Movie Info

Set in the not so distant future, sixteen year old Herman Howards enters his suburban school and kills thirty nine students, two teachers, and a police officer. Just before his arrest he emails his idol, famous journalist Lax Morales, sending him clips of the shootings captured with Herman's own digital camera. In the clips Herman tells Lax, "I want to tell my story on your show". Hello Herman explores why and how a massacre like this can happen in our society, desensitization in America, youth violence and bulling, the impact of the media and ultimately our need for connection.

Critic Reviews for Hello Herman

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

More redundant than offensive.

June 7, 2013 | Rating: 2/5

At least it doesn't lack in big moments where people cry and scream.

June 6, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

It barely tries to offer insight into its much-debated subject, content to rip the scab off an ever-fresh wound for the sake of controversy.

Top Critic

The dialogue is all surface: Emotions are laid out on the autopsy table for the audience to dissect and analyze, but rarely feel.

June 4, 2013 | Full Review…

The alignment with Herman's perspective, even as it never downplays the gravity of his crimes, leads the film into a set of obvious conclusions.

June 2, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It's a call to look at ourselves, our families, our schools, our workplaces, and our communities and doing everything that is within our power to do.
