Defective Debut

The Albuquerque-lensed superhero parody Defective Man! will have its premiere this Friday and Saturday, May 28 and 29, at Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE). The film is directed by D. Ryan Mowry and stars Paul Alsing, Arturo Negro, Stephen W. Eckles and Josh Saavedra. The gleefully campy, proudly lowbrow, resolutely Troma-esque comedy follows the adventures of an inept crime-fighting quartet led by an overweight, middle-aged superhero in Spandex. You can check out the yock-filled trailer by logging on to Screenings start at 10:30 p.m. Cast and crew will be there in person. This one’s been a long time in the making, so come show your hometown support and wallow in your love of trash cinema!

“Mall Cops: Mall of America” (TLC 8 p.m.) “We’ve got a 10-16 at the Orange Julius. I’m gonna need backup!”

“The OCD Project” (VH1 8 p.m.) VH1, trying to jump on the whole “Hoarders” bandwagon, creates a reality show about people with OCD. ... Wait. I don’t get it. This is VH1. Are these people with OCD hooking up in hot tubs or trying to sleep with Ray J? No? What’s the point?
