Movie Info

Imagine being trapped inside a forest ranger station with your loved ones - and praying for your life as a fearsome, carnivorous creature lurks outside, waiting to clean up. This is the fate that befalls the young Danielle St. Claire (Cerina Vincent) and her boyfriend, Justin(Dominic Zamprogna) one evening, in acclaimed TV producer Stephen J. Cannell's made-for-television frightfest, It Waits. Traumatized by a recent auto accident that killed her friend - in which she was driving - St. Claire exiles herself to a ranger station in the San Bernardino Mountains. Meanwhile, a group of archaeology students from Princeton unwittingly open a nearby cave and unleash a centuries-old demon - that heads straight for Danielle. Underplayed and subtle, director Stephen R. Monroe leaves the goriest and most gruesome details off camera, allowing terror to build in the viewer's mind. Cannell co-scripted in addition to executive producing. Eric Schweig co-stars.

Critic Reviews for It Waits

All Critics (3)

A pretty good action horror film comprised of really good direction a la Monroe who knows how to draw tension and mount it inch by inch.

...ultimately bogged down by a melodramatic opening half-hour and a overall feeling of tediousness.

July 1, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Ironically, in this film, the "it" doesn't "wait" at all. It runs all over the mountain tearing things apart.

Audience Reviews for It Waits


The acting is beyond terrible, but the creature is pretty downright awesome. Attempts to have a plot, but said attempt is utterly thwarted by the cast's inability to act. Great modern B movie for when you want some SciFi-channel quality fare of creature feature action.
