The Pale Door (2020) – Coven of Western Witches

After a train robbery goes bad, two brothers leading a gang of cowboys must survive the night in a ghost town inhabited by a coven of western witches.
Desperadoes meet an even deadlier group in a new film from the creators of Scare Package and presented by Joe R. Lansdale (Bubba HoTep) that’s been scheduled for later this summer.

Directed by Aaron B. Koontz from a script he wrote with Cameron Burns, it stars Devin Druid, Zachary Knighton (The Hitcher), Noah Segan (Scare Package), Stan Shaw (The Monster Squad), Pat Healy (The Innkeepers), Bill Sage (We Are What We Are) and Melora Walters (Cam).
Koontz has stated “I love the idea of mixing these two disparate worlds of horror and western, and to do so with the help of Joe and Keith Lansdale, feels like the perfect devil’s playground. It’s 3:10 To Yuma meets The Descent, but doused, and then set on fire with psychological horror. Once this gets going, it’s relentless.”
“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.”
