4.0 out of 5 stars Carry On Screaming Blu ray Edition 9 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
At last! A Carry On film on Blu ray! But does the transfer measure up? .......In my humble opinion, absolutely YES! This 1966 classic Hammer-horror spoof does something special for me when watching, it actually improves upon the Hammer formula by adding the 'Carry On' touch to the whole proceedings! I understand that the principal writer of the Carry On films at this period of time, Talbot Rothwell, personally suggested the idea for this film, and I think it shows in his incredible script. So what about Studio Canal's all important transfer? I viewed the film on a 40" TV, at the correct screen ratio, it was a satisfying experience, the 1080p were ably demonstrated throughout the films running time. I also have the 'Standard Definition' version of this film in my collection, and did a side-by-side comparison of each version. The early scenes featuring Jim Dale and Angela Douglas in Hocombe Woods, were noticeably soft in the SD version, but improved upon greatly in the new Blu ray release, although I felt, and this is only my opinion, that the same print source may have been deployed by Studio Canal for both versions, albeit with a genuine 1080p transfer! In conclusion; a rewarding experience, and a great choice for the first Carry On on Blu ray! I do hope Studio Canal decide to release more of the series in wonderful 1080p! In closing, just a small detail regarding the roman numerals at the start of the films' titles. Was it an in-joke? .....Surely the titles should have read MCMLXVI (1966) Whereas on the razor-sharp Blu ray version, I could see that they were,in fact, MCMXVI (1916!) An intentional joke or an error?

5.0 out of 5 stars carry on at its best. 23 July 2006
Format:VHS Tape
clearly meant as a spoof on the "hammer" horror films, this is one of my favourite carry ons. the fact that sid james isn't in it does not matter, as harry h. corbett makes for a wonderful replacement as a police officer investigating the disappearances of young women in a local park. corbett's performance is a joy to behold. equally good in the supporting cast, are kenneth williams as the mad scientist, jim dale as the nervous boyfriend of one of the missing women and peter butterworth as corbett's clumsy assistant.

for this particular carry on, a period setting was created and it looks extremely well done.

one hiliarious scene, is when corbett and dale are sharing a double bed when a snake worms its way through. unaware of this, the two of them are constantly woken up and accuse each other of all sorts...quite daring for the time.

included is kenneth william's famous "frying tonight!" dialogue, which is a standout in the film.

in true horror style, you get weird old houses, foggy woods, stalking monsters, secret chambers and plenty more besides.

don't miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hammer Horror is murdered by the team. 28 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
With Sidney James absent, Steptoe & Son's Harry H Corbett steps in for his one and only Carry On... This was the 12th entry in the series and the one that takes a bite out of the successful Hammer Horror series. Corbett is Inspector Bung an incompetent police man whos job it is to investigate the disappearance of girls in Hocombe Woods. His investigations lead him to the Bide A Wee Rest Home where he finds Valeria Watt (Fanella Fielding). Unbeknown to Bung she and her brother, the undead Dr Orlando Watt (Kenneth Williams) are "vitrifying" the girls and selling them as shop window dummies. The costumes, sets, music and acting are all spot on and this is one of the best in the series. It really was a golden age for the series and everyone was firing on all cylinders. We'd never see Fielding or Corbett in the series again which was a shame. There is excellent support from Charles Hawtrey, Jim Dale, Peter Butterworth, Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw and Angela Douglas. The best moments are between Corbett, Sims and their telephone!

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute scream....... 6 Aug 2008
Format:DVD
Absolutely loved this movie and I'm not much of a fan of Carry On. Harry H Corbett shows us amazing glimpses of his talent and genius as he hams it up with the rest of the crew. I heard that Sid James had originally been cast as the Sherlock Holmes character, but Harry was the best choice and his performance is polished and a joy to watch. Some wonderful set pieces which had me laughing out loud and the usual silly scenes we can expect from a Carry On movie. The story never gets tired and will appeal to all ages. I'm also sure that sultry Fenella Fielding could still cause a fashion stampede for replica red gowns.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was their finest hour..... 23 Oct 2001
By R. A. Caton TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
This has to be the best CarryOn ever made. It was the last made by Anglo Amalgamated before the series transferred to Rank and a gradual decline into smut; and it is a splendid parody of the contemporary Hammer Horror and of melodramatic thrillers in general. Harry H Corbett is superb as the laconic Det Sgt. Bung (a very fitting name) with Peter Butterworth as the bumbling Slobotham. Fenella Fielding brings a smoldering appeal to the screen while Jim Dale plays the gawky but gallant hero in a similar style to his Marshal P Knut in "Carry On Cowboy. I got the tape remembering what it had been like in the cinema; I was not disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 9 Nov 2003
By M. D. Hart VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Carry On Screaming is one of the best in the entire collection. Everybody loves a horror spoof, and they don't really come better than this. The whole Frankenstein-parody is cool, although I must say that they could have added a few other famous horror characters in here to really do the film justice. If there was ever a Carry On that could be altered span a three hour running time, this one would be at the top of the list.
Kenneth Williams is fantastic as always, and I just adore Fennela Fieldimg....she has to be the most beautiful woman in the Carry Ons.......Jim Dale is one of my favourite of the Carry On Team, and he plays his part very well here.
Now, there is some question as to whether or not Harry H Corbett did a good job of filling in Sid James' shoes. The answer is, he was doing no such thing. If Sid was in this Carry On (which I honestly wish he had been), I don't think Bung would have been his character. What a joy it would have been to see Corbett and James working together. If Only. The settings in this offering are brilliant.....the Bide-A-Wee rest home adding a very eerie potency to the atmosphere.
If you are an avid carry on fan, like I am, you have to buy this......if you don't, you are missing out on something very special......Joan Sims in plastic ;)
