Like Escape to Witch Mountain, except with lots more blood.

The idea of a money-hungry villain keeping captive people with extraordinary powers is not new. I grew up watching tapes of Disney films made decades before my birth; Escape to Witch Mountain remains one of my favorites. Although similar in basic premise, The Mind's Eye has less innocence and more blood, but undoubtedly offers more excitement for fans of horror. Three years after the release of his film Being Human, which crossed science-fiction and horror genres, director Joe Begos returns with another creepy creation, which will open in the U.S. for the first time on Aug. 5. The film follows the two psychokinetic protagonists, as they try to escape the clutches of a deranged doctor intent on harvesting their powers. It's being shown at limited locations across the country, and (luckily) the Tampa Bay area has several screens.
