Aug. 20, 2015 - PRLog -- Gregory Blair’s performance as the odd, mysterious “He” who waits in Sam Ghazi & Cheryl Compton's short film HE WAITS has been nominated for “Best Actor in a Short Film” in the 2nd annual FANtastic Horror Film Festival, which takes place this October in San Diego.  Nominations were announced ealier this week by Mike and Joanne Thomas, the creators of the festival.

“I’m excited and honored this unique film has been recognized by leaders in the indie horror community” says Blair.  “It’s a refreshing shift away from the traditional fare that fills the horror genre buckets.  There are no jump scares, no blood, no “tricks of the trade”—just a simple, yet unnerving story that quietly suggests something creepy going on.  Something very creepy.”

Blair is reticent to reveal any more of what lies within the film, though he openly praises the HE WAITS team.  “Sam is a thoughtful and patient director and, with cinematographer George Toland at his side, he made terrific directorial choices that tell the story in the most efficient and effective way.  Of course, it helped that Cheryl--a great producer/writer--was there every step of the way and that the idea of the script was gold from the start.  Carrie Jones was a joy on set as the self-absorbed mother and I couldn't ask for a better costar: the adorable Brighton Toland, making her film debut and stealing my heart in the process.”

HE WAITS has also been nominated for “Best Short” and “Best Score” (Armin Antique).  The film will make its San Diego premiere at the FANtastic Horror Film Festival on November 1st in the shorts block that begins at 11AM.   The awards will be announced later that evening at a gala function.

Tickets to the screening are available at:
