Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 164: Sat Jun 13

Carry On Screaming (Thomas, 1966): Cinema Museum, 5pm


The twelfth in the ‘Carry On’ series is a parody of classic Hammer Horror films and features regular cast members Kenneth Williams, Jim Dale, Charles Hawtrey and Joan Sims plus Fenella Fielding as Valeria Watt. Fielding will be making a personal appearance at 7.30pm (separate ticket required).

Time Out review:
Britain’s best loved low-budget comedy outfit pays tribute to its best loved low-budget horror outfit: the Hammer studio. The twelfth movie in the ‘Carry On’ series revolves around monsters and mad scientists in Edwardian London, features perfectly over-the-top performances from Kenneth Williams and Harry H Corbett (standing in for an unavailable Sid James) and lovingly sends up the lurid style and torrid blood-letting of the Hammer crowd. It's surprisingly scary, too.
