A struggling seaside resort – Fircombe – hosts a beauty contest to attract visitors. Tatty late series entry, from the third – holiday-based – cycle of Carry On flicks. Either harmless picture postcard fun or a relic from a bygone age: a stagey sex farce that’s fascinating if not that funny.
The daughter of an Egyptologist is being groomed as a reincarnation of a deity. Claustrophobic adaptation of Stoker’s The Jewel of Seven Stars. Alternately tatty, mod, and mesmerising, the film has effective elements and a fun cast, while working with clearly restricted resources. The Awakening is another version.
