After graduation, Gregg wrote & directed the film festival smash “THE OTHER SIDE” starring Jaimie Alexander (from "THOR" & NBC’s “BLINDSPOT”), which he financed himself for a total budget of $15,000. The movie Premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival where it was snapped up for a theatrical release. Variety called the movie “a lean, propulsively paced supernatural thriller, packed with pulse pounding excitement”. Gregg is currently developing the movie as a TV series at Fox Studios.
Gregg directed & produced “DANCE OF THE DEAD” starring Lucas Till (CBS’s “MACGYVER”), which had its World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival and was hand-picked by director Sam Raimi (“EVIL DEAD”, “SPIDERMAN”, “DRAG ME TO HELL”) for distribution through Lionsgate and Ghost House Pictures. It opened to overwhelming positive reviews and landed on several “top 10” list for the year. Ain’t It Cool News hailed “DANCE OF THE DEAD” as “a cult classic” and Bloody-Disgusting called it “one of the best horror comedies ever made that will be remembered for years to come.”
NBC/Universal G4Films produced his Webby nominated short film "THE BIRDS OF ANGER" starring Jaimie Alexander. Gregg wrote and directed a segment called "DANTE THE GREAT" for the third installment of the highly acclaimed V/H/S franchise which was released theatrically from Magnolia Pictures’ genre arm Magnet Releasing.
He recently finished directing the feature film "SiREN", which was released in theaters last December by Universal Pictures Chiller Films and is an adaptation of the popular short V/H/S segment "AMATEUR NIGHT". Ain’t It Cool News called it a “rock solid monster movie with a strong ensemble cast” and LA Times hailed it a “clever and confident expansion of a terrific short.”
Upcoming projects include an original science fiction thriller that he is currently writing and a new original horror movie that he is developing with the writers of SiREN, both of which he plans to direct. Gregg recently sold his spec script he wrote with Joe Ballarini called “LOCKDOWN AT FRANKLIN HIGH” to Sony Pictures with Michael Bay producing.
