A Tribute., 10 November 2005
Author: Cinema_Fan from An English Shire.

This is one of the funniest parodies of the horror genre I have ever seen, there is more than one horror genre parodied here, such as Frankenstein, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and the Werewolf for example, totally hilarious. This is the better produced, for me, of the Carry On family and written by Mr Talbot Rothwell, and released in 1966.

Mr Rothwell was born in 1916 and passed away in 1981; he started writing professionally around 1949, and before Carry On Screaming! He had put pen to paper for five Carry On's before this, such as..Cabby,..Jack,..Spying,..Cleo and Carry On Cowboy, amongst other works. It is the one-liners and clean but witty and imaginative innuendo's that really make this particular movie, like all the other Carry On's, but I feel that this is them at their zenith, ironically this film is without Sid James, the recognisable Face of the Carry On Establishment; British postcard humour at it's best.

Harry H. Corbett plays the lead role excellently as the bumbling police officer, with his even more so incompetent sidekick, the always-funny Peter Butterworth. The Mad Scientist here is, camp as always and utterly professional, Kenneth Williams, along with Jim Dale, Charles Hawerty, my personal favourite and Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw plus Jon "Doctor Who" Pertwee amongst others. With an array of British comedic writing and acting talent, that has been hard to surpass, but on a parallel with Python, Milligan and The Goons. This is classic British seaside humour that does not feed on the lowest common denominator of crude and vile sexism or racist language.

Directed by Gerald Thomas, who could be called Mister Carry On because he directed no more than twenty nine Carry On's, he was there at the very beginning with Carry On Sergeant in 1958 and the final, to date, the 1992 Carry On Columbus. Mr. Thomas passed away on the 9th of November 1993, aged 73.

Messer's Rothwell and Thomas are now a breed gone for ever, for, unfortunately, the time's have changed, compared to today's humour, that knows or only wants smut and gutter. If you really want to do them as well as yourself proud, then take up a Carry On movie. You never know, you could end up Carrying on Laughing.
