Solid suspenser with excellent performances by a superb all-star cast.
25 February 2001 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

Actor Darren McGavin made a stunning directorial debut with this suspenseful chiller about a series of gruesome murders in a small New England fishing village that end up having a bizarre connection to an adopted teen(Ron Howard) who is searching for his biological parents. The marvellous cast includes Cloris Leachman(as Howard's mother), Patricia Neal(as Howard's aunt), Bobby Darin, and Simon Oakland. The most memorable performance is given by Tessa Dahl, who not only plays Neal's daughter in the film, but is, in fact, her daughter in real life. Released to theatres as HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, LOVE GEORGE, the film was retitled RUN, STRANGER, RUN for home video release.
