5.0 out of 5 stars Hammer Horror is murdered by the team., 28 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Carry On Screaming [DVD] [1966] (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!

Fenella Fielding had a small part in Carry on Regardless.
