It's been a while since I read it, but basically 'vernacular cinema' to him is what the rest of the world would call a 'cult movie'. All the stuff that you thought it meant is Koven shoe-horning his background in folklore studies into it; rather muddying the waters to be honest.

No doubt someone will come along and tell me that I'm a plank and have completely missed the point.

i bought and read this a while back, then sold it on Amazon. I reordered it when I saw the £4 tag too, if only to sell it again when Amazon realize the error; but I don't suppose the book will ever turn up. All I remember about reading it was that Koven was saying that the italians who turned up to watch the giallos weren't that interested in following the film, and would often get up and move around, striking up conversations. the murder setpieces and nudity would shut them up for a bit. that's all I remember reading...but it was a while back
