Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 58-minute Touch of Death manages to pack quite a lot into its short lifespan. The action begins when a gang of crooks pulls off a huge heist. What the criminals don't know is that the loot has been treated with a deadly poison. Commandeering a houseboat, the bad guys terrorized the female occupant (Jan Waters) before they start dropping like flies. Director Lance Comfort wasn't what you could call inspired, but he sure knew how to sustain audience interest.
