Sanberg has produced a wealth of horror short films and features. In 2016, he expanded his “Lights Out” short into a full-length horror film, starring Teresa Palmer and Gabriel Bateman. More recently, Sandberg directed the 2019 superhero feature Shazam!, and the Swedish filmmaker is already tapped to direct the untitled sequel to the superhero flick. Sandberg also directed The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle: Creation.
Sandberg first gained traction in 2006 by posting short animated films on YouTube while also working on a series of documentaries. After collaborating with producer Claes Lundin, he sold an animated documentary series called Earth Savers. Shortly after that, Sandberg switched over to focusing on no-budget horror shorts, establishing himself as a bold new voice in the horror genre.
Watch the two newest additions to Sandberg’s horror catalog below, as well as a collection of some of his best spooky shorts.
