Library synopsis: [It] In un college nei dintorni di Londra, all’inizio dell’anno accademico, gli studenti “anziani” ritrovano un mondo conosciuto – arido nozionismo, ottusa disciplina impartita da sadici “prefetti”, omossesualità – i “nuovi” lo scoprono, alcuni con sgomento. Tre amici dell’ultima classe, Mick, Johnny e Wallace, manifestano in vari modi la loro insofferenza verso quel genere di “educazione” ma vengono puniti con la sferza. Un giorno, obbligati, sempre per punizione, a ripulire i sotterranei del college, vi trovano armi e munizioni. Alla festa di chiusura imbracciano le armi e cominciano a sparare all’impazzata sulle “autorità” convenute. Segnalazioni Cinematografiche
