Quando Alice Ruppe Lo Pecchio (which translates as When Alice Broke The Mirror rather than Touch of Death as it's better known to English speakers) was made around the same time as Sodoma's Ghost (1988) for the same producers. It's about a man with serious gambling issues who is compelled to date and murder rich women to fund his downwardly spiralling lifestyle. It would appear that his mind is losing its stability in the process, as he believes odd things are happening with his own shadows, conversations occur with himself, and most uncannily, people he has killed are indeed found dead - but not where he left them. Furthermore the police seem to be closing in as clues to his identity materialise on the News with alarming frequency.
The Dutch DVD from EC Entertainment gives us a soft, washed-out fullframe (framed as shot on 16mm) transfer, with optional English or Italian audio tracks. Thankfully there were English subtitles available, although the Italian track is in quite bad shape (I've heard forties films sounding better than this). Shriek Show released a DVD a couple of years after this one, looking much the same although featuring a more comprehensive package of extras. Make no mistake: this is not an excellent film, though I do feel there is enough of the macabre and weird here to save it from the dust-bin (garbage can if you're American).
