Halloween night. 1987. Paranormal researcher Frank Stewart and his team try to prove an abandoned home is haunted. A local network camera crew is along for the ride, taping the EVP recordings and call-in seance. After the broadcast, Stewart and his team vanish. Too good to be true? It is. A good premise for a movie? It definitely is. With the "WNUF Halloween Special," screening Friday at the Creative Alliance , Baltimore filmmakers Chris LaMartina and Jimmy George (well, they're technically dubbed "archivists" on this project)

WIMBLEDON, England -- Conchita Martinez grew up in Monzon, Spain. The daughter of a factory worker, she spent her days hitting tennis balls against the factory wall on a court her father, Cecilio, made for her.As she hit those balls, one harder than the next, she dreamed of her tennis idol. And the thoughts were so constant that she gave the wall a name -- Martina.Yesterday, when Martina Navratilova played her last Wimbledon, was Conchita Martinez across the net who ushered her idol off the Centre Court grass, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3."

"Witch's Brew," the latest effort from horrific Baltimore director Chris LaMartina, gets its world premiere at the Charles Theatre Wednesday night. The movie, filmed in and around Baltimore over the past two years, offers the twisted tale of a couple local brewmasters who run afoul of a witch. The results are predictably horrifying — especially to those unlucky enough to sample their "Slacker Lager. " As the movie's tagline so succinctly puts it, "Liver damage will be the LEAST of your problems.

NEW YORK -- Pam Shriver couldn't stop smiling or talking or rearranging the articles on the podium.She put the trophy on the table. She put the fresh flowers on top of the trophy. She moved the trophy and flowers. She grinned. She hugged Natalia Zvereva."This is so," she started and stopped. "This is terrific. This is one of the most special things in my career."What Shriver was so happy about was winning the women's doubles championship with Zvereva, yesterday, at the U.S. Open.They came in ranked 49th among 64 teams, but yesterday, they beat the No. 1-ranked team of Jana Novotna and Larisa Savchenko, 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (7-5)

I hardly have words for the beauty of the names I tasted last week in Puntarenas, on Costa Rica's pleasing Pacific coast, where surf touches the sun and the sea rushes to sand. To my ear, Spanish names are like music harkening from the heavens, blessed sounds that parents give their newborns, names singing to the ear. Just don't translate them into English, please. The operatic Placido Domingo roughly means "placid Sunday," Guillermo is simply William, but feel free to call me Diana, because I do like that.

Chris LaMartina has loved a good horror story for as long as he can remember. "My earliest memories are me demanding that my godmother sit down at the typewriter, and I'd say, 'All right, Lulu, sit down at the typewriter and I'm going to tell you a story,'" says LaMartina, who at 25 has four horror movies as a director on his resume, earning a reputation as one of Baltimore's favorite cinematic chillmeisters. "She still has all these stories, all typed up. They're all non sequiturs, just creepy image after creepy image.

When Martina Navratilova takes the court tonight in Pam Shriver's Mercantile Tennis Challenge at 1st Mariner Arena, tennis fans will see a woman who refuses to be limited by either age or society. "What I'm doing isn't rare," she said. "It has never been done before." She isn't talking about playing doubles with John McEnroe here, even though it is the first time in professional, charity or exhibition matches that has occurred. She is talking about being a vibrant, relevant competitor at age 49 - and next season at age 50. "I plan to play in my 50th year," she said.
