Its on as tight as it can go but still a little leak.The one I pulled off was pouring oil out of it
Do it with a filter wrench and see what happens. Make sure another gasket isn't stuck up there. Take a straight edge and make sure the sealing surface of the filter head is not warped. (never heard of it).
Make sure they're not cross threading.
Make sure it is the filter, and not something above the filter making it appear to be leaking.
