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.

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

Audience Reviews for Carry On Screaming!

A horror-comedy that is a rather direct parody on the popular-at-the-time Hammer horror films. Several motifs are used with Jekyll, a mummy, Frankenstein-like regeneration, etc. This is the first of the Carry On films I had seen, and got pretty much what I expected. The humor is very British and probably quite lewd for the time. Fenella Fielding is super-hot as the voluptuous vampire.

Probably the best Carry on film along with Carry on Camping.

Frying tonight! Another quality Carry on movie if a little gaudy.
