David F. Sandberg‘s Lights Out (2016) did exceptionally well at the box office pulling in over $25 million on a $5 million budget. Probably did not hurt to have James Wan as producer. David F. Sandberg will return to direct the Lights Out Sequel with Eric Heissererexpected to return to write. Check out our Lights Out review here. What started as a scary horror short film has now become a new horror franchise, excellent.
