Audience Reviews for Amazing Screw-On Head

It doesn't get anymore surreal than to hear President Lincoln say, "Screw-On Head, calling Screw-On Head." It's deliriously weird, off beatly funny and has some of the best animation ever. Of course it doesn't hurt that I'm already a fan of Paul Giamatti and especially David Hyde-Pierce. Only problem is it's only 22 minutes long!!
Figures SciFi Channel didn't pick this show up.

[font=Century Gothic]"Amazing Screw-On Head" starts in 1862 with Professor Faust being kidnapped by a monkey and two old women, one of whom is a lycanthrope.(But please don't hold that against her.) President Lincoln assigns his top agent, Screw-On Head, to the case.[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]Written by Bryan Fuller and based on the comic book by Mike Mignola, "Amazing Screw-On Head" is an immensely entertaining animated movie, containing all sorts of undead and enough steampunk to make a geek like me very happy. It is also a deliciously warped alternate history. And Paul Giamatti gets to be the hero for once!(Yes, it's only his voice but still...) My only complaint is that it is only 22 minutes long.

I really wish that this had been made into a series, it perfectly captures the feeling of Mignola's comic art to a 'T'. Giamatti does great voice work here and David Hyde Pierce is so very casual as Emperor Zombie.

Well worth a look, definitely recommended for fans of the comics.
