Robert Dominici (Michael York) is a pianist who suffers from a genetic condition that causes him to physically age at a rapid pace and also to go mad. Distraught by his condition, Dominici goes on a killing spree. Inspector Datti (Donald Pleasence) sets off to catch him. Meanwhile, Dominici targets the Inspector's daughter, Gloria.
Deodato has stated that "I did Phantom of Death because it was based on a true element – the idea of growing old [...] And I got to work with Michael York and Donald Pleasence..."
On the film as a whole, he commented that "some parts look like an 'A' production. But it seemed too long in the final part." He also said that Edwige Fenech was miscast, and only included because the producer wanted her in the film.
