Peli began as a computer software programmer, being one of the developers behind Photon Paint, a bitmap graphics program for the Amiga. His first film Paranormal Activity was inspired by Peli moving into his first house alone and without family nearby. Peli would hear creaks and knocks in the night, which laid the groundwork for a film about a family running around with cameras trying to catch what was going on in the house.

Peli also produced and wrote the 2012 horror film, Chernobyl Diaries, based on the Chernobyl disaster and on his story The Diary of Lawson Oxford.
