Movies featuring a bunch of profoundly disturbed people dominate today's TV schedule. What better way to celebrate the Saturday before Halloween? That most messed-up of mama's boys, Norman Bates, gets to show off his prowess with a knife in Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece of horror, suspense and misdirection, Psycho (8 p.m., TCM). The 1960 film, made cheap and fast by the unit that worked with Hitchcock on his television show, packs more surprises than a truckload of Cracker Jacks. But often overlooked is the mastery of Anthony Perkins' performance as Norman.

The first words we hear in "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers" are "Oh my God, don't hurt me."The plea is sobbed by a woman somewhere back in the shadows. We never see her, we never know what happens to her, but if she's like the rest of us, the movie showed her no mercy.This is the sixth "Halloween" movie. The 1978 original is held up as the slasher archetype, praised for director John Carpenter's sense of suspense and timing. But at this point in "Halloween" de-evolution, suspense has long since been replaced by gore, ++ and timing now is a matter of zooming in on a head just as it explodes.

Halloween has everything you could want in an updated slasher movie, as long as you're not a homicidally slavish purist. Writer-director Rob Zombie spends the first third of the remake immersing us in the dreadful childhood of Michael Myers (played as a boy by Daeg Faerch), then copies most of the plot and some of the key moments from John Carpenter's original chiller - but not all of them, and the hard-rockin' director puts his own spin on many of the classic bits.

This'll make you all warm and fuzzy: Baltimore Gas & Electric, which last week announced a merger with Potomac Electric and the movement of its corporate headquarters out of downtown Baltimore, has pledged $50,000 to help fund the Downtown Partnership's "latest business retention and growth initiatives." In press release, a BGE veep is quoted as saying, "This award illustrates BGE's steadfast commitment to the prosperity of downtown Baltimore." YEAH, well . . . And check this out: The Better Business Bureau of Greater Maryland, facing complaints that its tele-marketers use high-pressure sales pitches to recruit new dues-paying members, is offering an award to recognize companies that treat their customers and employees ethically.

What if Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees were just guys doing a job, skilled craftsmen so good at what they did that they inspired others to follow suit? That's the premise of Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, a twisted little comic gem from Bethesda native Scott Glosserman that goes into limited release today after building up buzz over the past nine months at horror-film conventions. Behind the Mask (Anchor Bay Entertainment) Starring Nathan Baesel, Angela Goethals.
