the definitive film of the "shack beating" sub-genre
21 June 2020 | by redandblue32See all my reviews

HUT BEATINGS: THE MOTION PICTURE (aka United Red Army)

If you are a fan of people being beaten in hovels, shacks, or huts, this is the film for you! The movie features at least two shacks where the beatings take place. Every kind of pummeling, pounding, beating happens on screen - INSIDE THE HUTS!

Sometimes the people being beaten are taken outside of the hovel/hut/shack, where they die. Some viewers might be disappointed by that. But don't worry though, most of the action takes place inside the hut.

The film suffers from only one flaw: there is a third hut featured in the last part of the film (kind of a fancier one); unfortunately I don't think anyone was savagely beaten to death inside it.
