Head Twister is an illusion in which the assistant's head is covered with a box. While the head can be seen through the open front, it is twisted completely around.

It was later combined with the Disembodied Princess illusion to become known as Twister, in order to show the body all twisted afterwards.

Lewis also create a version in which the girl is put into a weird cabinet with her arms outstretched and the whole top part of her body is twisted around. [1]
