brilliantly done ....
Pale Door was a pretty middle of the road movie. I’d say this was a 2 1/2 star movie. Nothing scary and the church scene kind of goes on for to long. If you have seen everything on Shudder and have 90 minutes to waste, give it a shot.
Yikes. Pretty mediocre film, unfortunately. Sub-par acting, forced sentimentality in the sound score, excessive use of standing-and-talking exposition. The horror elements were underbaked and abandoned for an awkward and drawn out attempt at relationship building. Just a pretty underwhelming film. Gave it a 2/5 for a single instance of well implemented foreshadowing/call-back.
I generally like all of the movies that Shudder recommends but this is the first one that I really finished with a solid 'meh'. I'm going to blame it on the pandemic and that there's an utter dearth of quality content so they feel compelled to keep recommending things but, yeah, this is about as meh as you can get without it being actually bad. If there's literally nothing left to watch - and I mean that you've gone through your backlog of Teletubbies episodes - then give this one a shot. This is the kind of horror movie you play in the background of a busy Halloween party that's just getting going while everyone is enjoying punch and catching up with friends.
