5.0 out of 5 stars devilishly disturbing, 10 Jan 2006
Box of the Banned is not for everyone. Infact, i could imagine that there is only a handful of people who look at this item, well ever buy it, and out of them, even less will ever enjoy it.
That's not to say that i am some elitist, but that this boxset contains a lot of material that many WILL find offensive.
The films themselves a refreshingly disturbing, and most of them contain a joyess nhillism that's not usually found in such abundance these days.
Highlights have to be the uncut versions of Zombie Flesh Eaters (AKA Zombi 2), and The Evil Dead. Both are classic films, both for different reasons. the notorioty of both bumps up the price of this boxset… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Music collides with me, 26 Nov 2004
If John's comeback record - To Record Only Water For Ten Days - made you gasp for breath and wonder where such a talent has been hiding, thne you'd better go grab a paper bag for this album. starting off strong with the awe-inspiring Carvel and getting stronger all the way. with the sum realy gems in here, next to musical interludes that'd fit in well in the Twilight Zone, this album shows you a new kind of singer/songwriter/guitarist mould and shows you where to shove it! with the help of Bycicle Thief's Josh Klinghoffer, John Frusciante has written an awesome pop record, with a darker side. it'd fit in well, with some early Weezer and "Green" era R.E.M. on your playlist. it's just… Read more
