The first black eyed kids sightings began to surface back in 1988 when journalist Brian Bethel claimed he met two of them near his car one day.
He noticed that the children were extremely confident and eloquent in their ways – not something you would normally attribute to kids of this age group.
Once he was inside the car the kids started to ask for a ride and he felt completely overpowered by their requests. He was just about to allow them into the car when he noticed their eyes were completely black with no iris or pupil.
The kids seem to realize that the game was up and began to get extremely angry with Bethel when he stopped them from entering the car. They became so insistent and freaky that Bethel quickly closed the door and sped of into the distance.
When this report was eventually put online it was met with numerous other witnesses who also claimed to have come in contact with these Black Eyed Kids.
The strange thing is that ALL of these reports seemed to go down the same ally – the kids are always attempting to get inside someone’s car!
One would think that these types of ‘entities’ would breed more adventurous tales but that has not been the case. For some reason they always want a lift somewhere.
Each case involves an excuse such as “I need to get home to my mother,” or something that implies the child is in need.

This is the type of paranormal report that can always go down the Slender Man route – a great freaky idea that has gathered pace due to the power of the internet.
There are thousands if not millions of people out there that take great pleasure out of winding up people who believe in the paranormal – this would be a simple story to gather pace and get people talking right?
The strange thing is that if we look logically into these stories about these children, we get to learn that all of them were asking to be let in. It’s as if they cannot get into the car without the driver giving permission first.
None of these reports have travelled further than this point – all of the drivers have so far rejected the requests of the children.
Begs the question really – what would happen if these children were let into the car?
Witnesses all claim that these children give off some sort of dark vibe when they are talking – those that meet them claim to feel threatened, panicked and even disoriented.
Some people have suggested that this is a side effect of their telepathic powers – the hypnotic suggestion they attempt to use to convince drivers to let them in.
All of this sounds brutally familiar right? Do you know how many long-standing beliefs in religion include entities that NEED to be invited into your property before they can come in?
There is also the case of these entities taking on a child form – a very clever move that again has been covered in numerous religious texts.

So what could they be? Why would a respected journalist like Brian Bethel make something like this up and attempt to ruin his own career?
