The Mysterious Black-Eyed Children - Castle of Spirits Paranormal Podcast Ep22

Updated: Mar 27

In the late 1990s, journalist Brian Bethel documented a frightening encounter with what he termed "black-eyed kids": mysterious beings resembling children that carry with them an aura of malevolence and can be identified by their monotone voices and pitch-black eyes. In writing about his experience, Bethel unwittingly brought into existence one of the most persistent and terrifying urban legends of the last fifty years. But is there any truth to the existence of black-eyed children? And if such creatures do walk the earth by night in search of victims, how far back in history might their origins be traced? Join us as we ponder the possibilities of this uniquely chilling phenomenon. Listen to Episode 22 here.
