‘Don’t Worry I’m A Paramedic’: A Review Of Old 37


We’re reviewing the horror movie Old 37 with Bill Moseley and Kane Hodder, and letting horror fans know whether this is a flick they should be watching.

Parents influence their children more than they imagine. What they do and say can shape the child’s thinking and who they turn out to be. Children tend to mimic what they see their parents do as well, so when the sins of the father are relived through the sons those engulfed in the quake can reap the hellish outcomes.

And not in a good way.

Trust Issues

In times of panic and distress, our hope is high and our guard is low, especially when it appears that help and or assistance has arrived to help solve the issue at hand. When you’ve called 911 and the police or paramedics arrive we don’t question their validity outright. We trust them because we need and want their help. This is when we can become vulnerable to deception. But it doesn’t mean that we have to be ignorant and blind to the facts when our spidey senses are tingling!

Sins Of The Father

Old 37 is a tale about two brothers, John Roy and Darryl, played by powerhouse horror icons Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley. As children, they rode with their father Jimmy played by Kenneth Simmons on numerous ambulance calls. They’d witnessed death and destruction on a day to day basis, except for one thing. It wasn’t always the accidents that “dear old dad” responded to that had done these poor souls in, no, those that did survive regretfully ended up wishing they had died before Jimmy arrived to “help” them.

Everything Jimmy taught his sons stayed with them even into adulthood. When they took over Old 37 duties John Roy became the muscle and Darryl, the new mouthpiece always assuring his victims, ‘not to worry because he was a paramedic’. We don’t really know why their father did what he did, it was only briefly touched on. But I feel it was war-related and he just got a neverending taste for blood, literally.

Vengeful Psychopaths

Tragedy can at times bring out the best or the worst in a person. These guys exude the latter with fervor when local teens leave their mother Martha for dead after running her over. Martha played by Susan McBrien stood by her husband no matter what he did, but oftentimes had to step in to save the boys from their father’s wrath.

After his death, she was left to raise them alone. Finding their mother dying in the street made these already unhinged characters into vengeful psychopaths and set them both on a path of destruction.
