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.

The film is full of dazzling visual imagery and stunning colorization...it feels at times a bit like Sin City, other times more like Mulholland Drive, and other times like nothing I've ever seen! The editing is incredibly creative, the acting is strong, and the movie grabs your attention from the opening shot of a futuristic NY skyline all the way to a very jarring climax.
This movie is creating a lot of buzz and after seeing the film I know why. Do yourself a favor and check this movie out!
When you consider how Writer/Director/Producer/Editor/ComposerMiguel Coyula made this movie for only $2000, the man is nothing short of a brilliant filmmaker. I'm in awe of his talent and skills and of the talented Actors in the film. GREAT JOB! A fantastic, surreal, disturbing, odd, artistic gem of a film.
