once on a civic I was having a hard time and the neighbour suggested to me punching a screwdriver through it to turn it out. It worked but that is a point of no return.
Same here. I punched like 20 holes on that thing.
I had to remove it with a sharp wood chisel.

Get a rag and use it to wipe clean the oil filter, use carb cleaner or any solvent if it's really dirty.
Use a rubber glove and make yourself as flexible as possible, get under there and have a good time.

Don't forget to oil the seal of the new filter or you will be going through the same thing on your next oil change.
