Sean Kelly

Classic Thoughts: Escape to Witch Mountain

With the pseudo-remake Race to Witch Mountain opening this weekend, I thought I would reminisce about the original, which I saw years ago and I can only really remember the basic plot outline.

Looking at the trailer for the new film, you can see that they are revealing straight out that the kids are extraterrestrials. However, with this film, you just know that the kids have psychic powers and it's not revealed that they are aliens until the very end.

This film is considered one of the classic Disney films and it is probably worth seeing before checking out the more high-action remake.

8/10
