Storyline

A Gothic soap opera that took place on a small Caribbean island, Strange Paradise featured the occult in the story of wealthy but cursed Jean Paul Desmond who resided in his castle Maljardin with his servants Raxl, a voodoo priestess, and Quito, a mute strongman. When the series began, he was mourning the deaths of his wife Erica and their unborn child. His desire to bring his wife back to life resulted in more tragedy. Eventually Maljardin burned down and the action moved to Desmond Hall, the family home somewhere in the United States, and many new characters were introduced. Written by Anonymous

Favorite Show Finally Found
26 May 2007 | by loveswolves61See all my reviews

I used to love this show when I was a kid. I was a total Dark Shadows fan and was heartbroken when it went off the air. Strange Paradise used to be on very, very late in New York and I would set my alarm clock to get up! (I was only 8!) No one I know has ever heard of this TV show and I thought I was crazy! I can still remember the creepy drums at the beginning of the show! It used to really scare me, much more so then Dark Shadows. Although I'm sure it wouldn't have the same reaction today! I did want to know if it was DVD but I guess that's considered a spoiler. If it was originally a Canadian TV series, I guess there is no way it would ever be rerun in the U.S. (Especially considering no one remembers it!) But at least now I know I'm not crazy!
