Another good one from the pen of Larry Cohen
1 May 2000 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

For a guy whose name is synonomous with the word psychotronic, screenwriter and sometime director Larry Cohen almost always delivers the political goods. He took on the FBI in The Life and Times of J Edgar Hoover, out of control police in Maniac Cop (a series that needs resurrecting in these days of Reichsfuhrer Giuliani), religious mania in God Told Me To, and, er, giant flying reptiles in Q. Invasion of Privacy echoes back to Cohen's It's Alive, only this time the monster isn't the baby, it's the father. What could have been another trite 'my spouse is an axe-wielding wacko and I found out too late' straight to cable exercise is actually a very interesting look at abortion, men's 'rights', and 'family values' in contemporary America. Recommended.
