Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
A stellar cast of venerable character actors lends a touch of class to this 1975 Walt Disney live-action fantasy adventure about orphaned siblings Tony and Tia, who possess strange psychic and telekinetic gifts that they do not fully understand. Are they, in the words of a bullying classmate, "a couple of weirdos," or are their wondrous powers literally out of this world? Ray Milland stars as Bolt, a ruthless millionaire who wants to greedily harness their "sixth-sense incidents," Eddie Albert costars as the "impatient, selfish" curmudgeon in whose mobile home the young runaways escape from Bolt. What begins as intriguingly eerie descends in the last reel to supernatural slapstick, as Tony and Tia conjure up nonviolent ways to thwart their foolish adult pursuers, from mind-melding with a bear to flipping a helicopter. With its nifty stop-motion special effects, this is true escapist entertainment.
All Movie Guide
One would not normally think of using the words "Disney" and "thriller" in the same sentence but Escape To Witch Mountain is a happy exception to that idea. Though geared towards a younger audience, the script never cops out or talks down to its viewers -- instead, it delivers an engaging mystery story paced with plenty of effects-laden setpieces. Escape To Witch Mountain benefits greatly from the confident direction of John Hough, who brings the thriller-crafting skills he developed on films like The Legend Of Hell House and Dirty Mary Crazy Larry into play here. He gives the film a bracing style full of mobile camerawork -- the many car-chase scenes are truly thrilling thanks to the visceral visual style - and effective editing that grabs the viewer's attention (the latter aspect is best illustrated through Tia's frequent flashbacks). It's a pleasant surprise that he shows a nice talent for Disney-style whimsy, as well: the best example is a delightful scene where Tony uses his telekinetic ability to bring a roomful of marionettes to life. That said, Escape To Witch Mountain's appeal is sealed by a series of excellent performances: Ike Eisenmann and Kim Richards make a charismatic, down-to-earth pair of young heroes while Eddie Albert adds gruff charm as their reluctant protector and Ray Milland and Donald Pleasance make a slyly menacing pair of villains. To sum up, Escape To Witch Mountain is one of Disney's best live-action efforts from the 1970's and a thriller that adults can enjoy along with their kids.

    I Still Love This Movie!

    Escape to Witch Mountain is one of my favorite Disney movies! I first saw it in a movie theater when I was around 9 or 10 years old and I have very fond memories of this cute, charming movie! When I found out that this movie was on DVD I bought it and I really had a good time watching it again! Kim Richards, Ike Eisenmann and Eddie Albert are all still wonderful and I recommend this movie!

    I can't believe it!!!

    I loved this movie as a child and everyone I have asked about it looked at me like I had three heads. No one has ever known what on earth I was talking about! Now, finally, it's on DVD and I am so excited!!! This is as wonderful as when I finally proved to my husband the Disney short - ''The Old Mill'' really existed - when it came out on the special edition Cartoon shorts DVD called ''Walt Disney Treasures: Silly Symphonies''.
