"This film is truly unique. Cult classic is a term that is often overused, but Red Cockroaches is a film that leaves a lasting impression and I strongly feel will have staying power. Love it or hate it you will think about it long after the movie is over.
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!"
This is independent Filmmaking at its Finest

"RED COCKROACHES is a disturbing movie because of the subject matter and it makes a really big statement. A movie does not have to have millions of dollars or big name Actors to be really good.
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."

"The fact that this was made with consumer equipment and has bigger budget look makes it worth watching for the aspiring no-budget Feature maker but the plot is nothing more than shock masquerading as a compelling story."

"A man keeps running into a mysterious woman, at the train station, at a grave-site.
She has a French accent. Then she turns up at his mother's house as his long lost sister - only she's lost the accent. His infatuation with her continues and they have sex, knowing full well their own blood relationship. Other sex, more deviant is mostly hinted at... such as when Lily (first time actress Talia Rubel) asks her brother Adam (played by Adam Plotch) if he really loves her, that he'd accept anything from her body - then asks if he's thirsty.
Throughout the film cockroaches appear that glow red - for some reason I didn't follow. Another mystery is a friend of the man who appears with massive square reading glasses, a lot like "Brains" from the Thunderbirds, or Trevor Horn from the band "The Buggles""
