Escape to Witch Mountain

PLOT:

Tia and Tony are two orphaned youngsters with extraordinary powers. Lucas Deranian poses as their uncle in order to get the kids into the clutches of Deranian’s megalomanical boss, evil millionaire Aristotle Bolt, who wants to exploit them. Jason, a cynical widower, helps Tia and Tony “escape to witch mountain,” while at the same time Tia and Tony help Jason escape the pain of the loss of his wife.

What people are saying:

“A kid’s classic that’s remarkably mature for the age of its intended audience. Kids who have ever felt alienated or isolated will immediately connect with the film’s protagonists. Sadly the buildup is wasted on a weak, anti-climactic ending.” 3 1/2 stars

“One of Disney’s best non-animated movies. One of the first to embrace the whole “alien children” thing” 3 stars

“Ah, 70’s children films, how bizarre and laughable. But then again, I think these movies need to endure just for the sheer sake of quirkiness and bizarreness they bring.” 2 1/2 stars

“A classic Disney adventure that melds all its features together perfectly.” 4 stars

“All time fav movie as a child. I know it lacks in acting and I know it might be a lame premise, but the story was just so charming. And, when you’re a kid, this stuff is amazing!” 5 stars
