RED COCKROACHES is one of the most astounding and impressive debut films you will ever see! Shot on digital video, with editing and visual stylizing and effects done on director Miguel Coyulas Apple G4 computer, the seamless visual effects, distinct colorization, and stunning visual imagery makes the film feel like some sort of comic book alternate reality come to life. No shot is repeated in the entire film, and every scene has subtle or not so subtle digital visual effects.
Set in a New York of the near future, complete with flying cars and glowing red cockroaches, RED COCKROACHES is a mind bending and morally ambiguous astounding visual experience.
A man in his twenties meets a mysterious young woman who disrupts the banality of his day-to-day existence. Together, they will embark on an obsessive-destructive journey revealing dark family secrets and forbidden desires.
Mysterious and seductive, often disturbing, this unclassifiable piece of cinema offers very few answers as it plays with our genre expectations, taking us on a surreal journey with a devastating climax.
