get some channel locks after it. if that doesnt work poke a screwdriver all the way through the filter and use it to twist off the filter

dude if u put a screwdriver through it and twisted and it still isnt moving...that thing is on there waaaaaay too tight

ur only option now i think is to completely mutilate it with channellocks...put some man into it lol

for future reference, they sell oil filters with 17mm hex heads welded to the top, kind of eliminates this problem
