Movies In Focus is getting serious From Dusk Till Dawn vibes from this poster for The Pale Door. The western–horror looks like it might deliver some effect low budget thrills, but I think that the Aaron B. Koontz film won’t be any type of ‘elevated horror’ scenario.
Using the 50/50 genre switch gimmick of the 1996 Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodrigeuz looks like a way of making this pic work. It should do the trick when it hits selected cinemas, on demand and digital on 21 August 2020.
The Dalton gang finds shelter in a seemingly uninhabited ghost town after a train robbery goes south. Seeking help for their wounded leader, they are surprised to stumble upon a welcoming brothel in the town’s square. But the beautiful women who greet them are actually a coven of witches with very sinister plans for the unsuspecting outlaws – and the battle between good and evil is just beginning.
