1981

I believe this incident occurred in the summer of 1981, when I was sixteen. I was out of school at the time, and my best friend and I were out partaking in one of our favorite pastimes: spelunking of the amatueur sort. Our particular goal that day was the finding of a cave called Turner's Cave, one we'd heard about from my parents who said it had been a designated government fallout shelter. We knew of one that might qualify, as it had a large entrance and such, but it didn't seem large enough for a fallout shelter to us. We explored it once more (we'd been in it before), and then decided to move on down the creekbed and try to find another that might be it. The creekbed was dry, so the walking was easy. About a quarter-mile or so downstream from the cave's entrance, we happened upon an old logging road and decided to check out the other side of the ridge, as this side wasn't looking promising. We followed the logging road, which ascended the ridge at an angle, until we reached the ...

Why it’s creepy: Scary movies constantly have people fearing old country back roads, abandoned homes, and kids popping out of corn fields, but the Black-Eyed Children are known to be seen wandering around totally normal, non-threatening locales like Wal-Mart parking lots and Sonic Drive-Ins. And worst, they’re rumored to put their victims in a tight situation by starting out asking for something totally unsuspecting like a ride home or some petty cash. Where it came from: The first documented case of the Black-Eye Children came in 1996 from reporter Brian Bethel, who had pulled his car into the parking lot of an Abilene movie theater to use the bright marquee light to write a check. While filling out the check, two young kids who Bethel claims were between 9-12 approached the car, knocked on the window and asked for a ride home to grab cash to come back for movie. The children, who totally unnerved Bethel, claimed they didn’t have a gun (weird, right?) before making eye contact and revealing coal-black eyes that Bethel later described as “ the sort of eyes one sees these days on aliens or bargain-basement vampires on late night television ." --
