Critic Reviews for Carry On Screaming!

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

This 12th of the franchise shows that the series could also tackle satire, as well as the tits and bum humour.

Gerald Thomas' direction as usual is assured, though some of the gags and situations would be helped by speeding up via more ruthless trimming.

March 26, 2009 | Full Review… accessible spoof of Hammer Films and a particular kind of Gothic storytelling...

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.

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