The movie gets better in the last half, but by then it's way too late. The dialogue has a real TV show quality about it as well, witless and not at all realistic. I give it two stars for the setting and the hot babe, but it's a complete failure as a horror movie. These people have no clue what they're doing in this genre.
This film is hard to assess. On the negative side, it is entirely predictable, so much so that I felt as if I had the script in hand and were reading ten pages ahead. The disparate aspects of the plot (i.e., Danielle's grief and the creature's murderous spree) do not mesh well or indeed much at all. There is also an attempt to link the creature to a vague, apparently Native American, mythology, but this attempt falls flat--very flat, in fact. Danielle comes upon someone who seems to know about the creature, lectures her, and provides her with something to read so that she can defeat the thing. As it happens, though, these elements play almost no role in the film's resolution, and they seem pointless as a result.
On the other hand, there are a great number of things that work well in "It Waits." Foremost among the positives is Cerina Vincent, who must carry a large part of the film since she is the only human on screen for long periods of time.Read more ›
Things I have to say about this flick:
1. Cerina Vincent constantly wears skimpy outfits, revealing her large bust. While other characters will completely zip up, Vincent will be unzipped, exposing the curves of her boobs in a tight, white tanktop. Obviously by exposing her boobs in tight shirts, the director wants to arouse male audiences. But where's the nudity? There's a sex scene, but still she doesn't get naked. The director lost points with me for that letdown.
2. Vincent isn't a convincing forest ranger. Her makeup, hair, and skin is always perfect. Is there a beauty salon in that forest?
3. The deaths are predictable. In many horror movies, there's that cliched stock character who acts like a jerk to everyone with little or no provocation. Is anyone surprised when he's killed? There's a character that knows a horrible creature is killing people. So what does he decide to do? He decides to leave the protection of the ranger's tower...at night...without a firearm. I hope no one is reading this review wondering, "Does he live?" What do you think?
4. There are there weird MTV, Dawson's Creek, Party of 5 type music montages. Vincent will sometimes be sitting around moping, staring into the distance. Then there will be this Lilith Fair, Sarah McLachlan type music playing. Why is this in a horror movie?Read more ›

I have an abiding fondness for monster movies (good and bad). While this one does lose points for style, it sticks to the rules of the genre long enough to be satisfying. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Einsatz
