Critic Consensus: Beyond The Pale Door lies an intriguing western/horror hybrid -- albeit one that struggles to fashion its halves into a compelling whole.

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.

The Pale Door is a raucous ride through a different type of wild west.

Koontz's command over the material is so absent that it is at times hard to distinguish his film from a spoofy Western-themed fair where a group of friends play dress-up for amusement.

As a B-horror movie, The Pale Door holds its own. As a Western, however, the film struggles.

August 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Prefaced by an Edgar Allan Poe quote that gives the film its title and proves the scariest thing about it, The Pale Door represents yet another stylistic mash-up that ends up less than the sum of its parts.

The whole enterprise would be amusing if it weren't so pathetically miscalculated...There's simply nothing funny or horrific to be found here.

Half revisionist western, half lurid witch thriller, 'The Pale Door' settles in a space where it is disappointingly neither.
