Overview

The Fury meets The Misadventures of Merlin Jones in this comic-book sequel to Disney's Escape to Witch Mountain. Reprising their roles as the psychic siblings from another world are Kim Richards as Tia and Ike Eisenmann as Tony. Their Uncle Bene (Denver Pyle) gives the kids a treat by letting them vacation on planet Earth, and they make the most of it by immediately getting into hot water. It seems that arch-fiend Dr. Victor Gannon (Christopher Lee) and his Bette Davis-like accomplice, Letha (Bette Davis), are in the process of testing a mind-control device. They want to see if they can mentally save their cohort Sickle (Anthony James) from plunging to his death from atop a building. Tony spots Sickle's plunge and telekinetically saves him. When Dr. Gannon sees Tony's powers, he kidnaps him, hoping to utilize his otherworldly powers for his own nefarious purposes. Enlisting the aid of a collection of low-life youngsters (Christian Juttner, Brad Savage, Poindexter, and Jeffrey Jacquet), Tia uses her powers of telepathy to contact her brother and tries to rescue him from Gannon's clutches.

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.
