Kenneth Williams is on good form here as the evil “Dr Watt”. He has a cunning plan not to turn shop mannequins into beautiful women, but exactly the reverse! His lethal sidekick “Oddbod” (Tom Clegg) is the one that procures his source material and the intrepid “Insp. Bung” (Harry H. Corbett) the sleuth charged by Scotland Yard with bringing this evil culprit to book. This is certainly one of the better in the series. It is more of a send-up of all things horror (and Hammer) with much less crass innuendo and silly double-entendre than with many of the other “Carry On” features. Corbett does most of his acting with his eyes and facial expressions and both Williams and Fenella Fielding deliver well atop a fine supporting cast of regular faces who all have their parts to play delivering a solid and amusing script at quite a pace for ninety minutes. The visual effects are straight from the supermarket condiments shelf, with maybe a little porridge and artex thrown in for good measure and Eric Rogers has written a jauntily eery score to help us through the faux jump moments. Not exactly laugh out loud, but it does parody the genre rather well and has stood the test of time fine. Don’t expect to be in the least scared, though!
Zombies that make you laugh
If you are looking for a zombie film, this will not satisfy you. Sure, it has zombies, but they are too busy devising double entendres and references to Abbott and Costello bits or other films to be gnawing on flesh.
Speaking of flesh, Fenella Fielding was just about the hottest vampire I could imagine for the day.
Her brother, played by Kenneth Williams, was a hoot. He played the gayest Dr Frankenstein character I ever saw.
I had never seen Jim Dale before, and he was excellent. I only knew Dale as the reader of the Harry Potter books. I spent many hours with him as i listened to all of them many times over. Now, I find that he is an excellent actor to boot.
If you like British comedy, and I certainly do, then this is one film you should see. I can’t wait to see more of them.
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. It transcends the Carry On series effortlessly, yet stays true to its roots. Parodying the horror genre that had become so popular in the mid-60s was a pretty brave move, especially as the Carry On series was at its zenith, but the gamble certainly paid off. Sid James and Barbara Windsor are both missing – it could have been suicidal, but their replacements Harry H Corbett and Fenella Fielding are simply stunning, giving tour-de-force comedy performances from a sparkling script that makes even the most dyed-in-the-wool Carry On fanatic forget James &Windsor’s absence. The plot is involving and suitably spooky, borrowing themes from a kaleidoscope of suspense and supernatural stories, seeming always to pick the best…… Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes, Edgar Allen Poe, even science fiction. The performances are unilaterally superb – Williams, Butterworth and Dale are effortlessly comedic, and Bernard Bresslaw is a gem as the undead butler.
This isn’t just the best Carry On film – it is, of course – it is NOT Camping, it is NOT Cleo, THIS is the best – it’s almost certainly the best British comedy of the 1950s and 1960s. So funny, so lovable, so authentic. All I could wish for is that Charles Hawtrey was in it more…. Although he wouldn’t have been in it at all if it weren’t that the American distributors asked them to put him in. God Bless America!
