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

The first version screened was "Defective Man!: The You Can't Illegally Download It On Torrent Sites Yet Cut!", with a running time of 106 minutes. The final version trims over 15 minutes, including an entire subplot of the "heroes" going to South America because of a paternity case Capt. Orange-Piss is involved in. Lloyd Kaufman's scene was to appear as part of this subplot, and was removed from the final cut of the film. The subplot in its entirety is available on the DVD release from SB-Films. See more »
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.
