David F. Sandberg has made himself into a household name. Not everyone is obsessed with the film industry like me so whether you recognize his name or not, you'll definitely recognize some of his films.
The Swedish born director first started out as an animator and filmmaker before turning his talents to YouTube for mass appeal. Displaying his talents in multiple horror shorts on his Ponysmasher channel, Lights Out stood out and gained Hollywood attention. Lights Out was turned into a feature film in 2016 and then he directed Annabelle: Creation. Then he got the opportunity to make Shazaam.
Now while we all face the real life horrors of a virus threatening our livelihoods, David has gone back to his roots and blessed us with his next horror short Shadowed. We can only hope to see this idea on the big screen soon.
His wife Lotta Lotsen acts in most of his shorts with cameos in all of his feature films.
Check out Shadowed where you'll surely enjoy the scares in this 2 and a half minute horror short that is scary good.
