What a Carve-Up!

The original British title for No Place Like Homicide was What a Carve-Up. This level of sophistication was maintained for the film itself, a horror film parody served up by members of the Carry On gang. There's a wisp of plot about an wealthy recluse who apparently dies, then equally apparently comes to life again to bump off his greedy relatives. For the most part, the scripters use the story as an excuse for irreverent and tasteless haunted-house gags. No Place Like Homicide was a remake of the deadly serious 1933 Boris Karloff vehicle The Ghoul, though a cursory comparison of the two films reveals precious little resemblance between them.
