Storyline

Jan Foster is a courier in Kentucky who lives a peaceful life with her husband Dale, her preschool-age son Cody and her teenage daughter. The peace is shattered when her nanny reports that Cody is using obscene language and behaving in an unusually aggressive manner. Cody's sudden misbehavior occurs just after he meets an invisible friend on the playground. Jan believes this friend, whom Cody calls "Man," is no figment of her son's imagination, but a real entity. At first Cody's description of Man leads her to think he is the ghost of a murdered boy. Man eventually proves to be something much worse: a cackling demon who persuades Cody to urinate in his closet and attempt to kill his sister's cat. To fight this supernatural threat, Jan turns to her good friend, a shaman, whose knowledge of ancient rituals are Jan's and Cody's only hope. Written by J. Spurlin

Kentucky household upset by boy's invisible playmate...
16 October 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

What strikes me as odd here, is the fact that the boy calls his playmate "Man." Yet, the mother never suspects that the playmate is not a boy of his own age--instead, she assumes it's an imaginative playmate figure that she believes every boy makes up when he's a lonely.

Actually, the "boy" is a demon--who takes form as an adult man later on in the story--so why is the mother so surprised? Cody is the boy's name. The woman's babysitter claims that he's acting strangely when the mother is away at work, using strong language and becoming a different person. To the mother's annoyance, he's always carrying on conversations with what she still believes is an invisible playmate.

Toward the story's end, when the mother gets a glimpse of "Man" and is shocked by his angry countenance, she calls upon an Indian shaman to rid the house of the demonic entity that is a full-grown man. He gives her instructions on how to do the job herself and it seems to work--at least for awhile.

Good entry in the series is well acted and fun to watch.
