The supernatural thriller — made on a ,000 budget — was released widely by Paramount Pictures in the fall of 2009 and ended up grossing 8 million at the domestic box office, with a total of 3 million worldwide.

Peli went on to produce five sequels in the “Paranormal Activity” series, and is also the producer of the “Insidious” movies and the horror films “The Bay” from director Barry Levinson and “Lords of Salem” by writer-director Rob Zombie.

“‘Paranormal Activity,’ that was a break from coding for me, and that did better than my wildest dreams,” he said.

“It’s a bunch of people hanging out, and maybe you make a romantic connection or just make new friends.” Peli founded Spot last year with Oren Zbeda, a software project manager, with whom he’s been friends with since they were teenagers in Israel.

The two co-founders are the sole owners of the company, with no outside investors.

Spot users can share events on Facebook and Twitter or invite friends via SMS and email.

Of course, to some people the idea of issuing an open invite to total strangers for meetups around town might seem more than a bit creepy.

Also, said Peli, “hopefully people will be on their best behavior in a group event.” He added, “Twenty years ago, it would have seemed insane to meet someone on the internet for a date.” Today, with services like Uber and Lyft, “you get in somebody’s car to drive across town.” As for Spot’s business model, Peli said he’s not focused on generating revenue initially, following the classic startup strategy of building a user base before turning to monetization.

In the future, he said, the company could create a new event category with deals sponsored by local businesses, or allow users to pay a premium to have their event featured in a “spotlight” section.
