This 'Power Rangers' fan film will ruin your childhood

Director Joseph Kahn's crazy-ass re-imagining is definitely not for kids.

Holy crap. Director Joseph Kahn and producer Adi Shankar have dropped a mind-blowing fan film "deboot" of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, of all things. Violent, bloody and most definitely rated R, Power/Rangers is a decidedly dark re-imagining of the squeaky clean 1990s kids sci-fi action series, with help from likes of James Van Der Beek, Katee Sackhoff and Will Yun Lee. This is not goofy rubber monster TV show you remember.

What happened to Power Rangers after they grew up and left their Zords behind? It's not pretty.

This is "not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition," says Kahn. He made it just becuz. Vimeo has taken down the super-bloody, super-nudity, NSFW version. But you get the idea:

Kahn makes it clear that he's absolutely not auditioning to take the helm of a Power Rangers movie.

"The irony here is that I wouldn't even want to make Power Rangers: The Movie for real. Like if I had to make a Power Rangers movie, this is it. It's 14 minutes long and it's violent and this is what I have in me. If they offered me the $200 million version, the PG-13 version, I literally wouldn't do it. It's just not interesting to me."

After watching this, there can be no other Power Rangers movie. I'm good.
