Holy Ice-hockey-Jesus-on-a-Pogo-stick. I can't believe the darkness in this short by Joseph Kahn, a "deboot" of the Power Rangers, as he calls it—a fan film, "not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition." A free fan film starring Katee Sackhoff, the iconic Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica.

As Kahn describes it:

This is a bootleg experiment not affiliated or endorsed by Saban Entertainment or Lionsgate nor is it selling any product. I claim no rights to any of the characters (don't send me any money, not kickstarted, this film is free). This is the NSFW version. An alternate safe version is on youtube.


Talking to HitFix, Kahn says that he has no interest in actually rebooting it in a full feature film (I'm sure someone at Hollywood is already salivating at the prospect):

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.
