Derwin (William Hellfire) and Derick (Joey Smack) are the typical outsiders at their school: They don't mix too well with the others, the get beaten up by the schools jocks, and once they are beaten up, they  get sympathy from noone, not even the holier-than-thou bible girl (Misty Mundae). But in their spare time they are interested in explosives and weapons, and they try to get some from the internet, just like they have been taught in school. And of course, their rooms are plastered with Nazi-paraphernalia ...

One day, after Derwin has received an especially severe beating from pretty much all of his classmates, he and Derick decide to retaliate, so they buy themselves a bagful of weapons, go to school ... and gun down pretty much everyone in their way. When the police finally arrives on the scene, they have no idea how to handle the situation and even shoot an innocent student just because he's a Goth and looks dangerous, while the arriving media is here only for the excitement.

Ultimately, Derick and Derwin take each other's lives in the broom cupboard, not because the police is closing in on them or anything, just because they want to end their own lives ...

 

By and large, William Hellfire's/Factory 2000's films are cheap and unreflected sexploitation flicks, more often than not with a horror edge to it, so it comes as no small surprise that Duck ! The Carbine high Massacre is actually a quite mature satire (!) on high school shoot-outs like the Columbine Massacre. What makes this film interesting is that it is not at all judgmental, and it tries to show understanding for its psycho-protagonists instead of just show them as pure evil, and puts part of the blame of their deeds on society, parents, media - but still without being judgmental. At the same time, the film  refrains from making its protagonists into heroes and does not turn their path into a righteous one, the film pretty much offers more different angles to massacres like the Columbine Massacre than similar films let alone traditional media do.

That all said, the film does have its weaknesses, it's rather horribly lit, the massacre in the end lacks directorial finesse and Hellfire and Smack are rather bad in their roles as the film's killers, Hellfire is way too charming to be an outcast while Smack does not invest any emotion at all into his role.

Still, despite its shortcomings, the film is worth a look or two ...
