A chance for revenge brings a hit man out of retirement in this crime drama directed by genre specialist Antonio Margheriti. Sal Leonardi is a well-connected American Mafioso who, while vacationing in Naples, visits a racetrack and is persuaded by good natured tout Angelo to put his money on a long shot. While Angelo sometimes works around the odds at the track by putting front-running horses off their stride with a pellet gun, in this case Angelo's horse wins without outside interference and pays off big, but after Sal collects his winnings, he's spotted by Gennare Gallo, a local mob boss who holds a grudge against Sal's partners. Back in New York, Leonardi's partners are eager to the score against Gallo, they approach Peter Marciani, a former hired killer who retired after the traumatic murder of his brother. Peter is persuaded to assassinate Gallo when he learns that the Italian mobster was behind the murder of his brother.

Yul Brynner as Peter Marciani Barbara Bouchet as Anny Martin Balsam as Commissario Massimo Ranieri as Angelo Giancarlo Sbragia as Gennaro Gallo Sal Borgese as Vincent Giacomo Furia as Brigadiere Cannavale Loris Bazzocchi as Pasquale Rosario Borelli as Gallo's henchman Luigi Bonos as Peppiniello Renzo Marignano as Doctor Tommaso Palladino as Gallo's henchman Antonio Margheriti's two films Death Rage and The Rip-Off were both starring big name foreign actors, but while The Squeeze was set in the United States with English-speaking cast, Death Rage was set in Naples. The film was shot on location in Naples; the action scenes in the film were shot by assistant director Ignazio Dolce. According to Margheriti's friend Giacomo Furia, the character actor playing the Commissioner's assistant in the film co-scripted it; the original story from the film came from director Silvio Siano. The script was written after Margheriti managed to cast Yul Brynner as the lead; as with other Italian genres film, it borrows from other popular films of the era, in this case The Mechanic.

According to Barbara Bouchet and herself did not get along on the set, stating that he treated the crew rudely. The film was Brynner's last screen role before he devoted himself to the stage. Brynner and Margheriti planned on making another film about game hunters in Africa set during World War I, but the film never entered production. Death Rage was distributed in Italy by Euro International Film, it was released on 22 October 1976 where it grossed a total of 630,234,524 Italian lire on its theatrical release. The film was released in the United Kingdom under the title Anger In His Eyes. Home video releases of the film in the 1980s remove the opening scene, only available in its complete form on an Italian DVD. A blu-ray was released by Dark Force Entertainment in February 2020. In a contemporary review, the Monthly Film Bulletin stated that the film was "short on plausibility" and "long on picturesque scene-setting and rhetorical optical effects." The review found the film's plot to be "no subsittute for suspense or cogent plotting."From retrospective reviews, AllMovie stated that the film "isn't afraid to play broad, as a consequence it feels more silly than suspenseful" and that "Margheriti has the good sense to keep the story moving forward at all times no matter what, for all its faults it's an entertaining bit of European crime fare."
