Encounters with Black-Eyed People

There's something more than just odd about these black-eyed people. Those who have encountered them sense an air of evil, of malevolence. Doubters say they are just posers with black-tinted contact lenses, but people who have met them face-to-face say that their strangeness goes much deeper. The feeling is of darkness, demonic... not human. Oh, and never let them in your house if they come knocking. Here are some true stories.
