got was come on, cause the boy about my age he looked
    had black eyes no pupils. Just black coals. I felt as if I was looking at death
    himself. Now this is where thing got violent cause, I am not scared of nothing
    on earth, it seemed to intimidate me by
    just looking at me. Before it started to run at me for no reason I could see,
    my yard is only 20ft to the fence. I had no time to turn and run, I just swung
    my bat, It felt like I hit another metal bat but it didn’t feel like that long
    cause I had knocked the kid to the ground, I caught him in the head I thought I
    just killed him. I walked up my steps look back he is gone, I go inside the
    door I had made my hands bleed I hit him so hard with the bat. That thing was
    no human I hit. I watch my yard now more than ever when the dogs are outside in
    case he comes back to even a score.

    This is crazy,but I feel like I should believe it…

  • Paul Bleemstra

    Seriously. None of these people call the police or have even a shred of credible evidence. Obvious hoax, especially because reports only started in the last 20 years or so. Anyone can perpetuate a myth, look at slender man lol

  • Where did this attack take place? Did the kid ever say anything, or were they silent the whole time?

  • Sydney Pearl

    I once had an encounter with a group of children. They didn’t have any iris in their eye, none of that white. But just that soulless, terrifying pure black. I was walking through the Florida Mall at 23:00 after my shift and I just saw this group of children outside the M&M’s store. It was 2hours since it closed so i didn’t know why they were there. Anyway the mall was only open due to the hotel there. The children turned to approach me. I just stopped chewing my gum and just left it there, in my mouth. I said “What are you doing this late in the mall?!” A child came and said to me “Take me to my mother’s house.” I was then like “Ok…” but I saw a pale face and just black eyes. “Please, please!” said the kid. The other kids came behind him. I ran to the exit and was about to call my boyfriend but the line was dead. I turned back to look and they were stood right in front of me. I noticed that their chests didn’t move as i looked down at some small kid. I screamed thus spitting out my gum. It landed in ones eye, melting it. The children disappeared. The black eyed kids are real i noticed.

  • Have to say this is not what I like to see…

  • Are they always white, or do they appear as different races? Maybe the same race if you are black or Asian, they appear to be one of your race?

  • kelsey berry

    that’s really that image will be stuck in my head now

  • Zachary Tilley

    if that was the case then why do they try to get into folk home in the middle of the night? Not a good way to make friends dude!!! LoL smh use sum common sense!!! Let them in your crib and then tell me how that works out

  • Angel wings

    Really? Let’s face facts…we know what normal looks like. Even people with disabilities still look normal. If you go out at night there are things that we just can’t explain. Much phenomena happens without our true understanding. Our world is much more complicated than any scientist or paranormal investigator doing a lifetime of work could possibly explain. If you enjoy your life……then it becomes YOUR responsibility and only yours to protect it.

  • Angel wings

    This is one of the creepiest things I have ever heard. Thankfully I have never encountered anything like this and hope I never will.
    In this world of many unexplainable things we all need to be cautious.

  • caty

    omg wow

  • Glasskeys

    But you have to admit these stories really stick with you. Spell binding in the most twisted creepy ass way possible.

  • Ritac

    That is very scarry! Hopefully I won’t see them.

  • Scott Stacy

    A very good friend of mine had one approach his vehicle the other night and asked to come in or could he come inside the car. He is a very religious person and drove away. Said it appeared to be a young teenage boy with black eyes and very odd teeth.

  • vic

    If ur higher on the food chain why exactly do u need to ask our permission first? Ur just anotha try hard and g it must b great
    roaming aimlessly for ur next meal. Having souless children and no home to go to and all of that.

  • Skyler Gage

    Some people wear costume make-up and black sclera (fake eye contacts) for show. Don’t be rude to those who aren’t your perceived ‘monsters’. Why would a ghost show up at Starbucks or WalMart?

  • Raven

    What if they are good .maybe it’s just how people aren’t used to them that makes them so scary

  • Sarah Booth

    Humans should be afraid after all the evil rhings they do to animals and their own guess what its judgement time

  • crimson stone

    okay, if these… things… are real why the hell are they asking to be let in?

    Their eyes are pure flip flacking Black with no iris or any of the usual stuff so what the hell makes them think someone will actually let them in?

    Only someone as stupid as heck would let them in.

  • crimson stone

    but thou must believe!!!!!


    Man i’m weird…. Maybe its best if you dont…i dunno….

  • crimson stone

    my thoughts exactly

  • Phyre Storm
  • A. Nonymous

    Agreed! Though, maybe people have but turns out once you let them in they kill you, causing all who give in to be unable to testify.

  • b. roca

    Your speech is not that of a BEP/BEK. nice try, ordinary& delusional human.

  • James Wolfe

    Never heard of Aniridia? Sorry but a friend has this – utterly black eyes – and I can see him breathing. I’ll ask him tomorrow at work if he has a taste for human blood though… just to make sure. Or if he wants to suck out my soul.
    As for not breathing – I have lung problems. I breathe much more slowly and no where near as deeply as most people. I’ve been CPR training and freaked out my fellow trainee cause they thought I hadn’t been breathing for the three minutes she was trying to record my data for our training. I do not have any plumes of breathe in colder weather unless I take a deep breathe and let it out fast… and my eyes are pale green.
    I think people have been watching twilight – and other vampire movies – a bit too much. Mass hysteria. If these “black eyed people” existed and in such great numbers as apparent they would have been present LONG before modern society.
    As for the excessive sharp teeth. I grind – as do countless other people – at night in sleep so that the teeth directly behind my upper canines have become to such a degree that my dentist calls them secondary canines. People used to use nail files to grind their teeth down – they still do.

  • Brian Cummings

  • elaine

    what does it mean when a persons iris turns red kind it kind of looks like they are wearing contacts but you know they aren’t because just a second before their eyes were a really pretty greyish blue

  • Kimberly Cakal

    by the way i will say that it happened in NC

  • Elizabeth Lindsey

    My husband has black eyes and i get bad vibes but i love him should I worry about that he can be forceful sometimes to with things

  • Katherine Ara

    The eyes (Sclera AND Iris) are all black. There are NO whites to the eyes at all.

    This is what he means when he speaks of the “Black eyed kids” It’s NOT someone having dark brown eyes or dark pupils. The whole entire eye is black. Including the whites of the eyes.

  • Cosplayeyez Dotcom

    If your eyes are deep brown, you probably have a hard time finding colored contacts for dark eyes. A lot of non prescription natural colored contacts are very translucent, and that doesn’t work out well for people with dark eyes. It’s absolutely possible to find colored contacts for dark eyes on this site from the USA.

  • Edrick Leiper

    so it bacically Black-eyed children (or black-eyed kids) or otherwise known as the DEKS

  • Edrick Leiper

    that would be a kanima
