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.
