Plot Synopsis

DEALS FROM THE DARK SIDE follows Steve Santini and his crew -- sidekick Robert 'Biker Rob' Duguay and researcher Stef Proctor -- as they travel across North America in search of creepy and notorious artifacts for Steve's extensive collection of twisted treasures. Plus, they travel far and wide to call on experts to prove that the artifacts are (or aren't) what they're claimed to be, which is a critical step since many of Steve's collectibles are on loan to the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington, DC. In this series, the trio evaluates a chair the seller claims to be from the Titanic, Victorian handcuffs said to have been used by Harry Houdini, a Mohawk axe, a shrunken head, a replica Inquisition cloak that may turn out to be a bona fide original, and much more. Santini, dubbed the most extreme escape artist by Ripley's Believe It or Not, works with dangerous materials such as machete blades, power drills and water chambers as he perfects his craft in this most unique of hobbies. Biker Rob, the sidekick and spiritual advisor, met Santini when he was an apprentice welder and building an escape for Santini. Stef, the group's researcher and Santini protege, also is a guide for the ghost tours of Niagara-on-the-Lake and she runs her own store and teaches workshops on haunted houses. Syfy aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Wednesday, November 7, 2012, showing back-to-back episodes at 10pm ET/PT.
