    It's streaming on Netflix now. Big bloated Ray Milland, Eddie Albert with a bouffant, Donald Pleasence -- why, I don't think he ever made a bad film!

    :jj: I watched it last weekend--it's good, but also a little creepy an old man will drive two kids around so willingly

    he was also strangely lacking in curiosity about their powers

    I also couldn't figure out why he left them in that town where they were jailed, or why their escape plan was so convoluted

    I also found it strange the posse was so eager to go out to murder two children when they didnt even see them use their powers

    Is that the one with the girl who is now on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?

    By the way I love Donald Pleasence. The first Halloween is one of my favorite horror films.

    I kind of like it. I might get really stoned this weekend and watch Christmas movies. I recently watched this classic as well.

    Would never have even asked to watch it.

    My ma would have lectured me for an hour about how stuff like that is "of the occult" and I'm "letting Satan in"

    better uses for my time, even in the young years....

    I think he was going to dump the kids off so they could get to his brother's house....he would kick them out really quickly and Donald Pleasence would catch up in time to see the RV but not that the kids had run away, and follow the RV, which makes no sense because the RV was going to also go to the brother's house. :wtf:

    Return to Witch Mountain has a nice scary Bette Davis but I don't think that's on Netflix.
