I grant you, it's not straight-up horror in the strictest sense, but there's enough strange stuff going on that I'm sure you'll be uneasy for most of it.

Film Threat

The best way to describe Red Cockroaches is unattractive people doing vague things for no apparent reason.

I leave it up you to decide whether or not this film is worthy of praise, or just a squirt with a can of Raid.

Full Review… | August 19, 2005

Worth a look for its bravura, which should endear the movie most of all to prospective filmmakers with maxed-out credit cards and heads full of dreams.

This is one of the best indie films I've seen. The entire movie was done on virtually no budget! Amazing! I can't wait for the sequels!
