DEFECTIVE MAN! is the story of two co-workers who, after being injured in a chemical accident, become not-so-super heroes. After years of putting up with the two's new "traits," they finally get fired from their workplace (with severance) and start their own brand of low-impact law enforcement. Defective Man and his side-kick, Horn Dog, recruit a couple more heroes (Captain Orange-Piss and Bill Gill) and set out to save the world... well, at least Albuquerque... from the nefarious Hevvy Flo and her right hand man, Ronny Tobins. Hijinks ensue. Written by

We found the red-band trailer for this film via ex-Low Budget Pictures/new-Warlock Home Video's Facebook page, and being fans of micro-budget cinema were really interested in ordering.
If you're not put off by fine cheesy films fashioned with a fraction of the purse spent on a Troma film (watch the trailer, you'll get the feel), this one is definitely recommended. It is well-cast, the dialogue is smart, funny, and fast-paced, peppered with hat-tips to mainstream influences, and the flawed characters are endearing.
The fantastic Trent Haaga does steal several (very humorous) scenes, but he does that in most films he's in.
The filmmakers definitely put a great deal of love into the crafting of this film, and hopefully it'll find its audience.
