Enlisted in President Abraham Lincoln's secret service, the amazing agent Screw-On Head is the bravest and most dedicated operative, even though at first glance, he is nothing more than a disembodied mechanical head. However, with the exotic ability to screw itself onto a wide variety of robotic bodies, the Head is eager to accept missions his human colleagues don't even dare to pursue. Along with his faithful valet, Mr Groin, Screw-On Head goes on a mission to save America against the ghastly Emperor Zombie and his evil plan to unleash an ancient Demigod on earth. Can the mechanical super-spy foil the megalomaniac's schemes? Written by
I would see anything that was animated seeing as I am a big fan of the genre. I absolutely loved The Amazing Screw-On Head. The animation style is very detailed and because I haven't seen anything like it I'd also go as far to say it's unique. The story affectionately reminds one of the comic book style, and it goes at a cracking pace. The sound effects are always in place and never take away from The Amazing Screw-On Head's atmosphere. The humour is very off-beat and done in a hilariously witty way, helped by the snappy pacing. And there is a lot of it that you are in danger of missing something. The characters are wonderful right down to the inspired names, the monsters are instantly lovable, Screw-On Head is a hero one can identify with wholly and the villains are appropriately sinister without falling into stereotype land. The vocal characterisations are also spot on, Paul Giamatti and David Hyde Pierce have seldom disappointed and they certainly don't here with Pierce especially relishing his role.
Overall, a very aptly named animated short film...The Amazing Screw-On Head really is amazing. 10/10 Bethany Cox
