I actually didn't catch I've Been Waiting For You on it's original run, but caught it much later. The film caught me from the beginning, as the story was intriguing.
The film opens with the narration of a legend about a witch who was killed by members of her own town. We are then brought into the present in the same town, witnessing a single Mom and her daughter (played by Markie Post of Night Court, and Sarah Chalke from Roseanne and Scrubs) moving into a new house. The young lady, Sarah Zoltanne, is into the New Age and is quickly drawn to the history of her home and the town with the help of her new friend, but school outcast, Charlie.
Sarah is immediately labeled as a witch at her school due to the strange things she is able to do (which leaves the audience wondering...is she really a witch?), and the school popular gang is determined to run her out of town. The film continues on a wild ride of twists and turns, complete with a masked man in a cloak reminiscent of Scream.
For a made-for-tv movie, this is really enjoyable. There is not any gore, which does not deter from the plot of the film. You can also enjoy Sarah Chalke lip-syncing and dancing to the great song "The World Outside" by The Devlins. For a fun night in with the girls, or even for a date, pop this movie in and have some fun. The film will keep you wondering until the end, and not until the very end do you truly find out who the real Sarah is......
Before I go on, here is a little summary:
The movie is about a girl named Sarah that moves into a small town with her single mother named Rosemary. To the local high schoolers she's weird: she's from California, she wears "weird" clothes, and she has witty and aloof air to her. Of course, that makes her an out cast...and it doesn't help that she lives in a house that has a freaky history.
To make a long story short, trouble starts when some person stalk and terrorize a certain group of people--and group think it's Sarah. They have their reasons...but I won't get into that (don't want to spoil the movie).
Now, the movie does have an interesting plot, I give it that, but if you are a person that craves the gore, the slash, the horror...you won't get it here. The body count is nill and the only thing the villian does is scare the heck out of people. After all, this was made for TV, so the budget is not very high.
Now...for the villain. It was obvious that the NBS producers tried to cash in on the hype of scream. The villain costume looks very similar to the Scream one. You think they would be a little more creative.
The ending is sort of spenseful, but confusing. I saw the movie twice. The first time I didn't get it and the second time I only half got it. You will probably have to rewind it one or two times to get everything...a lot of revelations happens at the end.
The plot "twist" was surprising, but kind of corney.
So if you are in for some mindless horror, this movie is for you.
