When: 8 p.m. Feb. 16.Where: Painters Mill Theatre, Owings Mills.Tickets: $20.50.Call: 481-6000 for tickets, 581-2212 for information.Slayer singer Tom Araya can't help but smirk. Considering the way current events are catching up to those described in the song "War Ensemble," from the album "Seasons in the Abyss," Slayer suddenly seems uncannily prescient. Does he feel a bit prophetic when he sings those lyrics now?"Oh, just a little," he says with a laugh.It's not a pretty song by any means.

"Corril Slayer" Developer: Pure Bang Games Platform: PC Score: 9/10 Fear is a primal and essential component to the human experience. Fear keeps us safe, alert and cautious. It also freaks the ever living hell out of us. “Corril Slayer,” an 8-bit-style throwback from Baltimore's Pure Bang Games, plays on fear in a masterfully accessible way. You see, “fear” and “horror” are two different things altogether. This reviewer checked out of horror back in 1999 when the first “Silent Hill” game was released.

Buffy Summers has died before - twice, in fact. But this time, sadly, there will be no vampire CPR or resurrection spell to make things right again. For seven years and 143 episodes, the heroine of television's Buffy the Vampire Slayer has kept the world safe from whatever demons would wish us ill. But after Tuesday, after episode No. 144 concludes, after Buffy and the gang dispatch the ultimate evil they've been battling all season, that job will fall to someone else. The slayer is soon to be no more, slain by the actor who plays her and the writer who created her, both of whom have decided its time to move on. Major bummer.

The only thing that can save Angel, the vampire lover of Buffy, is to drink the blood of a slayer. But the only slayer on hand is Buffy."Drink me," Buffy commands the fading angel, and, boy, does he ever, coming back to life as he drinks like you wouldn't believe.If this isn't a metaphor for sex (and, I might add, one of the more intense, sensual and violent metaphors for sex I have ever seen in a teen drama), then I'm the king of Transylvania, baby.The long-delayed and much-discussed season finale of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" will finally air tonight on the WB, and I hope every parent of a teen-ager and every adult who has been flapping his or her jaws about teens and popular culture since the carnage at Columbine will watch.

NOTHING GOOD COMES EASYRoger Clinton (Pyramid 71826)If nothing else, Roger Clinton certainly has courage. After all, how many other semi-talented singers would dare put the words Nothing Good" in the title of their first album? To be honest, though, "Nothing Good Comes Easy" isn't all that bad an effort. Not only does he stay on pitch throughout, but he actually manages to navigate the album's super-slick arrangements with some semblance of style. Granted, his voice doesn't have much character to it, and there's little that's memorable about his material -- which ranges from the Eddie Money-ish "Brother Brother" to the pallid soul of "Different Man" -- but that just makes him bland, not bad. As for whether anyone will actually buy the album for its musical value, ask yourself: Did anyone drink Billy Beer for the taste?

The controversial season finale of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" -- yanked from the schedule in May in the wake of the Colorado shooting tragedy -- has been given a July 13 airdate by the WB network.The episode was to have ended the hit series' season on May 25, but network executives were concerned that its wild and somewhat violent ending would have seemed insensitive coming just days after the high-school killings.In the episode, the conclusion of a two-part installment, the kids of the fictional Sunnydale kill the town's evil mayor, who by the end of the show had morphed into a 60-foot creature.

"For 15 years I have stood up against the right-wing machine, and I've come out stronger," Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said at a Democratic presidential debate this year. "So if you want a winner who knows how to take them on, I'm your girl." Again and again, Mrs. Clinton tells Democratic primary voters she can win the 2008 general election because she knows how to fight the Republicans. And it's true that probably no contemporary public figure outside her marriage has more experience fighting Republicans.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is back on the big screen -- this time with a new spin. The character first appeared in the 1992 movie, which spawned a hit TV show and earned her a cult following. Now, Clinton McClung is screening a singalong called Buffy the Musical in cities around the country. It comes to the Avalon Theatre in Washington this weekend. The singalong version of Buffy started as a tribute to a single TV episode. McClung, a self-admitted "Buffy geek," ran a movie theater in Boston a couple of years ago. In November 2004, he thought it would be fun to screen the episode "Once More With Feeling" as a singalong for himself and a few of his friends.

When audiences last saw the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in May 2003, Buffy and her friends had won a nearly apocalyptic battle between good and evil. Their hometown of Sunnydale, Calif. -- also known as the Hellmouth -- was a gargantuan pit as a result. After peering into the crater, Buffy, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, walked away with a smile, and the television series came to a close after seven seasons. On March 14, Buffy the Vampire Slayer will return in comic book form. Joss Whedon, Buffy's creator, has written the first five issues and will oversee -- or "executive-produce," he says -- the whole arc as if it were a television show.

THE QUESTION The phone has been an important part of thrillers and scary movies. Scream, Cellular, Phone Booth, When a Stranger Calls, anyone? When was the last time you nearly jumped out of your skin when a phone rang onscreen? WHAT YOU SAY Absolutely, positively one of the greatest telephone suspense films is Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 classic Dial M for Murder. Grace Kelly stars as a philandering wife whose tennis-pro husband carries out a plot to murder her. In true Hitchcock fashion, things go horribly awry.

He was 27, a drug addict with a lengthy criminal record who stumbled into a Baltimore public housing project, high on heroin and cocaine and hungry for more. The drug deal went badly, and Geronimo J. Hunt was shot twice, once in the head and once in the back. He fell onto a grassy spit of land in O'Donnell Heights, curled into a fetal position, bleeding to death. "He was a victim of a disease, drugs, and these people out here, standing here, selling drugs to him," said Hunt's 30-year-old fiancee, Melissa Beckette, who has turned the murder scene into a mini-shrine with photos, hand-written cards, a clutch of plastic flowers and a teddy bear in a white wedding gown.
