Movie Info

This episode of the long-running British comedy series parodies horror movies as it follows the exploits of bumbling private eyes in pursuit of two monsters. They soon find themselves in Dr. Watt's terrible castle. Doc Watt, a ghoul returned to life and his seductive sister amuse themselves by kidnapping pretty girls and turning them into department store dummies.

Critic Reviews for Carry On Screaming!

All Critics (6) | 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.

Apart from an engaging performance by Jim Dale, this is glum stuff even by Carry On standards.

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

Sometimes funny.

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!

Not a bad Carry On, More stupid than the others, Just not as funny and it was darker than the others too.

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

Harry H. Corbett is a worthy addition to the usual faces in an affectionate spoof of the old Bela Lugosi and Vincent Price horror movies. One of the better Carry On efforts, and who could not be charmed by Fenella Fielding's seductive tones?!
