My team and I are making this movie because we’ve all been affected by the hatred, repression and misunderstanding of others. Our cast and crew represents a diverse collection of talented individuals who are all passionate about sharing this story with the world….(read more here and watch the trailer).
The film was inspired by my need to further expose the hate and toxicity that has plagued our world with fear. I’m talking about the fear created through racism, homophobia, senseless killings and the basic misunderstanding for one another as human beings. Because isn’t that what we are all…human? It’s the most basic thread that connects us together and yet somehow, a vast majority of society has forgotten it.
It is truly horrifying (no pun intended) how much hatred consumes our daily lives and what better way to showcase this monstrosity, than through the medium produced to capitalize on fear itself, the horror genre. Seems pretty fitting doesn’t it?
HELLo tHERE isn’t your regular run-of-the-mill horror movies. The film is thought-provoking, emotive and geared towards creating such a visceral reaction when viewed, it not only broadens your horizons but incites change…change for a better world, change for a society where love is the answer and hate is a distant memory, because quite frankly, the truth doesn’t always mean rainbows and sunshine. The truth can be a painful experience, but that shouldn’t stop us from doing what’s right.

HELLo tHERE takes a dark, but realistic look at the psychological trauma caused by inequality, racism, and homophobia. Our goal is not just to scare the bejesus out of you, but to create a film that is equally terrifying as it is thought provoking. This world is, and has always been, plagued by senseless fear and hatred for one another as human beings. My team and I are fully dedicated to telling stories that showcase the “horrors of reality” in an effort to inspire change.
