Trivia

Cerina Vincent was director Steven R. Monroe's first choice to play the lead character Danny. Monroe was convinced that Vincent could bring to the role an appeal to both men and women, and that she could deliver the dramatic screenes in the film. Cannell also felt that Vincent had the talent to carry the film. See more »

Goofs

When Cerina Vincent's character meets a Native American that knows about the creature she is told that the creature does not like water and therefore stays in its cave when it rains. In a scene just previous to this the creature stalks and kills another character when it is obviously raining quite hard. See more »

Reasonable Low Budget Movie
9 August 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The lonely forest ranger Danielle St. Claire (Cerina Vincent) works alone in Tower 19 of the Forestry Department of a remote National Park. Danny is grieving the loss of her best friend Julie Cassidy (Miranda Frigon) and is tormented by the feeling of guilty, since she was responsible for the death of her girlfriend. While driving Julie's car after drinking in a bar, she had an accident but she did not assume that she was driving. When a group of students releases a demon trapped in a mystical cave, the creature attacks tourists nearby her tower and later her boyfriend Justin Rawley (Dominic Zamprogna). Without communication or means of transportation, Danny fights to survive while the monster is attracted by her sadness.

"It Waits" is a reasonable low budget movie that gives the sensation of déjà vu since it uses many clichés of the horror genre. Further, the demon is a rip-off of The Creeper of "Jeepers Creepers" and when the creature attacks Danny, it recalls the famous scene of "Alien" and Lt. Ripper. Cerina Vincent is extremely sexy and has a good performance, attracting the creature not because of her beauty but her pain and misery for the loss of her close friend. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "À Espera do Mal" ("Waiting for the Evil")
