WITH any luck the plague of “black-eyed children” will have a taste for ebola, rather than a liking for blue-eyed children, who are the tabloids’ preferred little monsters.

Following news of a black-eyed child-sized ghost playing peek-a-boo in Cannock Chase comes news that the planet if rife with a tribe of such beings.

The Star’s Jimmy McCloskey has news:

Paranormal experts have reported a puzzling rise in the number of frightening apparitions that have been recorded.

How you become a paranormal expert is a moot point, but owning the TV’s Most Haunted  boxset and thinking  Blithe Spirit a documentary are entry-level modules open to all.

In the UK, the black eyed ghost of Cannock Chase has returned after a 30 year absence striking terror among locals. It is unclear what has caused the sudden jump in sightings, but it is causing alarm among those who monitor the supernatural world.

Shesh! Even the fifth dimension is on CCTV. Is there no escape?

Frightened Daily Star readers have called in to say they’ve also seen the creatures in Liverpool, Scotland and the South West.

The Daily Star once declared is support for the EDL. It’s firghtened readers very possibly poke black-skinned pople in the ribs to see if they’re made of coal and point at the moon.

Experts say black eyed kids are among the most terrifying figures to emerge from “the other side”. They are said to represent the “highest levels of pure evil”.

Time for an expert view:

Ghoul boffin Luke Norris, who runs Omen Paranormal Events said: “A lot more people are aware of spirits now. This means people are more open to seeing them – which in itself means they are more likely to spot them. Black-eyed children have this darkness in their eyes tend to mean that someone else is controlling them…”

The website for Omen Paranormal Events informs us:

We are a paranormal event company with over forty years combined experience within the paranormal arena.

Based in the North West, we travel across the UK providing paranormal events including Ghost Hunts, Psychic Demonstrations, Medium based shows, private parties etc. We have two main motives, to capture and provide evidence.

Any evidence captured? The website features none we can see. We do see Mr Norris, the “ghoul boffin”:

Hi I’m Luke and I’m the team spiritualist medium. I have been talking, hearing and seeing spirit for many years and I work closely with my guides in love and light and enjoy what I do.

But you might not love it. As he tells the Star :

 “If you see a ghost with black eyes you could well be in trouble.”

Well, you’re the expert. Non-experts might have thought seeing a dead-eyed child was a prelude to big Lottery win. It isn’t. Probably.

But despite their innocent appearances ghost buffs warn the appearance of a black eyed child is often a sign of impending doom.

That undead child singing nursery rhymes is the picture of innocence?

But what are these creatures?

Paranormal experts believe they may be aliens or vampires rather than ghosts, the spirits of dead people .

The experts think they could be vampires or aliens or ghosts or a new type of grapefruit. If the experts don’t know, are we all doomed? The idea of aliens navigating the cosmos to play hide-and-seek in Cannock Chase is an intoxicating one.

Another expert, Lee Brickley, 28, says the apparations might be linked to the “Cornovii, a Celtic tribe known for their blood sacrifices”, “a mass hallucination” or “weird, covert military stuff”.

They are usually said to be between six and 16 years old, with terrifying hollow black eyes and ghostly white skin with a corpse-like bluish tint. Many are said to speak with adult voices and in a way that suggests they are far older than their appearance suggests.

They’ve had a hard life.

It’s all wonderful stuff, and Jimmy McCloskey slips into a flowery mode, posssessed, if you will, by the language of the 19th Century preacher man:

In the United States, there have been several reports of the the ghouls appearing at people’s doors and asking to come inside. Shielding their face, they hose the owner with charm giving them a false reason why they need to to use the phone or hide from an unspecified danger.But once inside they will suddenly turn on the owner and cause havoc.

Ever been hosed with charm? Or does sir prefer to be soaked in bullshit?

But let’s not be cynical. Let’s look a few encounters with a BEK.

nosleep2012 (aka nosleepeveragain) writes about a midnight visitor:

It almost felt like a dream. I woke up to my dog, Lucy, barking…

I decided the best bet would be to open the door and show her nothing was there. It sounds a bit silly, but it’s what we do with our daughter when she gets scared, and I figured it should work with a puppy, too… I looked through the peephole. I can’t explain why I looked, but I did. Outside were two kids.

One was just a smidgen shorter than me, and didn’t look much younger. I’m 21, and she looked to be 16 or 17. She was slender and pale. Her hair was a light shade of honey blonde, and she wore it long, about mid-back, with long, thin, blunt bangs in the front that covered most of her eyes. She wore jeans, a light-wash that’s popular right now, and a thin-looking olive colored pullover style hoodie. She held the hand of a small girl, who looked to be around 3 or 4, in the same style jeans and a button-down ivory cardigan. The smaller one looked at the floor shyly, but had the same shade of hair, tied back in a ponytail. She held a stuffed toy under her free arm, and it was identical to one my daughter has – as was their style of dress. Had it not been for the feeling of overwhelming dread and fear, I probably would have asked these children in and given them some tea or hot chocolate to get them out of the bitter cold. Something about them seemed off...

Call it intuition.

As someone who has always been interested in creepy stories, I knew what she was the second she looked at me through the door…

And him :

“I was skateboarding at around 10:30 last night and i had stopped to take a rest when i was approached by two kids one with blonde hair and a baseball cap pointed and a skateboard painted all black on the bottom and the other slightly less intimitdating as he look to be around 8 he had blonde hair also and was wearing a spiderman shirt the older one spoke to me as i
