Lester Parson has a gambling problem. He also has a problem with killing. He weds and then kills off rich widowed middle-aged women in ultra-gory fashion to get their money as well for the joy of killing.
Though many fans are divided, generally "Touch of Death" is regarded as a better latter era Fulci film. The overdone black humor touches, unconvincing gore effects and baffling ending does turn off some fans.
Synapse Films originally passed on releasing "Touch of Death" on DVD when only video sources could be obtained as no original elements or prints could be located. This means the original elements either no longer exist or are temporarily lost. Despite only having video elements to work with, Media-Blasters subsidiary Shriek Show picked up the rights to release this film on DVD.
