Cerina Vincent in "It Waits" (2005)

Cerina Vincent (Maya, Lost Galaxy) continues to add to her horror movie resume with "It Waits," where she plays a troubled forest Ranger who is thrust into the middle of a creature's rampage in the forest. As she's forced to wait in fear for the lurking creature, she learns about its mythical origins and battles her own inner demons to survive the ordeal. This movie starts out okay and Vincent does get to show some acting range, but once the monster finally shows up, it takes on the normal horror flick cliches. The movie is shot very well, though & Cerina Vincent looks her best, as you can see in the screencaps below.
