Trivia

First of five "Witch Mountain" movies. This movie was made and released about three before its sequel Return from Witch Mountain (1978). Later came the second sequel, 1982's made-for-television Beyond Witch Mountain (1982), then a 1995 TV remake of the original, Escape to Witch Mountain (1995), then another remake, 2009's cinema movie Race to Witch Mountain (2009).

Goofs

The gasoline attendant is shown filling up the Winnebago through the heater exhaust. The gasoline fill cap on this model is on the other side of the vehicle, just behind the rear wheel. Were the attendant to peer through the window on the driver's side, there would be no "perfect" place for the children to hide and still hear Jason when he re-enters the vehicle. See more »

Quotes

Tia Malone: He just likes to yell a lot, he's not really that mean.
Tony Malone: You've got to be kidding me.

Wonderful Film
27 September 2003 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was thrilled to see one of my favourite films, as a child, released on to DVD. I can now share some of my childhood with my own kids. No big surprise, but my older daughter (7) loves it. My younger daughter (2) thought some parts were "scary daddy"; the broom/jail scene was well done! Highly recommend it as a family film for folks that want a nice movie to watch with their kids.
