RLJE Films and Shudder have teamed up to acquire director Aaron B. Koontz‘s and Fangoria's horror-western hybrid The Pale Door, The Wrap reports today.
RLJE plans to release the film theatrically and on VOD and Digital HD this August, and it will then premiere on Shudder at a later date.
In the film, which is described as 3:10 to Yuma meets The Descent, “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.”
Koontz (Scare Package), Cameron Burns and Keith Lansdale ("Creepshow").
The Pale Door stars Devin Druid ("13 Reasons Why"), Zachary Knighton (The Hitcher), Melora Walters (Magnolia), Bill Sage (We Are What We Are), Pat Healy (Cheap Thrills, The Innkeepers) and Noah Segan (Late Phases, Looper).
The film is executive produced by Joe R. Lansdale (Bubba Ho-Tep, Cold In July).
