Boobies or no Boobies
10 July 1999 | by SanDiegoSee all my reviews

Okay suspense movie reminded me of the old ABC Tuesday Night at the Movies of the early 1970's (Crowhaven Farm, People Under the Stairs, etc...) where a heroine (in this case Kim Richards) comes to a town where everybody and everything is "strange." Oooh. Not to much action or gore just a strange feeling. Kyle Richards, Kim's younger sister also appears in the movie. More interesting is that the story written and produced by Kim Richard's husband is a homage to Richard's Disney film "Escape to Witch Mountain" and the non-Richard's Disney film "Watcher in the Woods." Hence the tile "Escape," the opening credits, the plot about Richard's and her twin brother possessing ESP between each other, etc... A fine curiosity to add to anyone collecting those Disney films...with one warning...the opening sequence does contain an R-rated scene (a close up of big boobies bobbing) that is out of place to the rest of the film. They were a nice pair as boobies go (alas not of any Richards however). Catch "Escape" if it comes to commercial TV if you want it edited for your protection. If you want to see the boobies rent it.
