What is better than a film that stars Kane Hodder or Bill Moseley? A film that stars both of them! The duo of horror icons play Darryl (Moseley) and his little brother Jon Roy (Hodder). Old 37 is a twisted tale that is sure make you think twice about calling 911.
Old 37 was written by Paul Travers and Joe Landes, directed by Alan Smithee. Besides Hodder and Moseley, the film stars Jake Robinson, Sascha Knopf, Olivia Alexander, Brandi Cyrus and Kenneth Simmons.
There are not enough synonyms for “awesome” to use that would accurately convey how great this film is. It is original and chilling with a dash of comedy. For me, it brought back the Chop-Top Bill Moseley, many of the lines that he had reminded me of his lines from TCM 2 when they break into the radio station studio, I was waiting to hear “lick my plate you dog dick!“. Kane did what he does best, he destroyed people. It was a bit like watching him play a combination of Jason Voorhees and Victor Crowley, he was shy, silent and brutal. Combining Moseley’s humor with Hodder’s intensity make for the perfect storm.
Old 37 is a bit like a drama meets horror, it’s almost like watching two different films in one. More times than not, those types of films tend to fall apart and only leave the audience scratching their heads, but the different stories within Old 37 are blended perfectly to make up one awesome movie. The conflict within this film are endless, there is domestic violence, insanity, murder, revenge, betrayal, standard bitchy teenage behavior and so much more. What’s not to love?
The plot twists are insane. I saw a couple of them coming, but it was entertaining nonetheless,I enjoyed it and I am not going to hold it against the film. There were a few that did catch me of guard. Long time horror fans may see what is around the corner, but if you are newer to the genre, you are in for one twisted roller coaster ride.
The cast as a whole was phenomenal. There were veterans and some newer to the game, but everyone was so professional that it was difficult to tell the difference between them.
If you are into disturbing, revenge filled films, Old 37 is perfect. I loved the film and would love to see Travers write another film and include Moseley and Hodder, his writing combined with their talent and chemistry make for one hell of an awesome horror movie. I am going to have to recommend Old 37 to everyone that I know and you should probably tell a couple friends too.
