In case you haven't seen Lights Out, the film is based off a short created by Sandberg about a killer creature who appears when the lights go out.

It was produced by James Wan, Lawrence Grey and Eric Heisserer and was a huge success following its premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

The film stars Lotta Lotsen who also appeared in the original short movie. Lotsen returns for Sandberg's new short film Shadowed.

Sandberg dropped the film earlier today (April 2) while revealing details about how it came together for curious fans asking questions.
