Old 37 Review
Synopsis:Two brothers intercept 911 calls in a beat up old ambulance to torture and kill helpless victims.
Old 37 (2015) is an American horror film that made me a little scared of how harsh life can be. We hear of people pretending to be officers and even driving vehicle resembling those of officers to do wrong things to innocent bystanders. It is crazy in the wildest manner to think that sick psychos can also do the same with the ambulance as this film portrays. I cannot imagine what it feels like for someone waiting for the ambulance after a tragic accident and instead encounters their worst nightmare. They are met by people in an ambulance to treat them in an awful way - I would not ever want to experience that. The film contains psychopaths, tortures, massacre, paramedics, multiple homicides, blood and gore, slasher killer, masked villain, redneck, blood splatter, butchery, female victims, disturbed child, disturbing images, traumatic childhood, abuse, and serial killers. Old 37 was shot in The Hamptons, Long Island, New York, USA, Speonk, Long Island, New York, USA and West Hampton Dunes, Long Island, New York, USA.
Old 37 revolves around sadistic brothers Jon Roy (Kane Hodder - Se7en (1995), Monster (2003), Frozen (2010), Jason X (2001)) and Darryl, who enjoys intercepting paramedic calls. Jon and Darryl (Bill Moseley - The Devil’s Rejects (2005), Army of Darkness (1992), Halloween (2007), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)) even has an old ambulance. They appear at accident scenes to dish out gruesome treatments to accident victims in their terrifying ambulance. The insane brothers come from a dysfunctional family from what I saw their childhood was like in scenes. Thier father was a psychotic abusive man that took his children with him while he tortured several victims from different scenes. Darryl did not stray too far away from his father as he performs dental procedures on his little brother Jon. Jon wears a leather mask because of his disfigurement that was received from Darryl.
The boys spend their days in their Dad’s auto scrap yard for unsuspecting drivers. Amy (Caitlin Harris - Adrift in Soho (2016), Over a Girl (2015), Messina High (2015), Love Scene (2013)) is very shy and trying her hardest to overcome her grief from losing her father and best friend within the year. Brooke (Olivia Alexander - Camp Takota (2014), Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt (2011), Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader (2012), Bikini Model Academy (2015)) is one mean person as she makes fun of Amy and makes her feel as though her life is meaningless. Skip forward and we see a rich group of kids racing down the road with their car and we can guess what happens next.
Old 37 is not a pure horror film but instead a dull slasher teen drama that takes too long to get to the point, in this case, the torturous killings/murders. The director did a bad job with character development as none of the characters become likable mainly because of their dull/terrible performances. The movie was somewhat entertaining but lacks excitement. There was too many plot holes, goofs, and a screenplay with several mishaps plus the director did not do an excellent job executing the movie either. There are a few scenes that did not make sense as well as poor performances from the actors.
