When I first heard of BEK phenomenon I thought it was a load of BS, it wasnt until I read OzWeatherman's possible BEK encounter on here that things
really started to get weird/scary--and it hit home so to speak, and not just because we are in the same city!
I was reading OWM's thread over a couple of days, I wasnt registered so reading threads is a little annoying with all the add's and I couldnt stand to
read it all in one sitting. I was also cross-referencing the stories on her with those on other sites when I read "..the more interest you show in the
subject, the more likely you will encounter them..."
And then there was a knock at the door, at 9 minuets to 9 at night--an odd time for anyone to bang on my glass door. It was a solid 3 bangs on the
glass panel. I froze in fear, I could not move from my chair and had the worst kind of dread I have ever felt. I stopped reading on BEK's and tried to
distract myself with reading news websites.
Even thou whomever (whatever) knocked on my door, they did not leave the vicinity right away. I have a loose gravel road out the front and I could
hear at least 1 set of footsteps walking around outside.
My dad came home at about 11pm (I was so relived when I heard his car, and NB: heard him sliding the fly-screen door to open the glass door!) and I
was still in such a shaken state that I told him about the knock, and I tried dismissing it as just being the neighbor, Baz. My dad informed me Baz
and his wife were away for the weekend so I then told my father about the BEK phenomenon--he thinks I'm losing it.
I was still shaken a couple of weeks later and told a friend of mine who is the ultimate skeptic scientist type, he wanted confirmation of the
different sounds of someone knocking on the glass door, the glass adjacent to the door, the aluminum frame, and the glass door with the screen closed.
All these areas produce a distinct sound when knocked on--except for knocking on the glass door with the screen door closed, because you cant!.
When I heard the knock that night I never heard the screen door open, this fits with some of the descriptions mentioned in other accounts where the
witness goes to the door and sees the BEK with its hands so deep in its pockets that it appears impossible that they performed the knock with their
Later that night, at around midnight I could hear the sound of two boys giggling just outside my house, I was in no state to investigate.
This episode was followed by a couple of weeks of high strangeness: weird lights in the sky, weird banging noises like someone (not something small
like a car or possum) jumping on my roof, and red & blue flashing orbs...
This event sacred me a LOT to the point I mentioned it (at risk of sounding like a complete loon) to my doctor. Whatever knocked at my door that night
was the scariest thing I have ever had happen. (I once had an Uzi pulled on me my a Jerusalem police officer, which sacred me but NOTHING LIKE
The weirdness has died down in the past week or so, at no point I am calming to have a BEK encounter, but there is something truly WEIRD about the
To the OP: I have encountered 3 stories of when a BEK/BEP was permitted entry:
1. A woman was cleaning at her church with her younger daughter, the daughter let the BEK in and the woman let her use the phone/bathroom (I cant
remember which) while the BEP was doing this she called her husband to come down and take the daughter home. The woman claims to never be alone when
cleaning the church. As far as I know there has been no follow up event related to this.
2 & 3. These stories are that similar that I will write them as 1 incident. A young male was at home playing video games and he answered a knock at
the door, one of the kids says he wants to use the bathroom and he grants permission--without directing the child to the bathroom, the child
instinctively goes upstairs and the host says "its on the right", the other child still downstairs mentions that they have come to "collect" him and
he runs and locks himself in another room for an hour or so. The other account is similar except the host is a female and the room she is claimed to
be locked in is a bathroom and not a bedroom like the male's encounter.
A 4th account, which I think is BS is one where the guy claims to have used a saw to defend himself from the BEK, but this account is quite fanciful
and does not fit the modus operandi of typical BEK/BEP encounters.
All of the above can be found here on ATS as well as other sites.
ETA: OzWeathermans's BEK Thread
, is worth a read if your new to the phenomenon. Also
search ATS as there are heaps of stories buried in the threads
