MASTER OF HORROR: A native of Israel, Oren Peli came to the U.S. at the age of 19. Back home, he had dropped out of high school at age 16 to write PHOTON PAINT, a highly successful paint and animation software for the Commodore Amiga, then became a full-time software programmer, using his skills to create animation programs and video game software.
Peli then transitioned into filmmaking. Paranormal Activity, which Peli wrote, directed and produced, was his first film. Since then, he produced the hit sequels Paranormal Activity 2, 3, and 4, The Marked Ones, and The Ghost Dimension. The original Paranormal Activity, which was made for only $15,000, would go on to make nearly
$200 million. In total, the Paranormal Activity movies have earned more than $900 million, making it one some of the highest-grossing horror franchises of all time.
Peli is also the producer of Insidious 1, 2, 3 and 4 and of the horror film The Bay, from director Barry Levinson, and Lords of Salem by writer/director Rob Zombie. He was the co-creator and executive producer of the ABC Show The River, from executive producer Steven Spielberg, and producer/writer of the movie Chernobyl Diaries.
Going back to his tech-roots, Peli founded SPOT, a mobile app that lets users easily create or join other local users’ events to meet new people with similar interest
