Two brothers intercept 911 calls in a beat up old ambulance to torture and kill helpless victims.
As the film opens it is 1977 and it introduces us to Darryl, Jon Roy and their sick and twisted father who intercepts 911 calls and takes out his ambulance, the Old 37 to create carnage on unsuspecting victims. After that the film jumps ahead to present day where we meet Amy, a beautiful young lady who is mourning along with her mother the recent passing of her father. Another thing we find out right away is that Amy doesn't fit in the with "in crowd." Her best friend stopped hanging out with her to blend in with the group and Amy really wants to be accepted so much that she plans on having breast surgery to help in doing so. What makes you kind of anger is the fact that Amy is a beautiful and smart young lady that doesn't need to change anything about herself and you hate to see her being so hard on herself.
The film jumps between the two crazy brothers and Amy but you know their paths will cross at some point in the movie. I am not going to go into any major plot details here so not to ruin the film for those wanting to see it but I will say that it was a much better film than I expected it to be. And that is not a diss, I did expect the film to be decent but what I didn't expect was such a clever and original slasher film that didn't rely on blood and guts alone. There are a couple good stories going on at the same time and the film makers did a great job using flashbacks to fill in the gaps.
The film also contains a number of twists, one of which I never saw coming. And then there is the cast, You can't go wrong when you have two horror legends like Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley as the film's villains and back them up with the likes of Brandi Cyrus and Caitlin Harris who is stellar as Amy and you have yourself a film to be proud of. There is so much to like about "Old 37," there is plenty of brutal and bloody violence, there's also a dramatic side to the story and there's even some very funny lines in the film as well.
So if you are a horror fan you owe it to yourself to check out this bloody and fun ride that has a well-told story and characters you actually care about. It is the complete package. Bravo to Writer, Paul Travers and Director, Alan Smithee for making such a fun horror film. "Old 37" is going to run you over with fear and you will be glad it did.
