First, I have to admit. I'm a sucker for "Monday Night Movies". I've watched many of them starring some of the top tv stars of their time.
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......
