Invasion of Privacy is a stylishly directed thriller from horror helmer Anthony Hickox that centers on the issues of paternal rights and abortion.

Basically three thrillers in one, the story starts with a whirlwind romance between young florist Theresa (Mili Avital) and Josh (Jonathan Schaech). Theresa discovers she is pregnant, and quickly also learns that Josh is violently unbalanced.

The action then switches to courtroom mode. Josh is aided by a steely lawyer (Charlotte Rampling) who beds her client and shrewdly works all the moral angles in his favor. Soon Josh becomes a national cause celebre, embraced by anti-abortion crusaders, while Theresa emerges as a heartless would-be baby killer.

The final stretch begins after the birth, as Josh insinuates himself into the picture via the child’s nanny, and a cop (David Keith) continues his efforts to prove Josh was responsible for two homicides.

Hickox keeps things cooking with lots of horror devices, sudden shocks and first-rate technical backup. Canadian cinematographer Peter Wunstorff’s work is handsomely lit and razor-sharp.
