Trivia

When shooting a scene involving a green plastic gun (sprayed with black paint) on an upstate New York highway, two police cars arrived. They had received calls from drivers passing by saying. "There is a maniac in a orange suit pointing with a gun at a girl." The fact that it was a one man crew with such a small digital camera, generated the wrong idea. The policemen stormed out of the cars and handcuffed everybody. Later one of the officers realized that it was a movie when he discovered the small MiniDV camera. The scene was never used in the final cut. See more »

Quotes

Bill Harris: I didn't know you had such a lovely sister in Paris.
Adam Zarrasky: Neither did I.

S10 Reviews: Red Cockroaches (2004)
9 January 2006 | by (The Void) – See all my reviews

This surreal indie features a young man living in New York in the not-to-distant future. Acid rain plagues the city making people nuts and the titular title creatures. The man runs into an intriguing woman on the subway but when he tries to talk to her all that is left is a strange tooth. Later the woman becomes his roommate and it all get's absolutely bizarre from there.

Red Cockroaches touches on a gamut of topics least of which is incest. Pretty nuts but it's a very good flick otherwise. Very well made and acted on a shoestring.
