Near the beginning of the movie the two children and Uncle Bene are walking away from the Rose Bowl. As the camera pans back you can see crosses marked on the ground for where the actors are supposed to stand and walk. See more »
Sequel to Escape from Witch Mountain has the two kids from that film returning for a visit. It doesn't take long before they're once again in trouble with people interested in them for their powers (which are called 'energizing' in this one). Decent follow-up to a great film that unfortunately doesn't match up to the original. Returning from the first movie are stars Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann, as well as Denver Pyle. Pyle's full-on Uncle Jesse at this point with his look. The movie sadly does not feature the return of Eddie Albert, Ray Milland, and Donald Pleasence. Albert is especially missed. His character was the emotional connection between the kids and this world so it would have made sense if they returned for a visit, it would be to see him. So it's disappointing he isn't in this or even mentioned. What we do get are screen legends Bette Davis and Christopher Lee, as well as a group of street yutes called the Earthquake Gang.
Richards and Eisenmann are fine but they're outshone by the vets in this one. Lee and Davis are both good, with Davis turning in a particularly fun performance. The movie's never dull when she's on screen. Director John Hough helmed both the first film and this one. He would later direct the Disney horror movie The Watcher in the Woods, which also starred Bette Davis and Kim Richards' younger sister Kyle. The special effects aren't terribly impressive but most of them aren't embarrassing, either. A lot of wire work and rear projection stuff. It's a kids movie, so go in expecting a certain degree of corniness. The first one was, too, but it had a little more maturity about it than this. All the kid gang stuff is a little silly but harmless and amusing. Like I said before, it's a decent sequel but not as good as Escape to Witch Mountain. There's more goofy comedy this time which might turn off some grown-ups. But it's worth a look if you're a fan of the first movie or a fan of Bette Davis and Christopher Lee. Also worth a look to see "Barney Miller" actor Jack Soo having fun in his last movie role before his death.
