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.
.


Sounds about right, it was rather a confusing read for me. Be interesting to hear other peoples thoughts on the book though.

Did you post the same thing earlier or have I started having premonitions?

Genuinely suprised to get my post today and find a copy of La Dolce Morte from Amazon, charged at £4.00 delivered! Didn't think it would ever turn up, but here it is. I'll give it another read, but a quick flick through confirms that it was an academic as I remembered, but then that it does claim to be the first academic study of the giallo. Anyway, it's still on Amazon at the same price.

Mine arrived on Saturday as well, not much fun to read. I'm a film student so I'm used to reading bone-dry academic film theory from the likes of Barthes and Foucault, and this was along similar lines. It in no way will add anything to your enjoyment of watching these films. Also, by his own admission, the author only refers to a handful of titles by about 25 directors, which seems like an awful small number of films on which to mount a study of the genre.
