Trivia

The movie began shooting in 1999 after the Columbine Massacre, and finished shooting in mid 2001. It was initially slated for release later that year in the fall. The release was canceled after September 11 terrorist attacks, out of concern over public reaction. Director Ben Coccio spent the next six months heavily re-editing the film. It was finally released in 2003, nearly two full years after filming was completed. See more »

Goofs

In the opening credits one of the main characters, Andre Kriegman, is erroneously called Andre Kreigman. In the rest of the movie his name has a correct, German, spelling of the name. See more »

Flawed but honest with a terrible honesty
14 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Zero Day leads you to think, even re-think why two boys/young men would do what they did - commit mutual suicide via slaughtering their classmates. It captures what must be beyond a bizarre mode of being for two humans who have decided to withdraw from common civility in order to define their own/mutual world via coupled destruction.

It is not a perfect movie but given what money/time the filmmaker and actors had - it is a remarkable product. In terms of explaining the motives and actions of the two young suicide/murderers it is better than 'Elephant' - in terms of being a film that gets under our 'rationalistic' skin it is a far, far better film than almost anything you are likely to see.

Flawed but honest with a terrible honesty.
