Well, if you're willing to destroy the screw, you can grab the screw head in a pair of vise grips. Probably not a bad idea to give it a squirt of Liquid Wrench first and then waiting a few minutes before attempting to turn the screw. This will minimize the possibility of shearing off the screw head in the event that it is corroded in place.
