The Dalton gang find 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 tells the story of two brothers in the west. After having a rough childhood that we touch on at the start, we then follow them later into their adult lives as they are part of a gang, a score goes wrong, and they run up on what they assume is a brothel but it’s really a coven of witches. I do give this one credit for creativity in that regard but this one also comes with a few down moments that you can’t help but notice, especially when we reach portions of the movie that we just want things to get going. I’m usually all about character development, but this one might have a tad bit too much in that area from time to time. The build-up is a bit slow, but you could say most of the movie is saved when it actually comes down to the payoff of it all.

When the “stuff” hits the fan in The Pale Door it really hits the fan. That is when this movie is at it’s best. When this gnarly witches go into their true form and start trying to battle these cowboys it is one heck of a time. It’s also a time that comes with lots of gore and blood. That’s my kind of stuff, so naturally, I enjoyed it from when this stuff all starts to the end more so than I did the start of it. This one is still different enough overall for me to say it’s worth you guys giving it a watch if you want. The action moments are the best, but it does still manage to be a little creepy from time to time too.
