David F. Sandberg has had great success. After creating a Lights Out short, he went on to extend it into a full feature. The film was both a critical and box office success. And then, there was Annabelle: Creation. That franchise got off to a rocky start initially, but he was able to help course-correct it for the sequel. Finally, he stretched himself in a new way with the kid-friendly Shazam!, which also helped send the DC Extended Universe in a solid direction.
And yet, in spite of all this, he’s always doing creative projects on the side. He has a YouTube channel where he does fun one-offs. He’s made informative videos where he talks about test screenings and he’s made videos where he discusses his process.
Finally, his YouTube channel is also where his various short films live — and there’s a good number of them. But if you’ve already seen a bunch of those, then fret not, there’s one more for you to peel your eyes around. It’s called “Shadowed,” and it’s a companion piece to Lights Out.

As you can tell, this movie has a similar idea as Lights Out, but in reverse. In Lights Out, when the lights go out is when the monsters appear. Conversely, in “Shadowed,” it’s when a light is cast that monsters reveal themselves. This is a fun example of how Sandberg messes with basic ideas that almost anyone can execute with a bit of ingenuity.
What do you think of “Shadowed.” Do you see it being good enough to warrant a full feature adaptation? Let us know your thoughts down below!
