"Let me in...and we'll talk about it."
So in my readings of the various blogs devoted to Weird Shit, the BEK seem to be one of the predominant memes doing the rounds at the moment, and for the last 12 years now.
The above link contains a retelling of the story that started it all. An account by a guy named Brian Bethel, from 1998, who got held up by a trio of juvenile demoniacs who claimed to want a lift back to their place. Their story was that they'd forgotten money for cinema tickets, and they wanted a lift in his car, back to their house to get it.
Subsequent stories follow a similar structure, but more commonly involve the Kids wanting to come into someone's house. It is always very strongly implied that they can't come in unless specifically given consent or invited. No stories have apparently surfaced, where the Kids have actually been let in, either; it is implied that anyone who has done so, has come to a messy but otherwise unspecified end. It is also vaguely implied that these entities feed on people in some way.
It's true that in some ways, the structure of these accounts resembles the MIB (Men In Black) phenomenon from some decades earlier. I've also developed something of an unhealthy, somewhat horrified fascination for BEK stories; at times I've tried to hunt down as many of them as I can find.
The thing I'm trying to figure out though is, what are these things? The usual atheistic interpretations have been offered; normal kids on shrooms, or Goths with black contact lenses playing pranks. That might account for some of them, perhaps, but all of them?
The predominant paranormal theories are either a) demons who've somehow managed to find a way to become physically/corporeally incarnate, or b) Grey/human hybrids who've managed to break out of the lab.
Does anyone here know anything about them?
I always thought the black eye children were either trans dimensional entities or something like fey, not a specialist on fey but I have been told they come in many sizes and shapes and with many weakness and abilities. I think their here to capture and brink people to where every they came from for the gods only know why.
