Movie Info

This fast-paced Disney endeavor stars Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann as two adolescents with acute psychic powers. The kids are actually space aliens, but suffer from amnesia and are unaware of their origins. Pursued by greedy business-mogul Ray Milland, who wants to harness their special powers for his benefit, Kim and Ike are rescued by likeable camper Eddie Albert. He and the kids escape to the mountain of the title when Albert's RV suddenly acquires the power of flight. In 1978, the film spawned the sequel Return from Witch Mountain. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

A Disney adventure with quite a lot going for it, even if it does end up spreading itself too wide for the sakes of the entire family.

A Walt Disney production for children who will watch absolutely anything that moves.

Top Critic

A scifi thriller that's fun, that's cheerfully implausible, that's scary but not too scary, and it works.

provides adventure and excitement that children of all ages can enjoy, but it is not very perilous or violent at all

Audience Reviews for Escape to Witch Mountain

This is an okay kids movie, I saw it a long time ago when I was a kid, and I thought it was just okay then too. Maybe I should see it again someday?

Children with psychic abilities journey to discover their origins. Pleasant escapist children's fantasy is pure nostalgia for any adult who saw this movie in their youth.
