With Halloween coming around the corner and little kids coming to the doors of strangers asking for candy, beware of the Black Eyed Kids. If the images of movies such as “The Children of the Corn”, “The Omen”, “The Village of the Damned”, or those creepy little twin girls from the “Shining” haven’t terrified you of the little ones, this post might do it.
While reading over many encounters of these mysterious children from paranormal/UFO sites, I had the natural jerk reaction from time to time to look over my shoulders to make sure there was nothing behind me. I also have a habit of leaving my front door open with the security door closed and locked to let the cool air breeze flow through my house during the evenings. After reading the first few of these accounts of the black-eyed kids I couldn’t fight the urge to close my front door in fear of walking to my kitchen and seeing two silhouettes of small children peering into my house demanding me to let them in.
The sources that I have uncovered from surfing the internet vary about who these mysterious beings are or what their true agenda serves. However the descriptions of the out of this world kiddos tend to match with each other. They have pale or olive-like skin. Their clothes usually tend to be modern of the time periods of the encounters, however the color of the clothes tend to clash or they were all black. Their eye sockets are commonly described to be empty or missing human eyeballs and are nothing more than black voids. The most common theme of these encounters state that the B.E.K.s have to be invited into your house or your car. These kids do not act like normal kids. They are not shy. They will try to play on sympathy or resort to intimidation. Some sources claim that these children are somehow tied or even related to M.I.B. (Men In Black). Other sources are stating that they are hybrids of vampires and werewolves and are used to lure unsuspecting prey to the lairs of their masters or possibly vengeful spirits.
Personally I wouldn’t be surprised if many claims tend to be fictitious stories that have spread like wildfire on the internet that have good entertainment value to allow bloggers, including myself, to make a living. However there are a lot of these stories and some can be traced back to Ancient China, so the possibility of these other worldly children trying to gain entry into your humble abode could have some truths. I’m not going to rehash all of these supposedly true encounters because it would distort other’s perception of their reality. But, if you are interested and brave enough, check out my references and dig deeper if you dare. If you decide to be skeptical that is normal, however, if you are visited by these creepy little kids and they try to pull the sympathy card or intimidate you, Do Not Let Them In!
