A young man meets a farm girl who is actually a witch.
One of a wave of witch/occult films that were produced in the late 60's and early 70's following the success of Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby (1968).
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.
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.
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.
