PRODUCT INFORMATION

Set against the backdrop of a futuristic New York City besieged by acid rain and populated with mutated insects and flying cars, bartender Adam (Adam Plotch) repeatedly encounters a mysterious and enchanting young woman (Talia Rubel) who leaves behind a tooth on the subway, triggering an obsession that quickly disrupts the overall banality of his day to day existence. This enigma slowly begins reappearing in different aspects of Adam’s life; as a prospective roommate, during a graveyard tryst, and eventually as his long lost sister who’s recently awoken from a coma after being presumed dead in a car wreck ten years prior. Oddly, this new found revelation of sibling kinship does not bring a stop to the couples’ lustful impulses and sexually charged mind games, eventually leading to a blood soaked climax fueled by repressed familial abuse, fast food foreplay, and the ever watchful eye of the ominous DNA 21 Corporation.

Armed with a $2,000 budget and a Canon GL1 camcorder, visionary Cuban born director (and recipient of the 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship) Miguel Coyula (Memories of Overdevelopment, Blue Heart) lensed this button pushing, mind-bending, surrealist Sci-Fi arthouse masterpiece (the first of a proposed trilogy), shooting solely on weekends over the course of two years in New York while attending the Strasberg Institute. The winner of over 20 film festival awards (including the top prizes at the 2004 DIFF and Microcinema Fest), Red Cockroaches remains a triumph of DIY and micro-budget video filmmaking, notable for its striking visuals, unique film language, and stylistic nods to the modern surrealist masters like David Lynch and Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Shipping

No, we only ship inside the US

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.

We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.

Product

All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.

Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.

Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.

If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.

Other

We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
