Exclamation Can't remove oil filter!

My dumb self must have tightened the oil filter on way too tight last time , and I can't get it off for the life of me. I've tried the metal strap tool, the nylon strap tool, and broke 2 screwdrivers trying to just twist the filter off with the screwdriver. I was wondering if I could remove the oil filter housing without getting into the oil cooler and all of that mess, or if theres an easier way to get it off. Thank you!

That's good cause I'm not sure how hard it would have been to remove oil cooler with the filter hanging on it.
