Helena helpfully — or so she insists — decides to hire Carl to do up her own garden. The pace of the first two acts is much too leisurely, with the final act rushed and unsatisfying despite some out-of-left-field gore. The film could almost pass itself off as a TV movie with its commercial-ready fade outs and its rather chaste take on the exploitation-worthy material. The disc featured separate audio commentary tracks with Joe Dallessandro and director James H. Kay, as well as a featurette featuring the two and Katherine Houghton discussing the production Houghton points out that the filmmakers did not seem able to decide what kind of film it was meant to be. The Subversive transfer has had its colors pumped up to the point where the flora really pop offscreen while the actors all look sunburned, and the image is slightly less detailed in general looking like a Xerox copy. Not heeding the warning, Jody wanders onto the walnut farm of the Strickland family and meets lovely but lonely Melissa Emby Mellay. She asks him to stay for dinner and then to stay the night. Jody agrees to stay a few more days and discovers that not only do the townspeople think Melissa is a witch, but Melissa believes it as well and that her family is cursed.

The film was edited down for its appearance on Mystery Science Theater in Among the scenes edited were a conversation between Melissa and Lucinda, more graphic images of Lucinda killing the deputy, a conversation between Luther and Molly Strickland about Melissa and Jodie's relationship, and a scene where Melissa and Lucinda's father denounces them after the villagers attack. Most versions of The Touch of Satan edit some shots of nudity during the climatic love-making sequence - this includes the cuts shown on early VHS releases of the film and on the Mystery Science Theater episode. The re-release of the film entitled: Night of the Demon leaves the footage intact and includes a missing line of dialogue.

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 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.
Directed by James H. Proving no era produced weirder horror movies than the s, here comes a double feature of abstract, colorful films that barely fit within their genre. First up is Seeds of Evil , a macabre fantasy passed off on the '70s drive-in circuit as a nature-amuck film and also issued as a long-discontinued special edition DVD as The Gardener. The film first earned its place in the history books for the first non-Warhol-related lead role for actor Joe Dallesandro, the beefcake blank slate seen in Flesh, Trash, Heat, Blood for Dracula, and Flesh for Frankenstein. Colorful and often inscrutable, it's the kind of genre-mashing exercise that would be impossible to finance now but should bring a smile to anyone looking for something a bit different. In the curious prologue, an ailing woman in a hospital bed goes into hysterics and then dies when large, exotic flowers are brought into her room.
