Trivia

Written on spec in the seventies. Several directors, including Tobe Hooper, had tried to get it going. And several studios, including Amblin. The project was re-set up in 2003 Philippe Martinez at Bauer Martinez Studios with Dolph Lundgren as the star attached and Steven R. Monroe set to direct. The production got canceled as a deal could not be finalized with the writers. Another project for Lundgren and Monroe at Bauer Martinez, "The Soul of Caleb Lee", also fell through, but Lundgren then went on to make his directorial debut for the company with the movie "The Defender".

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 »

Decent Horror Fare
8 June 2006 | by (Waterbury, Connecticut) – See all my reviews

This movie is the reason why I scour the video store shelves for low budget horror flicks. Most of the time, of course, I am sadly disappointed but other times - like this - I am pleasantly surprised. Considering Richard Christian Matheson wrote the story I was fairly confident, although it is a rather pedestrian story about an ancient Indian demon, inadvertently released from a cave, wreaking havoc on a mountainside. A female park ranger, wrestling with her own demons, has to find the ability to battle this monster and save herself. The horror elements were standard and fairly well done and the script, while spotty, was okay. "It Waits" is decent horror fare, better than some of the dreck that is getting released in movie theaters.
