Beyond Human? The Legend of the Black Eyed Children

Posted: - Category: Otherworldly Beings - Author:

They come when you are least expecting them. Strange otherworldly children, with pure black eyes, standing at your doorstep, begging to be let in. They will strike fear into your heart, and you will feel your soul slowly consumed by the deep dark abyss of their empty eyes. Never, ever, let them in.

Beyond Human? The Legend of the Black Eyed Children

At least, this is what alleged witnesses have claimed of the legend that has become known as the Black Eyed Children. These unnerving tales first began to gain traction in the late 1990s, when stories began to circulate on internet forums and message boards. The exact origins of the legend are unclear, but it is believed to have originated in the United States.

The typical story of a Black Eyed Child encounter goes something like this: a person is at home, usually late at night, when there is a knock at the door. When they open the door, they are confronted by one or more children, usually pre-teen aged, with completely black eyes. The children ask to be let inside, claiming to be lost or in need of help. Their language is often odd and disjointed, and their clothes are plain and outdated. Those who have encountered them often report feeling a sense of intense fear and dread, as if the children are somehow not quite human.

Many who claim to encounter these beings simply close the door due to being overwhelmed by fear. However, some who have encountered Black Eyed Children, and have allowed them to come in, claim to have been physically or psychologically harmed as a result. For example, some report feeling drained of energy, while others claim to have experienced unexplained scratches or bruises on their bodies. Witnesses have also reported strange disturbing paranormal events occurring in their homes for days afterwards.

Many who have encountered these 'children' also report feeling as if they are under some sort of mind control, as if the children are able to influence their thoughts or emotions in some way. These beings also have a habit of vanishing suddenly, when a witness looks away for a moment and finds them gone, with no trace of them to be seen either up or down the street.

Author and researcher David Weatherly has written several books on the Black Eyed Children. After compiling stories from thousands of alleged witnesses over the years, he has reached a conclusion that these entities could exist to feed on our fears. In a 2020 episode of the 'Strange Intruders' podcast, he said:

“First of all, there's this basic unease that grows to a panic, the flight mode kicks in and it's not fight or flight is outright flight mode. And what is that? That's a spike in adrenaline and in fear, and fear is a very powerful emotion. What I find compelling about this, is that in almost every case I can think of when this level of fear spikes in the victim, these kids vanish. It gives you this sense that they got what they came for.”

Despite the many reports of Black Eyed Children encounters, there is no concrete evidence that these beings actually exist. Skeptics suggest that the stories are nothing more than hoaxes or urban legends, while others argue that they may be the result of misidentified real-world phenomena, such as children with rare eye conditions.

However, those who believe in the existence of Black Eyed Children see them as something much more sinister. Some suggest that they may be demonic entities or even extraterrestrial beings with malicious intent. Others see them as some sort of supernatural or interdimensional beings that are beyond our understanding.

Whatever the true nature of the Black Eyed Children may be, it is clear that they have captured the imagination of many people around the world. From horror movies and comics, to paranormal podcasts, they continue to be the subject of much fascination and fear.

So, if you ever find yourself at home late at night and hear a knock at the door, beware of who you may be letting in. The Black Eyed Children may be out there, and they may be closer than you think.
