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

Critic Reviews for The Pale Door

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (17)

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

    September 16, 2020 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    August 21, 2020 | Rating: 1/4 | 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.

    August 20, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The Pale Door is one of those films that becomes infinitely more interesting the more you learn about its origins, the process of creation, and the ideas which run through the film.

    October 4, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Co-writer/director Aaron B. Koontz's perceptiveness for the Western genre makes The Pale Door into a worthy hybrid horror.

    September 1, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Although The Pale Door stumbles a good bit it does offer a horrific look at misogyny, patriarchy, and the enduring Puritanism of America.

    August 28, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
