ae's leave color effect will desaturate all colors except a selected color.

however since red is common component of skin tones, it may be a bit difficult to isolate it. you could try using a different color, like a good chroma green, then key those elements and colorize them red and composite them bock onto the desaturated footage.

note, that the tint effect can often produce a better black and white effect from color footage than just removing saturation from it.

I'd say that since After Effects was used on that film to do exactly that, then the answer is certainly "yes".

Here's a pair of tutorials that show some of the basics:
