I am Oren Peli, creator of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, producer of INSIDIOUS, THE RIVER, and upcoming CHERNOBYL DIARIES.
Hi Reddit. Long time lurker, first time poster...
A few years ago I got sick of my shitty-ass day job and decided to try something else in life. With a crew consisting of my best friend and my live-in girlfriend (she didn’t really have a choice) I shot a movie in my house. It turned out to be a huge success and now I make movies full time.
Happy to answer any questions about my projects that have already been released (Paranormal Activity 1,2,3, Insidious, The River), and the soon to be released Chernobyl Diaries (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pp9xuquibQc). I can not comment about other projects in development except to confirm that PA4 is slated for release on Oct 19th.
I’ll be around for a few hours.

Phew! I tried to answer as many questions as I could... that was a blast! thanks all.
If you liked my other movies (or horror in general) check out CHERNOBYL DIARIES, out next week on Memorial Day.
