From Victoria filmmaker Brian Clement ("Exhumed", “The Dead Inside”, “Meat Market 3”) comes the story of a writer's unwitting discovery of the history and secret efforts of a cult in Victoria, Canada that has been engaged in a 60 year effort to open a portal between our world and another, in an attempt to let in a host of vicious interdimensional beings. Once the cult takes hold of the writer he is thrown into a web of horror in which the line between fantasy and reality blurs, the city is enveloped in chaos, and the fate of the world rests in his hands.

The city of Victoria was rumoured in the 1980's to be the second worldwide "capital of Satanism" after Geneva, Switzerland. “Dark Paradox” explores the idea that this myth was not only partially true, but also partially inaccurate in suggesting the cult activity was "Satanic" when in fact it was based on the worship of ancient extraterrestrial "elder gods" in the vein of HP Lovecraft's fiction.

Dark Paradox stars Chuck Depape, Bronwyn Lee, Michael Farrell, Robin Thompson, and features Brian Clement in an acting role. Also featured are several burlesque performers including Victoria's Bettina May and Ricky Hard, along with Seattle's Tana the Tattooed Lady and BC Suicidegirl Jorryn. The film blends elements of 80's sci-fi and fantasy with 40's noir and classic cosmic horror for a terrifying adventure.

Between beauty and horror...is the Dark Paradox.


"Clement has taken all the successful elements of what makes a horror film highly watchable and skilfully integrated his own original script, inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, blended in some Lucio Fulci and unleashed upon his audience some great imagery, along with several moments of sheer quality...low budget film making at its finest." - cinema-nocturna.com

"Clement is able to ratchet up the tension and make the most out of some fine gore and several cool Lovecraftian monsters...a true testament of his love for independent filmmaking. Recommended." - canuxploitation.com
