"One of the funniest Carry Ons ever!  Who is stealing virgins and turning them into shop-window mannequins?  What is the meaning of the gigantic hairy finger found at the scene of the latest crime?  What clues can the mad professor (Kenneth Williams) or his deathly pale and impossibly buxom sister (Fenella Fielding) provide to the hopeless Detective Bung (Harry H Corbett)?  Join the Carry On team including Charles Hawtrey, Bernard Bresslaw and Joan Sims as they chill your spine in this hair-raising spoof of the horror movie!"

The Story

Something strange is happening in the woods - young girls are being abducted by a huge mysterious creature. Detective Sergeant Bung and his assistant Slobotham are called in to investigate, aided by Albert, fianc? of the latest victim. The trail leads them to a dark country house, presided over by the sinister Doctor Watt....




One of the most consistently funny Carry Ons. The gags just don't stop coming in this one. Based loosely around the perennially enjoyable Hammer series of films, this is an affectionate spoof that has enough going for it to be able to stand on its own two feet. Special mention should go to Harry H Corbett, stepping into the leading role for this, his only Carry On, and doing so admirably; he fits in like he's been with the series since it began. Definitely one of the best.
