JOHANNES ROBERTS (Director) directed his first feature film straight out of university at the age of 22. Self-funded for £5k, the film, Sanitarium, sold around the world. For the next five years, Roberts learned his craft making low budget horror movies for DVD, including the cult movie Forest of the Damned staring Tom Savini and the world's first series made for cell phones When Evil Calls. In 2010, Roberts wrote and directed the thriller F - a story of a group of teachers under attack by a group of pupils in a college after hours. Made for only £150k and shot on location in a school just outside Cambridge with a crew of mainly students, the film was picked up by Studio Canal and released theatrically in the UK to critical acclaim, with many citing the use of parkour in the film as revolutionary. Roberts then directed Oscar-nominated actor Stephen Rea in the television movie "Roadkill" for NBC before helming the science fiction thriller Storage 24 for Universal. Written by and starring BAFTA-winning actor Noel Clarke, the movie was lauded for its innovative use of award-winning practical creature effects. Roberts then wrote and directed the ghost story The Other Side of the Door. Filmed entirely in Mumbai and starring Sarah Wayne Callies and Jeremy Sisto, it became Roberts' first international cinema release and grossed over $15 million, becoming one of Fox International's most commercially successful movies of all time.

In 2016, Roberts wrote and directed the underwater thriller 47 Meters Down, the first fiction drama movie to be filmed almost entirely underwater. In a truly unprecedented twist of fate, the film was just days away from a DVD release - with copies even out in some Target and Walmart stores - when it was bought from Dimension by Entertainment Studios, who released the movie theatrically. The movie went on to earn $65 million off a budget of only $5 million and become the most successful independent movie of 2017. Having finished The Strangers: Prey at Night, Roberts is now in pre-production on 13 O'Clock and developing 48 Meters Down and the Stephen King novella Heart in Atlantis.
