Overview

Andre (Andre Keuck) and Cal (Calvin Robertson) seem like fairly ordinary high school students. Andre is a quiet loner, and he's a bit obsessed with munitions. Cal, Andre's only friend, is slightly more adept socially. He even has a friend, Rachel (Rachel Benichak), who's a girl. But Andre and Cal have big plans. They're going to be famous one day. And they're going to teach what they see as a valuable lesson to everyone at their hated high school. Zero Day, the feature debut of Benjamin Coccio, is presented as a collection of videotaped moments leading up to Cal and Andre's planned murderous assault on their school. Cal and Andre are creating a video diary of sorts, which they keep in a safe deposit box, to be opened after their horrific deed is done. The film follows Andre and Cal as they explain their plan -- both the logistics of it and, to some extent, the motivations behind it -- and prepare for their violent act. In the interest of verisimilitude, the lead actors' families play themselves, and cast members, for the most part, were not told the larger context of their roles. Zero Day was a controversial hit on the festival circuit before being picked up for distribution. It won Best Feature at the 2003 Slamdunk Film Festival and the Audience Award at the 2003 Rhode Island International Film Festival.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Superbly acted and shot with brilliant economy, Zero Day is every bit as disturbing as it means to be -- and more. First-time writer/director Benjamin Coccio is so determined to avoid the traditional scapegoats for school violence that he's forced to leave the motivations of his smart, self-aware killers, Andre (Andre Keuck) and Cal (Calvin Robertson), nearly completely opaque. That's appropriate for an outsider's perspective, but insufficient, because Zero Day presents itself as the two hyper-articulate adolescents' own video manifesto. Because they make surprisingly little effort to explain why they're planning such a horrific act -- they spend more time exculpating the entertainment media and their seemingly caring, but oblivious, parents -- the film takes on a nihilistic tone. Even the bullying and social ostracization that is generally supposed to be the lot of such unhappy teens is relegated to the background. This is perhaps understandable from a disturbed adolescent's point-of-view, but unacceptable for what one hoped would be a thoughtful examination of the issues at hand. The movie doesn't have the formal rigor of the similarly constructed Blair Witch Project, so it's not as though Coccio is evasive simply in a desire to remain steadfast to his antiheroes' limited perspective. In fact, the film's biggest structural fudge, and the biggest gamble Coccio takes, is in showing the school massacre, as captured by security cameras. By straining conceptually to show the act itself, by far the least convincing and most troubling sequence in the movie, Coccio crosses the line from sympathetic exploration into glorification and exploitation. Zero Day is undeniably absorbing and disturbing, and Keuck and Robertson deliver astonishingly naturalistic performances, but in the end, the filmmaker's vagueness of purpose betrays their efforts.

    YIKES

    Great movie, but more than a tad disturbing. The characters seem like your everyday highschool kids--until you see them plotting a school shooting. While watching, it's almost like they're just talking about it. Then Zero Day arrives and you're like, "Nooooo!" Definitly a wild ride...and that Cal dude was so cute!
