Kolchak directs Frau Blücher, a singer and Opie in a hokey thriller
20 August 2013 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

When I picked up the box and saw who the cast is (and who the director is), "Happy Mother's Day, Love George" (also called "Run Stranger Run") looked very interesting. It turned out to be a pretty hokey movie, with Ron Howard as a teenager given up for adoption looking for his father in a New England town. It was definitely interesting to see Howard play a role very unlike any of the ones for which he's known, and it's not a bad movie or anything, just kind of corny. Also starring are Patricia Neal's daughter Tessa (whom she had with Roald Dahl), and Simon Oakland (the psychiatrist at the end of "Psycho").

Yeah, who would've predicted the "Dream Lover" singer appearing in a thriller? Then again, who would've predicted his ex wife Sandra Dee starring in an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's book "The Dunwich Horror"?
