Tales of black-eyed children have existed since the 1950s also having ties to the men in black and are said to sometimes give the affect of radiation poisoning to those who come in contact with them. Original sightings are from Texas and Oregon but
the most famous account was from a man named Brian Bethel who One night leaving his apartment to go to the local shopping centre, parked next to a movie theatre when two boys, aged somewhere between 10-14, knocked on his driver's side window, they both wore pull-over hoodies and the tallest of the two began to talk to him. Immediately the feeling of fear gripped Bethel but he couldn’t tell why, rolling down his window the taller boy smiled and explained the two wanted to see a movie, but had forgotten their money and needed a ride home to get it. Something definitely felt wrong, the boy was too confident acting as if he was required to let them in the car. hesitating to answer the second boy eyed him nervously with a mixture of confusion and guilt, Both boys seemed a bit surprised that he had not agreed immediately, the taller boy began assuring again that they just wanted to go to their house. sure something was wrong now Bethel asked what movie they were going to see, the taller boy answered quickly but looking back at the theatre he realised that the last showing of that movie had started an hour ago, the silent boy was looking increasingly nervous now and the taller boy started talking soothingly, assuring Bethel that they couldn't get in his car unless he let them and that they would just go to their mother's house and then the boys would be gone before he knew it. Bethel realised his hand was on the door's lock and that he had started to open it, jerking it away violently he looked back up to try and explain his action but in the moment he had pulled his hand away from the door he had broken eye contact with the boys for the first time, now when he looked back he saw what he had failed to notice to this point, the eyes of both boys were just coal black orbs with no irises or pupils! The silent boy had a horrified look on his face, the look on his own face had given away his discovery. The taller boy now clearly angry continued to ask Bethel, screaming to let them in! That was enough for Bethel slamming the car in reverse he tore backwards out of the parking lot, looking back he saw the boys were gone, the sidewalk near the theatre deserted.
