Storyline

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 Nick Riganas

Great Creative Animation
5 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is rife with possibilities, showing that contemporary comic book art and stories could move into mainstream visual entertainment. The bizarre title sort of tells it all in that a disembodied robot head can be attached to a host of bodies. There are great villains and the plotsyn are surreal. I am a sucker for this as David Lynch's style is so attractive to me.
