Everybody want go heaven...but nobody want dead.
~ Screwface

Screwface is the main antagonist in the 1990 film Marked For Death.

He is portrayed by Basil Wallace.


Screwface carries himself in a majestic, almost unearthly manner, and speaks to his men in frightening sermons whether encouraging or reprimanding them. He gets his name from his monstrous, animal-like facial expressions. He has an explosive temper and is not above beating or killing his own men for their failures.

Screwface purports to have godlike shamanistic powers, which he uses to strike fear in the hearts of his men as well as his enemies. People believe that he can physically exist in several places at once, and thus is always watching everyone; in fact, he is actually a set of twin brothers posing as one man. As a result, his posse members are so scared of him they would rather fight to the death or kill themselves than face his unearthly wrath. Terrifying shamanistic magic rituals are his preferred method of executing his enemies. He almost always carries a sword concealed inside a shaman staff.


Screwface is a drug kingpin and the leader of a Jamaican "posse" (organized gang). After retired DEA agent John Hatcher returns to his family's neighborhood, he finds that Screwface's gang have taken over his territory. After Hatcher arrests one of Screwface's men, he and his gang take revenge by firing upon Hatcher's house and seriously injuring Hatcher's niece, Tracey. Hatcher becomes determined to kill Screwface and begins fighting back against the Jamaican Posse, leading him to be marked for death by Screwface himself.

Later, Hatcher discovers that the Jamaican Posse would flee if Screwface were to die, since he is widely believed to possess magical powers. As well as this, Hatcher is given a clue to Screwface's power: he has two heads and four eyes. After nearly being killed by Screwface with a Molotov Cocktail, Screwface returns to his mansion in Jamaica and Hatcher secretly tracks him with some of his accomplices. After locating the mansion, Hatcher kills many of Screwface's men but is eventually captured by Screwface. Before he can kill him, Hatcher breaks free and overpowers a sword-wielding Screwface, grabbing his weapon and using it to slice the drug lord's genitals before decapitating him.

Hatcher confronts the remaining members of the Jamaican Posse and displays Screwface's severed head to scare them into leaving his neighborhood. However, it is then revealed that "Screwface" is actually a set of identical twin brothers, and the one stationed in America is in fact the one responsible for the events that have transpired throughout the film. As Screwface appears and kills one of Hatcher's accomplices, his gang believe that his powers have allowed him to return from the dead and subsequently proceed to attack Hatcher. Once again, Hatcher kills many of the gang members before facing off against Screwface in a swordfight. After a fierce battle, Hatcher manages to slash Screwface across the face before gouging his eyes out, then finally kills him by breaking his back over his knee and hurling him down an elevator shaft, where he is impaled on a large spike.
