Critic Reviews for Carry On Screaming!

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Gerald Thomas' direction as usual is assured, though some of the gags and situations would be helped by speeding up via more ruthless trimming.

Behind the pantomime overacting and the playground gags is a creepy horror homage that gets all the details right.

Sometimes funny.

TV Guide

This 12th of the franchise shows that the series could also tackle satire, as well as the tits and bum humour.

Empire Magazine

An impeccable send-up of Hammer and Universal horror films by the Carry On gang.
