Movie Info

The banal existence of a city-dwelling man in his twenties is forever shattered upon meeting a mysterious woman in this expressionistic, futuristic thriller from underground Cuban filmmaker Miguel Coyula. In a city ravaged by acid rain and overrun by mysterious crimson cockroaches, life is spent under the constant watch of the omnipresent DNA21 Corporation. Following the haunting appearance of his long-dead sister on a subway platform, a bored young man and his strange companion embark on a surreal journey into the secrets of their family past where nothing is taboo and the oppressive forces of the outside world watch his every move.

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.

Folks who are looking for something odd and different are highly recommended to check this out.

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.

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.

Audience Reviews for Red Cockroaches

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!
