About the Movie

A vehicle floats in midair...a coat rack comes to life and attacks a sheriff...and wild animals are putty in the hands of Tony and Tia Malone in Disney's thrilling fantasy adventure about psychic powers of two young orphans. Their clairvoyance prompts evil millionaire Aristotle Bolt (Ray Milland) to lure them to his mansion to exploit their powers. While escaping, they meet a friendly camper (Eddie Albert) and begin to unravel the mystery of their origin. Soon, all three are fleeing townspeople who have branded the children witches. But then IT happens! Someone with even greater powers takes over and leads the children - and the audience - into a dazzling and unexpected that is truly out of this world!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A Walt Disney production for children who will watch absolutely anything that moves. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Mar 9, 2009

Fresh: A scifi thriller that's fun, that's cheerfully implausible, that's scary but not too scary, and it works. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: 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. – Time Out, Mar 9, 2009

Re-living A Drive-In Memory... It's As Great as I Remember!

Ahhh, sometimes the best thing about re-makes is that it reminds you to check out a great movie from your youth. I remember seeing this one in both the local movie theatre and the drive-in. Why doesn't Disney make movies like this anymore? This is a real classic that might just even appeal to today's kids, but who knows. For me, what great fun to see it again, I remember so many scenes and it brought back so many memories. This was a lot of fun. Hard to believe it's over 30 years now. Enjoy!

Great Movie

This was a wonderful movie. I have seen this movie numerous times and never gotten bored of it. I really recommend it!!! :) If you have seen the remake and liked it then maybe you will like this also.

the real escape

This original was SOOOO much better than the remake!!! Loved this movie as a kid and still do. The new one has no imagination or wonderment as this one did. I think even the special effects are better here!! You gotta see this one.. :)
