The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact.
On his way to California, Jodie decides on a whim to make a brief side trip to a farm, where he meets and falls in love with Melissa, the proverbial farmer's daughter. Or so it seems. In between the overlong dramatic pauses, we learn that Melissa is in fact a 120-year-old witch, and her remarkably spry "great-grandmother," Lucinda, is actually her sister, who has been pitchforking people to death in her spare time. When Lucinda murders a local policeman, things start to get real complicated for Jodie.Written by

Ellen Bailey, the film's associate director, also plays Melissa's real mother. Early in the film, Jodie walks out of Ellen's Cafe, which was also named after Bailey. See more »
During the finale of the movie when Jodie walks up to Melissa at the pond there is a long shot that shows him standing directly in front of her. In the reverse shot he is shown standing several feet from her. See more »

I am a friend and companion of the night. I rejoice in spilled blood and the baying of dogs. I wander among shades and tombs. I am Gorgo, and Mormo, of the thousand-faced moon.

In the version of this film that appeared on Mystery Science Theater 3000 there is a brief negative flaw in the closing credits. The cast begins to scroll up when suddenly the bottom of the credits drop and reappear. See more »
The version of The Touch of Satan released by Code Red distributing slightly differs from previous releases of the film. The original opening title shots where Jodie drives through the tunnel in his Maverick are cut and replaced with the title card "Night of the Demon" (an alternate re-release title from 1980). This particular cut also drops some lines from Jodie and Melissa's night-time conversation in the shed - likely the result of jump-cuts and film damage. The love-making scene is the most intact version available, including a shot of nudity and some dialogue that is edited from multiple releases of the film. Unfortunately this version also cuts the closing credits crawl and the film simply ends after the final shot fades. See more »
Much to my joy, I was looking for something on my MST3K videotapes this weekend, and I stumbled across this movie on one of them...a new MST3K that I had taped years ago and never watched! Joy! Ok, so I watched this movie, and it's honestly not that bad! Yes, it's a bit cheesy in a 1970s sort of way, and there are a few pauses when people are speaking, and there are lines like "This is where the fish live", but this movie is really not that awful! Watching a film like "Manos" or "Red Zone Cuba" without the MST3K treatment would make a person long for the sweet release of death, but I think I could have watched this film without the riffing and still have enjoyed it. I thought it was a decent movie. True, it had plotholes big enough to drive a barfed-on Charger through, but it was a pretty decent movie. And I have a HUGE crush on the main character, Melissa. Touched by Satan or not, she's a sweetie who only wanted to help her sister. :(
