You're screwed. Just kidding. You can buy special drill bits that will back it out.

I hate ez-outs. They always seem to break off and just make it harder. Usually if I can get at enough of the reminants I'll mig or tig weld another screw/bolt/nut onto the broken/stripped one.

how big and what is it screwed into?
a left hand drill bit of the correct size often will take one out.

If the head broke so you cannot torque it with a screwdriver or allen wrench you can use a regular metal drill bit to drill the head off. Once the head is off you can remove whatever it is you need to remove then unscrew the remains with pliers. Make sure you have a replacement screw though!
