I loved this film as a kid, and it was fun to re-watch as an adult. Ok, it's not going to win the award for the best film ever. It's definitely light Disney live action comparable to many of it's other 70s films. True, the original Escape To Witch Mountain was better, but this has some great moments of it's own. Also, it's got a fabulous cast, Bette Davis and Christopher Lee, and those incredible kids!!! Can you tell I like this film despite it's silliness?
What makes it all more special, are the extras. They are laid out kind of strangely, and if you don't look around, you could miss them. The highlight of these is the documentary, "Making the 'return' trip." If you wondered what ever happened to Kim and Iake, as well as the members of the gang (can you believe they actually grew up?), the crew, and director, they're all here. Thank you everyone at Disney for putting the extra effort into this release. Keep up the good work!
"RETURN FROM WITCH MOUNTAIN" is the long awaited sequel to "ESCAPE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN" (1975) and continue to be a family sci-fi film to utilize the latest special effects at that time and bring back popular British director John Hough and popular teen talents Ike Iesenmann and Kim Richards to reprise their role as the alien human brother and sister team who have supernatural abilities.
"RETURN FROM WITCH MOUNTAIN" focuses on the return of Tony and Tia to the planet Earth. The two haven't been back in several years, so they get the opportunity to have some rest and relaxation.
Meanwhile, a mad scientist named Victor (Christopher Lee) and Letha (Bette Davis) talk about how they should be making money. Letha was once a very rich woman but funded Victor's laboratory in order manipulate people and control them. Victor decides to put Letha's nephew Sickle (Anthony James) to a test by using a remote control device in which Victor talks on it and the person will follow his instructions. His first instruction is to have Sickle climb up a tall building and walk on the rooftop ledge and seeing how the remote control device is actually working on him.
Meanwhile, as Tony and Tia are being driven in their cab, the cab loses fuel prompting the taxi cab driver to get gas. While left alone, Tia's premonitions start kicking in to full gear as she senses a man who will fall to his death from falling from a building.Read more ›
