oil filter housing leak-HELP!!

Bad oil leak from somewhere around the oil filter housing...valve cover seems fine-looks like its coming from the 2 rear freeze plug things (back of filter housing). Can I seal these up and pop in a new gasket, or do i need a whole new filter housing?? VANOS line and pressure switch both look ok too. car is a '94 with M50 engine, 163k.
